As any good nutrition student would, I tried desperately to like kale when I was in college. I tried multiple recipes, but to my dismay, I could barely stomach the taste of this superfood. I gave up for a few years, only managing to add the green to my smoothies. A few years later, on the evening of my Master's graduation, I sat with my family at the True Food Kitchen in Fairfax, VA. If you are unfamiliar with the restaurant, it was created by Dr. Andrew Wiel, who has devoted much of his life to mastering the anti-inflammatory diet. [I will talk more about this in the future].
So there I am, trying to decide what to get, when in reality I want to try EVERYTHING. The waitress recommends the Kale Caesar. For a minute I am flooded with flashbacks of my failed attempts and remind myself that I couldn't possibly be a respected dietitian if I don't like kale. So I go for it...
Have you ever take a bite of a dish and actually felt the 'whoosh' of your mind being blown?
Not only did I like the salad, I was obsessed. I devoured it. I licked the plate clean.
So here we are today, with my version of that tasty salad. Hope you like it!
