If you don't like the way kale tastes, try a different recipe.
My mom and I are obsessed with eating lunch at Wegman's. I mean, what's not to like, they have tons of diverse foods to choose from, plenty of seating, you don't have to tip a server, and you have the opportunity to get in a nice stroll after eating in their large store. Plus, they have plenty of space for kids to be kids :).
One of our favorite raw vegetable dishes that Wegman's serves in their salad bar is their kale salad. And did I mention that Wegman's kindly list the ingredients for almost any dish they serve in their food bar, woo hoo! Once I realized how ridiculously easy it would be to make their tasty kale salad recipe at home, I jumped on the opportunity to make my mom smile.
A little warning, it does require some "handy" work. If anything it will help you brush up on your massaging skills, haha.
Let's grab a few ingredients and enjoy this delicious and creamy way to eat yo KALE!
SIMPLE MAYO KALE SALAD
1. Place chopped kale in a large bowl.
2. Add in extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Massage kale with hands until the leaves are bright green and feel tender (about 20 seconds).
3. Add in mayo. Gently massage mayo onto the kale leaves as well.
4. Add in dried cranberries, slivered almonds, salt and pepper. Add more toppings if you desire!
If you want to make this salad a balanced meal, try adding some protein such as, rotisserie chicken, a couple boiled eggs, steak or even some canned tuna!
If you enjoy simple salads, try this delish Caesar Chop Breakfast Salad on for size too!

Knowledge is power. Knowledge shared is power multiplied.
Life can get chaotic at times and I want you to be armed with the knowledge of how you can still handle your chaos (like a motha) while putting as close to real foods into your beautiful body as well.
Here are some of my Healthy-ish Tips for what to eat when visiting fast food joints in your travels. Make the best decision for you and your family with the knowledge you have at hand, that's all we can do.
Let me first preface that you're going to see "avoid the bun" a lot in my tips. Avoiding breads, rolls, wraps or flatbreads is the best decision for your health, as almost all chain fast food joints use enriched flours to make them, even if they use terms like "whole wheat" or "whole grain" which to me is just fake advertising.
Some companies will do almost anything to make their food sound healthy, which is really sad. This is why I always read the ingredients!
Also, if you can, taking that tiny extra step to travel with your own dressings and/or sauces will do your beautiful body a HUGE favor. Most sauces and dressings in restaurants and fast food joints are made with soybean oil. Choose dressings made with either olive oil or avocado oil. Some of my favorite brands of both sauces and dressings to travel with are ones from trusted companies such as, Tessamae's and Primal Kitchen.
Okay loves, here are some healthy-ish tips when dealing with chaos on the go!
Tropical Smoothie Café:
Other healthier fast food options include, Chipotle, CAVA, Subway or any grocery store’s salad bar (my favorite option).
All in all, I hope these healthy-ish tips help you feel more empowered and in control to make the best choices for you and your family. Share this knowledge with a friend, a co-worker or family member to spread the health love to others!
