Kale on the Radio!

(Photo: Our garden kale last December ready for the last harvest before a large snowfall finally covered it all up for the season)

I was interviewed today about my passion for the health-promoting benefits of eating kale on an upcoming segment on the new radio show called 101 Foods to Save Your Life hosted by Dave Grotto, RD, author of the book by the same name. The show will air on Saturday February 28, 2009 at 8:30 AM Central time. There are 3 ways to hear it.
  1. Hear it live at 8:30am CST on AM 1160, WYLL (Chicago)
  2. Hear it streaming live at 8:30am CST at WYLL
  3. Catch the podcast after the airing date at Dave's radio show website
My friend, dietitian, and chef Maggie Green will also be on the show talking about how to prepare kale. Check out Maggie's great blog FromMyKitchenTable, which is one of my favorite blogs.

I only had 11 minutes on the show and (typically!) was over-prepared. I had so much I wanted to share about the benefits of eating kale (and its many relatives in the Brassica family) that there was not time to cover. So, of course, I'll be adding all that information to my blog, bit by bit.

So tune in to the radio show live on February 28 or catch the podcast at your convenience after the show airs. I certainly will be doing so because I want to hear if what I had to say made any sense at all (!!) and of course, I want to hear what helpful tips Maggie has to offer, too. :-)

Several of my kale recipes along with several from Maggie will be posted on Dave's website. Until then, I will continue moving many of my kale recipes over from my dianadyer blog while also posting new ones here.

Where kale is more than decoration on my plate!
