  1. I made an awesome lemon and lime dressing, and a Indian mix (I say Indian, but really, I mean there was coriander, cumin and chili involved). I found that kale chips are brilliant at being adaptive to any flavour. Once you get the hang of them you just can’t stop! I love them! (I also love kale cooked, briefly, with potatoes at the end of the boil and then being mashed – best thing ever, plus it’s green and fab for halloween).

    I love kale so much, Karen. I think it’s in season now, amirite? Thanks for reminding me of it’s existence, it’s so easy to forget.

  2. Thanks Hannah, you are right, kale is in season right now! It’s so important to eat locally to support our community farmers, lessen the environmental pollution used to transport food, and also to get the most nutrition. As soon as a fruit or vegetable is picked, it starts to lose nutrients. It’s best to get food from as close to home as possible.

    Karen.

    PS Thanks for the kale and mashed potatoes idea. I think I’ll try that!
