Interesting ... so I took a look at 1 cup regular kale (33 calories) and how much dehydrated kale would equal 33 calories -- about 3 Tablespoons.

How much kale do people put in an omelet and count it as a serving? 1 cup? half cup?

I have started pureeing kale to use in soup to save all the chopping time. a 5 pound bag of kale gives me about 2-3 cups of puree.

It's fairly concentrated dried or pureed, so whether it's a full serving or a half serving of veggies or just a seasoning ... up to the individual.

How do dehydrated flakes count as a vegetable serving unless one consumes a few cups at a time? It's a seasoning in my book and not something I'd include in a nutrition tracker. If I'm missing something about it, please let me know. I'd hate to lose out on something that does have value.

I tried it yesterday and it's a good way to easily add another veggie. If you tweet them a recipe, you may win a sample pack.
