This salad is really easy to make and really delicious. I could eat it all day in a giant mixing bowl. I may have done that. I don’t always massage my kale mostly out of laziness. It’s always worth it and always better when you do. It breaks it down and makes it easier to […]

The Number One Way To Eat More Salad

This might sound simple, but doing this one task every time I get a head of lettuce has greatly increased my salad intake. For a while I would get lettuce (spinach, kale, arugula, or whatever) and it would just sit in my fridge until it wilted and died a sad, uneaten death. The challenge for […]
