Little Green Girl doesn't really like eating leafy green vegetables so I was pleasantly surprised to see that she liked our homegrown Kale in her shake. They say it takes 10-15 attempts to potentially get your kid to eat a new vegetable so having her consume it in a shake made me very happy!
If you're as crazy about Kale as I am, you might want to know Diana Dyer, she loves Kale too! She's is a registered dietitian, multiple time cancer survivor, avid gardener, and blogger at 365daysofkale.com
