Happy National Kale Day!
Today is the day. Wednesday, October 2nd officially marks the celebration of…KALE! Yes, kale is everywhere. Kale is trendy. Kale is crunchy. Kale is the king of superfoods. If you haven’t jumped on the kale train, you just may reconsider once you’ve tried the classic green juice’s indulgent, crunchy, yummy-in-my-tummy friend, kale chips!
Yummy (in my tummy) Kale Chips: Preheat oven to 325 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut stems off one head of kale, wash and dry. Cut into pieces and spread out on cookie sheet. Massage kale with coconut oil (no more than a tablespoon total.) Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes or until crisps. Let cool and serve as chips. So crispy, so light, so healthy…SO good!

Picture Perfect Picnic
July is National Picnic Month, so pack a picnic today! Picnic’ing is one of my favorite things to do during the warm weather months. Taking a meal outdoors reconnects us with nature and reminds us of the beauty that surrounds us. It’s always fun to switch things up as dinnertime can become routine; picnics make a meal into a party! Pack a picnic for a family hike or bring a picnic to the beach for a great date night. Whether it’s just a couple of pre-made sandwiches or a whole gourmet meal, picnics add a fun adventure. Either way, wine is a must 😉
Here’s what you’ll need to pack the perfect picnic:
- picnic basket, cooler, or bag to hold everything
- large blanket to sit on
- food! some simple/portable ideas include: sandwiches, wraps, a pizza, salad, cheese platter, fruit salad, bread, etc.
- utensils (forks/knives/spoons/cups/plates/napkins)
- drinks (be sure to bring water…and wine/beer if you wish!)
- bottle opener
- plastic containers
- ice packs
- a trash bag for your garbage
- bug spray, incense, or a bug-repellent candle
- bring a book or magazines if you’re solo
- toys or bubbles if you’re with kids
- a camera to capture the fun!
One Healthy Breakdown: a picnic can turn a regular meal into a family party or a romantic getaway, picnic it up today!
