I’ve been noticing Baby Kale in our “regular” grocery store these past few months, but Trader Joe’s just one-upped them by selling a pre-washed, bagged Holy Trinity of nutrition: baby kale, baby chard, and baby spinach.
You now officially have NO excuse not to get a metric bum-load of nutrients and cancer-fighting phytonutrients in your diet.
Also, watch this 2 minute video to see what eating a half cup of broccoli sprouts does to estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer cells.
Yeah. Got get some now, I tell you.
Besides, baby kale is twenty million times easier to eat than adult kale. (It just seems wrong that cooked kale works better than raw kale as according to this research, but whatever) Try chopped baby kale in chili or tortellini soup or quiche or sauteed with shrimp, garlic, and red pepper flakes or on pizza.
My kids sometimes will eat “kale chips” (oven roasted kale with tons of salt and garlic pepper) but it’s a hit or miss thing. They’ll eat baby kale in spaghetti if I chop it finely and add it to the boiling noodles for the last ten seconds in order to blanche it (ditto for mac and cheese.)
