that can help you look better and feel better!
When was the last time you had kale?
Do you eat kale regularly — say, every week?
Do you like kale, or hate it?
If you don’t like kale, I encourage you to experiment with preparing it in different ways until you a find way that you can enjoy kale, because kale can contribute to your vitality and longevity.
How to Make Kale Chips
My good friend Kirsten makes something called “Kale Chips,” which are surprisingly delicious (I know, I know. It doesn’t sound like something you would enjoy. But here’s the thing: you probably would. Even her young kids love it).
Basically, she cleans the dark, green leafy vegetable — kale — and then she bakes it in the oven on a pizza stone or cookie sheet. At some point during the baking process, she sprays the kale with “Bragg’s liquid aminos,” which is kind of like a healthy version of soy sauce.
“…kale’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities
work together to prevent and even combat cancer”
After the kale has been baked in the oven, it breaks into small pieces about the size of potato chips and can be stored into baggies or containers and enjoyed as a healthy, energizing snack. Freakin’ delicious! And so good for you.
Adding Kale to Smoothies
If preparing kale chips at home is not your thing, here is an easy way to get some kale into your diet: the Kale smoothie. I had one today and it was fantastic. Hey, it’s a lot better than it sounds! Check out the video:
In freshly prepared green smoothies, I have kale almost every day.
According to VegParadise.com, “medical researchers believe that the whole family of cruciferous vegetables helps to prevent cancer.” The cruciferous family includes kale. Studies have shown that eating foods in this vegetable family speeds the liver’s ability to detoxify ingested toxins.
Leafy greens such as kale are “great sources of lutein and zeaxanthin. Studies have shown eating foods rich in these antioxidants can significantly reduce your risk of AMD (age-related macular degeneration), as well as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.” Kale is packed with cancer-fighting antioxidants like beta carotene and vitamin C.
Kale is listed at webMD as one of five foods that can boost your health, asking viewers “what if you could make a conscious effort to add five healthy foods to your plate and make an improvement in your longevity?” The key, according to researchers, is to outsmart your body, which, as you age, is busy half-forming or damaging your cells, rather than creating healthy new cells resistant to cancer, rapid aging, and other ills: “cells are damaged by free radicals [which can lead] to bad cell behavior such as cancer.”
Kale is a nutritious, fiber-filled green that is ranked highest in antioxidants in a Human Nutrition Research Center study!

How to Use Your Blender to Become Lean and Energized! ~ eBooklet
“…I read the eBooklet on making fresh green smoothies
and promptly set about changing my typical fruit smoothie
to have greens in it.
But I did not believe you when you said to start slowly!
I dumped a bunch of green stuff in the mixer and,
well… you know how it went.
Had to force it down! Now I changed to follow your advice:
start with just a few greens to the mix until I get used to it.
And guess what? I really like adding a little celery
and some radish sprouts.
Very good stuff! I’ll be adding a little bit more over time,
just like you suggested.
Sometimes it’s good to follow advice, eh?”

“…I’ve always been a no-breakfast person.
But what I didn’t realize was that
skipping breakfast only made me lethargic and lazy all day long.
And I’d eat a whole lot more at lunch than I would have otherwise!
So, when I came across Dane’s smoothie recipes,
I decided to give them a shot.
Only one week in and I already feel much more energetic
than I have in the last ten years.
And I also tend to eat less lunch
which is great to control increasing weight.
I plan to start smoothies for lunch too.
Slim waistline, here I come!”
