I'm forcing myself to eat it. The greenest thing I eat is lettuce and I've read kale is one of the best greens, nutritionally speaking, so if I'm going to force myself to like something it seems like a good choice.

Kale is disgusting. Vile weed. Also, learn to read the BS published by idiot dieticians. 95% of green vegetables are not "good for you." They have nothing in them. They are mostly undigestible cellulose, which sits in your stomach (humans can't digest it), taking up space, and as a result, you eat less. Thats the only benefit.

Look at the nutrition. It has almost nothing of value, other than vitamin A, which you can get by drinking a tasty fruit shake in the morning, without eating grass clippings. Same goes for spinach, broccoli rabe, etc.

I'm not a fan of it, but I know it's good for me so I throw a handful of it in with a smoothie.

1 banana
1 apple
some yogurt
some peanut butter
handful of kale
some berries (straw, rasp, blue, whatever)
almond milk
water
ice

blend

voila!

1. 1 green bell pepper ~ chopped
2. 1 yellow bell pepper ~ chopped
3. 1 whole onion ~ chopped
*your choice, I grabbed a white one.
4. 4lbs chicken fillets ~ cubed
5. 2 Tbs Sesame oil
6. Oil for frying
7. 2 Tbs Tabasco sauce
8. 2 Tbs Chili powder
9. 16 oz orange juice
10. Three Tbs corn starch
11. 1/4 Cup water
12. 2 cloves garlic ~ minced
13. Salt/pepper
14. 1/2 cup brown sugar

Sauté chopped peppers/onions in a large skillet, in another skillet cook up the cubed chicken with sesame oil, oil, tabasco, and chili powder, garlic (I coated the chicken in the oil/chili pepper/tabasco mixture before tossing them into the pan)

Once the chicken is nearly done, mix the cornstarch, water, orange juice together and add it to the chicken pan with the brown sugar. The liquid mixture will thicken up as it cooks, once that has happened, dump the chicken/glaze pan into the sautéed vegetables. Mix & enjoy. Salt & pepper to taste.

Should taste like orange chicken, but with a little heat afterward once you've acclimated to the mild sweetness. Let me know if I left anything out.

Rice: Follow the directions on the ****ing bag.

I hadn't attempted to keep track of what all I used, but this is everything. I usually just start cooking and do whatever sounds good and have some fun with it.

If someone wants to pick it apart and create a recipe using 'proper' cooking etiquette.. Go for it!! I'd appreciate it.

Do you think that will work for you in the long term?

If not maybe you can try to make something that's healthy but also more appealing to the palate. Perhaps something like stir fried bok choy / some cabbage variety? Or making soup with spinach? Another way is to incorporate some meat with your greens like chicken & broccoli. Yes I'm asian...

don't overlook the importance of fiber. Fiber is important for maintenance of GI health .dark greens are a good source of folate, vitamin C, A, and various antioxidants. Other veggies are good for supplement of various vitamins (e.g. B6) and also minerals. A balanced diet IS important and eating less IS a good thing for the majority of the population. There ARE ways to make vegetables tasty.

Kale is good for you for more reasons than just the Vit A (it also has a ton of K and C). It's got a ton of fiber and has some pretty strong anti-inflammatory properties which is good, and also provides a good shot of antioxidants. If more people ate things like kale, spinach (which is delicious), etc., we wouldn't have a nation of fat fvcks.

If you don't like it, don't eat it

I think so. I went back for another round of it last night because I wasn't quite full and it tasted better after sitting for awhile, honestly it isn't bad at all, and I hate most vegetables. I googled a bunch of recipes that use kale and I'm going to try them out, I'll report in as I work through them.

My point was that you can get all those things from things that don't taste like swampy a$$ that's all. I'd rather have raspberries for the antioxidants, an orange for the C, etc. tree bark has a lot of healthy vitamins as well, but we don't exactly eat that right? I didn't say "substitute kale for a cheeseburger."

Fruit does have its downsides though compared to vegetables (i.e. simple sugar intake). Probably not a big deal based on the amount most people eat
