you know what - i hate the taste of kale even in a smoothy sourrounded with tons of distracting flavors - i can sniff the taste of kale out like a frilly up a gum tree - i know its really good for you but my body and spirit rejects it as no for me - pitty i know, its a awesome green.
Raw School is not an 811 site but she has a good reference chart! :)
You can read in the 80-10-10 book about high cellulose foods.
A quote from The 80/10/10 Diet book from page 27:
"It is true that cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, brussels sprouts, and cabbage are loaded with nutrients, including soluble fiber. But they also contain cellulose and other difficult to digest or even indigestible fibers. By indigestible fibers, I mean that our digestive system cannot break down these materials and must therefore eliminate them. And unlike soluble fibers, these indigestible fibers are rigid and may scratch and scrape our delicate digestive lining as they pass through...These vegetables are best digested in their youngest and most tender state. For best results, they must be thoroughly chewed or mechanically predigested via the use of the blender or shredding device...To be sure, we are capable of swallowing vegetation that contains cellulose and other rough, insoluble fibers, but such foods put a great load on our organs of digestion and elimination."
If you must use the Kale you already have, I'd juice it and then add it to a banana smoothie so you have the fiber going in to your body with it.
hi!,im not over keen on kale but when i do have it in a salad i just chop it up small and mix with other things to take the taste off of it. :)
