How much do you guys pay for one bunch of Kale? The price at the local store was $4.98 a bunch, there was one bunch there, and it looked as though someone had swept the floor with it.........and the one bunch wouldn't be enough anyway. Is that a good price to those of you who buy kale?
I'm asking because my dh has agreed to try it........

Sunday's foods UD

Lazy Day...just right for a stroll in the park..bbbut, of course, I didn't' do it...sigh!

Doris, I bought kale for 59 cents a bunch last week...my only caution is that right now we are flooded with Mexican produce and since they don't have the restrictions against pollutants we do, I'm careful about buying them...this cold snap we had probably raised the price astronomically. My favorite use of it is in Olive Garden's Zuppa Tuscana which I make any time I get some good Italian sausage...I hope your DH likes it, it is so good for you and I think very tasty just sauteed up and added to soups and other dishes...beans and greens is another good way to use it....just a touch goes a loooooong way.

B. noon, zucchini blini's, Canadian bacon, 1 egg, mock Hollandaise, half grape/crystal light for the pills and coffee/milk before and after

s. celery, bell pepper strips, cucumber slices and a cauliflower floweret, Earl Grey

S. OMG so good ...grilled salmon, scallops, and shrimp, Deglazed pan with butter & white Zin with a couple of roasted garlic cloves...soooo tasty! served with pot stickers, a few sugar pea pods and a glass of Zin

1500 kcals

I paid $2.49 for a big bag of chopped cleaned kale. I like it with sauteed onions and bably portobellos sliced up. But I can see where adding sausage would be delish!

Bingo, Mary, that is exactly what I'm looking for, and I'll ask at this Safeway for that product next time I get there!!! Thanks!

My dh was reading Health magazine, and pointed out some recipes using kale that he thought might be good, is why I ask............coming from him, this is exciting news

Start Date: June 2012
No breakfast this morning. With Dr. appt I wanted to get a correct weight without food. We had a nice talk about weight loss and I learned not to stress over all the diets but just relax and cut back on the higher fats. She already knows that I don't eat anything white. She agrees with that as it turns to sugar. I have kept my type 2 diabetes in remission by doing that and she is happy about that.

Lunch was pastrami rollup and 2 lite baby bell cheese balls

Dinner steak and broccoli

Snack berries with g. yogurt and walnuts

dk chocolate

Tuesday's foods UD

Feeling good, turned into a busy day...car serviced and recall taken care of that used up most of the day. Then, to the doc's for the holter device...how'm I going to sleep with this thing on...probably poorly but we'll see. appetite seems to be in control.

B. 1030 - 15.5 hours - fried egg, 1/2 Italian sausage with zuke and cottage cheese, 1 slice SL toast, crystal light for the pills, coffee/milk & half/half before and after.

coffee at the auto shop

S. cabbage with vinegar & lemon juice, radishes, bean soup with 2 oz chick breast, and chicken sausage, bread stick and a glass of white zin

1200 kcals if I eat all the supper which is doubtful. checked carbs and they have been very high so now am going to start restricting them.

Doris, kale here today was 1.69 a bunch. Rather high priced this time of the year. I love the stuff sauteed in olive oil and garlic. You can also make Kale "Chips" to snack on. Baked Kale Chips Recipe - Allrecipes.com

Tuesday:

Brunch at Wegman's: cottage cheese, cantaloupe cubes, few strawberries and coffee


Dinner: broiled bacon wrapped sea scallops, salad.

Chardonnay tonight
