Happy National Kale Day!

image(9)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!

Colorful Veggie Frittata

photo(91)This veggie frittata was a huge hit here among my Labor Day house guests! Made with eggs, egg whites, lots of veggies, and a touch of cheese, it’s tasty, savory, and satisfying. Best of all, it only takes about 30 minutes! (Feel free to sub your favorite veggies.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs plus 2 egg whites
  • 1 handful arugula
  • 5 whole white mushrooms
  • 1 bunch baby broccoli (cut in small pieces, discard stems)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 zucchini
  • A few tablespoons chopped scallions
  • spices to taste (basil, rosemary, salt, and pepper)
  • 2 tablespoons chevre cheese (optional, sub for favorite cheese or leave out)
  • Pan spray

In a pan, cook broccoli and mushrooms with half of scallions. Turn off heat and add arugula to flash sautee. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Add spices and remaining scallions. Mix in veggies and cheese. Pour mixture in a greased oven-safe dish and cook for 20-30 minutes (test with a fork to ensure eggs are cooked through.) Let cool and serve!
