Yeah, kale, you know that curly green stuff they put on the side of your plate for decoration. Turns out you can actually eat the stuff. Who knew??
So, I've read in that if you mix it in a smoothie, you can't even taste it. Oh really (as she raises a skeptical eyebrow....)?
So the grocery store now carries the curly stuff in a giant bag, all cut up and washed. So I thought I'd give it a try. EAS Lean 15 Chocolate mix, 8 frozen cherries and a cup of almond milk and the rest of the bullet stuffed with kale, a-whirlin' she went. And they're right! Can't even taste it!! I'll have to check my teeth for residue--ended up a lot like cooked spinach. It didn't completely dissolve, you could see it, but it went down rather smooth.
Sold!! My go-to pre/post workout blend. 4 WW points---would be 3 but I had a coupon for So Delicious Almond Vanilla (or coconut) and they didn't have the unsweetened almond, so it cost me 2 pts instead of 1. I'm not gonna quibble.
