is your kale massaged?

everyone is talking about it. everyone is eating it.

but is everyone massaging it?

i know i am.

here is the honest truth: i am not a huge kale fan. i eat it here and there at a trendy restaurant as long as it is drenched in a delicious dressing and topped with some sort of fruit or seed.

but i found a new way to genuinely enjoy my kale.


here is how you do it:

  • put your kale in a bowl
  • pour some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) on the kale
  • massage the kale by rubbing it and tossing it around for 15-20 minutes

the best part of the massaging method is that it still gives you the same health factors without the bitter, tough complex of the raw kale.

here is my favorite recipe for a massaged kale salad:

BOOM. there you go.
