    I'm a believer that if there's something you don't like, it's probably just because you haven't learned how to make it taste really good yet. I used to never touch stuff like kale, broccoli, or brussels sprouts, but now I love all of them since I've learned how to make each of them taste good in a lot of different ways.

    Definitely love a few of the things in this thread for adding more kale to your diet:

    1. Green smoothies

    2. Massaged with avocado and lemon juice into a salad, then adding whatever else you like.

    3. Sauteeing it in bacon fat, then adding the crispy bacon to the saute at the end.

    Good luck!

      Grilled kale is awesome! Little olive oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper.

        Don't eat it raw. Cook it with a ton of coconut oil and butter, smoked paprika, and a small splash of apple cider vinegar.

          If you bother to learn to love kale, you'll find it to be one of the most versatile of the leafy greens. There's just so many different ways of preparing it that it really becomes a kitchen staple as your not limited to just one style of preparation.

          It's also pretty nutritious, but there are other things that pack as much punch.

          You can have kale baked, steamed, fried, raw in salads, creamed or puréed in a mash, in smoothies. Use it as a side, entree, main or in a super weird dessert (I've seen the recipes but haven't yet tried sweet kale rolls)

          My favorite kale recipe is a main meal that takes about 10-15 minutes to cook. It's my go to 'too lazy to make dinner' recipe and my family loves it.

          Use about a half a bunch for 2.5 people. Cut all the stems out (my worms love kale stems.. I Just chop em up into 1 inch sections for them). Then roughly chop leaves into strips.
          In a fry pan melt a big knob of butter, add 1 whole head of minced or roughly chopped garlic. Leave it on a low heat while you prep your mushrooms. Remove the stems of 1 punnet of button mushrooms (or chop up a few portabella's. yummo!) throw the mushrooms in the pan, turn the heat up & fry until they are looking just cooked. Then dump all your kale in on top, stir it all around until it goes bright green, has wilted to about half it's volume & looks evenly coated in butter.
          Serve on plates, drizzle with pan drippings & eat.

          Perfect Wednesday night dinner.

            Kale is good for you, it steams the kale, it eats the kale, it learns to like kale.

              It rubs the kale on its skin, or else it gets the hose again! http://youtu.be/Jm86I_kezVY

                    I ordered something at a restaurant last month that was a game changer. It was warm kale salad with grilled chicken on top. Holeeee crap it is good. The next week they had it with salmon. I make it now twice a week and no matter how much I make, everyone devours it. It's just three things; shredded carrots, shredded kale (rib removed) and shredded red cabbage. You sautee it in CO and bone broth. Damn good.

                      I can see how that would work. I'm not a fan of cold/raw veggies hardly ever. However, when I sauté spinach and tomato with garlic in EVOO, I love it.

                      Kale, not so much. But, if a dish looked good all except for the kale, I'd most likely order it.

                        We had kale a few times when it was in season. At first everyone was like yuck kale , but the Indian spices and some coconut milk changed their minds quickly.
                        Also lots of hearty meat.
                        What to do: Eat real food, enjoy your food, get out into the sun as often as possible, move around, sleep well and early (like before 11 p.m.), have health as your main goal.

                        You are probably going to fail if you: Restrict carbs or fat or calories, avoid fruit (because sugar derp), punish yourself with diet/exercise, have weight loss as your only goal,....

                          I just wiz frozen kale up with banana and berries in my nutribullet a couple times a week. Sometimes I alternate that with spinach. Not sure if I am really digesting it and getting the nutrients, though, heh. I have bought kale several times thinking I was really gonna get serious and eat it this time.....nope. I agree with others that say don't eat it if you don't like it. Life is full enough with having to do stuff we don't like.

                            Making this right now. OMG. It's the warm kale salad I mentioned. You just toss goodies in a wok and then go crazy eating it.

                              Don't worry about it. Looks like we're almost out of it.

                                If I did that I'd eat Big Macs and Donuts all day. I eat healthy because it makes me feel better and weigh better, not because I like it all that much.

                                Yeah but they don't sell that many in any grocery store. Where I live theres a few dozen maybe?

                                I sometimes put kale in my soup. Simmering for a long while helps soften it up and make it edible.
                                Finally started starting the diet - 5/8/12.
