In January I toured a nearby gym, fell in love with its small-rinky-dink-cozy-homey ways, adored how the manager knew every person that walked through the door by name, and knew I had found the gym for me. Yesterday I signed up. Yes, yesterday. I am not so good with motivation when it comes to working out.
It seems that everyone I know who works out and is into fitness also loves kale. I have always known kale is good for you but recently I have had some renewed love and interest in the dark leafy green. I think with things like Pintrest kale went from wearing bottlecap glasses and hanging out with the nerds to being in the cool crowd, so I figured I would jump on the kale train too (I always wanted to hang out with the cool kids). One of the things to do with kale I keep seeing pop up all over is “Green Smoothies”. I was extremely skeptical I would like such a thing, but we have a huge crop of kale in our back yard so I thought it was worth a try. I have tried a few versions now and the only tip I have: don’t put too much kale in (not good); make any type of smoothie you want and keep the amount at about 1/2 cup and you can’t taste it at all!
Here is to working out and green smoothies!
