Hello to Kristy’s readers! My name is Kristina and I write spabettie – my place to share vibrant food with bright flavor. Kristy and I share many similar food philosophies – happy whole food. I was honored when she asked me to share some of my favorite recipes with you. I chose a theme for this collection – kale. I love kale, Jason (my other half) loves kale, even our dachshund Basil loves kale. Kale is an old favorite of mine, but I have a new way of preparing it that I just cannot get enough of – chiffonading. In a recent vegan fusion training, I finally massaged kale – and finally understood the hype. When I returned home, I took the massaged kale salad one step further – with a chiffonade.

I topped the kale with roasted beets and vegan goat cheese!
One of my favorites was pairing the kale with a steak. What??

…or topping my favorite snack:
Are you a kale fan? What is your favorite way to prepare it?
Thank you, Kristy, for having me here today, and thank you all for reading – Cheers!
