I love kale. I eat it at least twice a day - in salads or smoothies. BUT I have to wilt it in order to eat it in a salad. Something about it's natural texture kind of creeps me out. So how to you wilt it? Simple!
1. Start with kale in a bowl along with sea salt and olive oil. I put mine in a 'misto' so it just sprays out.
2. Spray just a bit of olive oil (any kind) onto the kale and sprinkle some sea salt. Then you just massage it in. The kale will then naturally start to wilt. It only take about a minute.
And then just add the rest of your ingredients for your super salad! Since I just got back from the farmers market, my lunch today was full of fresh goodness:
Cut up Baby Spinach
Raw Sunflower seeds
1/2 of a fresh peach
and an egg.
Just what I needed after my killer workout this morning.
Two hour ride followed by speed work with Carla, Ron, and Coach. The ride was solo and in the dark for some of the way. Creepy. The speed work was a bitch - but in a good way. I really have not done any speed work for the past few months - but we are going to start focusing on it. My run goal for IMTX will be for under 5 hours. Better start now! Anyway - it was flipping hot and I puked at the end of #6 out of eight 1/2 mile repeats. Awesome, but it felt great.
Can't wait to do it again next Saturday.
Don't let me catch you parking like crap.
Yep, I have a whole book of these bad boys, and I'm not afraid to use them!
