I was trying to get my Dad on the kale bandwagon for ages, and failing miserably…until I discovered the secret to yummy kale: LEMONS!
The problem with kale is a lot of people are turned off by its slightly bitter taste. The quick fix for this is lemon juice & salt. For a full head of kale, you need the juice of approx 1 lemon. Once you’ve washed and chopped the kale into bite size pieces, squeeze fresh lemon juice and sprinkle some sea salt (just a touch) onto the kale. The key is to then massage the lemon juice into the leaves of the kale (with your hands!) for a good minute or two. This gets rid of that icky bitter taste, and voila – you can enjoy this leafy green superfood, that is FULL of Vitamin A (eye health), Vitamin K (bone health), & anti-oxidants (heart health).
