Growing up I wasn’t every introduced to eating kale. I saw it on my plate from time to time at restaurant but thought it was for presentation purposes only. I would even go as far to say that my parent told me not to eat it because of that reason. Through our journey to eating cleaner and more nutrient dense foods, kale just seemed to keep popping up. So I gave it a try and well it didn’t go very well. No one liked it including me, I continued eating it mostly for the health benefits and slowly my body adjusted. I was able to get more creative with it and eventually came up with this easy cheesy kale salad combo.
