Kale, I love you!

Did you have a good Thursday?

I am feeling 99.8% better than I was yesterday and will be able to resume all of my normal workout/run habits starting tomorrow!  Woo hoo!

Last night I became Susie Homemaker. It’s amazing what you can get done with all of this extra time on your hands.

The extra time meant I could experiment in the kitchen.  And boy am I sure glad I did!  I created a beautiful, delicious, and nutritious Kale, bacon, and egg casserole.  I love kale.  I love blending it into green smoothies every morning and I am constantly trying to find new ways to enjoy it.  This my friends, is a new way for me to get my green on!  Bacon + kale= match made in heaven.

Very easy, make up as you go & throw it all together recipe.

Ingredients:

1) 12- 16 oz of bacon (organic, nitrate free if possible) **Turkey bacon would probably work beautifully, but I used the real deal

2) 1 bunch of organic kale (any type is fine)

3) 6 carrots (peeled and shredded)

4) 1/2 cup Nutritional yeast plus more for sprinkling on top of casserole (can use cheese if you prefer & are not allergic 😉 )

5) chopped garlic, to your taste (I used 6 small cloves)

6) 1/2 teaspoon salt

7) pepper to taste

8) 4  eggs

Directions: 

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook the bacon until it’s nice and crispy, then lay out on a paper towel to cool

2) wash, dry, and finely chop all the kale (even the stems)

3) use a potato peeler to shred carrots

4) In a large bowl add the 4 eggs, kale, crumbled bacon, carrots, nutritional yeast or cheese, garlic, salt & pepper

5) Mix well

6) Pour mix into a greased 8 x 8 glass dish, sprinkle some nutritional yeast on top

7) Cook on 350 for 30-45 minutes

8) let cool & then slice and enjoy!
