Kaletastic!

Tonight for supper I made for my mother and I a delicious supper of turkey meatballs, spaghetti squash and an absolutely scrumptious salad. I was originally planning on posting my meatball recipe, however this time around they didn’t turn out so pretty. I’ve made them many times already and they turn out great. I guess that’s what I get for not writing down the recipe when I made them the first time.

Despite the petrified meatballs, the salad turned out beautifully. I know that kale contains so many great nutrients, but I just can’t get over the fact of how much roughage it is. I swear I have chew it for at least two minute before I can finally swallow. I  figured out a couple new tricks to make this super green easier to digest…well I wouldn’t exactly say they’re new tricks. It’s basically just cutting the Kale up in smaller pieces…common sense! Something I hadn’t been using with this kale green since my mom started buying it. That is until now :)
