Sweet Collards

This Wahls' worthy bowl was so delicious and healing.  I cooked the collards quickly in bacon with large chunks of garlic and whole fresh cranberries.  Toward the end, I added organic raisins, fennel seeds and a pinch of himalayan salt. 

When Ellie hears me chopping, she comes running.  I save the larger stems for her.  I toss them to her and that little ole lady pup leaps to catch them in mid-air, quickly and noisily gobbling them up one by one.  It's a fun game and she can never get enough greens!  Neither can I.

A Warm Salad for Dinner

This was lovely -- it was loosely based upon one of Dr. Wahls' recipes (Bacon Salad).  Since my husband is not fond of bacon, and I had some organic chicken thighs to use, I subbed these chicken pieces for the bacon.  They were  quickly seared at high heat, with salt and pepper.  The kale was first rubbed with oil and lemon, then topped with sauteed brussels sprouts, carrots and chick peas, and the hot chicken finished it, along with a scant drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze.  This was a hit!
