My love affair with kale

image

I eat way too much kale. Yes, kale. That green, leafy vegetable that hasn’t seen such popularity since the Middle Ages. 

A sizeable bunch of kale costs $1.00 at my local grocer. One dollar! Nothing costs a dollar anymore. Even the “dollar stores” had to change their names. Well, the kale costs a dollar and it lasts forever. The days of watching my arugula rot in my fridge after one day are over, or at least a more rare occurrence. 

The cheap endurance of kale has made it a food favorite for my lazy lunches. If you are in a crunch, here are three kale-heavy options, with as few ingredients as I can manage while maintaining an acceptable level of taste.

Salad #1
Kale
Black beans
Avocado
Almond slices
Olive oil + Lime juice + salt + pepper

Salad #2
Kale
White beans
Sugar snaps
Walnut pieces
Olive oil + Lemon juice + salt + pepper

Salad #3
Kale
Chickpeas
Strawberries
Walnut pieces (again)
Olive oil + Lemon juice + salt + pepper

So it’s basically just kale + bean + vegetable/fruit + nut (sometimes, I add feta or nutritional yeast) + dressing. 

Or you could just eat chocolate.

How I feel 80% of the time…

So apparently, this is a thing: Greenscreen-clad workers who secretly flip models’ hair during shampoo commercials. (via @makingofs on twitter)

if they would leave the mummy in the commercial I would be 200% more likely to purchase the product

I want someone like this to follow me around all day. If you have an invisible cloak I could borrow for them, I would be so grateful.

You must remember, it isn’t about “All men are menaces to women,” it’s about “All women have been menaced by men.”

The best shit I’ll read all week (via emlestrange)

The best ever response to the ‘not all men!’ crusade. If it’s not about you, stop making it about you.
