i kill fat! kale is dope!

Ok I’ve never really gotten into kale, but I’ve been hearing about how amazing it is just sautéed with garlic from everyone, so I looked online to find some recipes. I’ve been on Weight Watchers now since Christmas and have lost about 13 pounds. It’s slow but steady for me. So, I’m always on the look out for satisfying low points meals.

This was so amazing I have to share it cause I could eat this shit every day! Seriously! You have to get the right kind of kale for it to be as good as what I had. I went to  Whole Foods and got the Lady Moon organic lacinato kale… see picture below.

Update! I tried regular kale this week because they were out if this kale and it totally tasted great! So it must be the recipe!


Here’s the recipe I used: http://www.food.com/recipe/my-favorite-sauteed-kale-364252


1 1/2 lbs kale, stems and leaves coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

1/2 cup vegetable stock or 1/2 cup water

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add crushed red pepper flakes, if using, and let them sizzle a bit in the oil.
Add the garlic and cook until soft, but not colored.
Raise heat to high, add the stock and kale and toss to combine.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Remove cover and continue to cook, stirring until all (most) the liquid has evaporated. I like the kale to still remain bright-ish green.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and add balsamic vinegar.
