I’ve been trying and trying and trying to like this superfood. I just don’t like it. Any way I make it, it’s still disgusting. My least favorite vegetable, the only food that makes me gag when I try to swallow it: Brussel sprouts. I like Kale even less, though it doesn’t make me gag like Brussel Sprouts do.
I tried to make Kale Chips. It’s in the Trim and Healthy Mama book, it’s on Pinterest, I have friends who rave about them. Gag.
I was really careful to get all the stems off, spritz the leaves with olive oil and used this yummy vegetable seasoning that generally makes everything taste yummy. Baked them until crispy. They did have a nice crunch, but after the crunch, NASTINESS filled my mouth!
She didn’t like it either. She willingly tried them, with great expectation. I ate mine before I shared them with everybody else, I thought maybe it was just me. I promise, they didn’t see ME make this face!
“Can I spit this out?”
Marshmallow seemed to like them, at first. She stuffed quite a few in her mouth.
I even caught her sneaking a few. Then I saw her spitting the kale out and putting the chewed up Kale back in the bowl. Um…
Then she started making this face. Yeah, no more Kale for her! There were more Kale pieces on my floor than her mouth or stomach!
Maybe you have a suggestion? I just can’t figure out how to eat this super food. To me, it’s super-ly yucky!
