Kale is getting its due respect!

(Photo: Dried tomato risotto with added kale)

In addition to the flurry of kale recipes published in the New York Times last week, I was informed today that my tip "How to use Kale in your cooking, and not as garnish" was chosen for the 'Nutrition Month RD Tip' feature on for their 550k monthly readers. You may see what I had to suggest for both why and how to enjoy eating kale here. Although I did not mention adding kale to risotto in my tips that were published, you can see how easy it was to do in the above photo. In addition to adding a healthy ingredient, the recipe is now even more beautiful! is the largest nutrition web site run by Registered Dietitians. It is voluminous and packed with easy to find and easy to read reliable information that will help you better manage your health through healthy eating, with a focus on preventive health. So check out what I had to say and then browse through their great website. I'll bet you'll find something of interest there that is helpful, healthful, and delicious!

Where kale is more than decoration on my plate!

Congratulations on being the featured dietitian on HealthCastle.

The only problem with kale getting so much respect is that it's in such high demand, all the kale seeds were sold out at the local garden centre last weekend! Just kidding. I'm happy to hear more people are growing kale as well as eating it.
