<p>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!<br />
<br />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 <a title=”365daysofkale.com” href=”http://www.365daysofkale.com/”>365daysofkale.com</a>. So hail to Kale any which way you eat or drink it! </p>
