A Spa Treatment for...Kale?

A Spa Treatment for...Kale?

Who doesn't like going to the spa? Facials, massages, sometimes it is oh so important to take some time to unwind and indulge in a little self care.

Well, like you, your kale also loves a little massaging!

A lot of people think you can't eat kale raw. They say its too tough and hard to chew. Well, to them I say, "do you massage your kale?" By massaging kale before you use it in a salad you allow it to soften and become easier to chew and digest. I usually massage my dressing ingredients right into my kale. You can certainly get fancy and mix up a dressing first and then massage your kale with it. Or you can massage your kale alone and add a dressing later. Whatever you choose to do, your kale will certainly love the treatment!

Here's my latest Clean, Pure and Simple How To video to show you just how easy it is to give your kale a massage!

And tomorrow I will be back with a new delicious kale salad recipe.
