    Hi Sasha, fantastic video! You always come with such practical ideas, unbelievable – thank you. I love kale and have included it in my (almost) daily menu during the Canadian gardening season, much reduced compare to your area. I think I love it because I know how healthy it is, and as a result my brain says 'yummy!' every time I eat it. I add kale to my salad, as one of the ingredients: so it is not a kale salad, it is a salad with kale, amongst others. This is how I prepare it: I remove the large veins from 3-4 large kale leaves, then massage it: this is very important. The massaging means crushing it with the hands, basically using moves like you would hand-wash clothing. This will break its structure, bring the juices out and make it more bearable when munched. Then I cut it in small pieces and add it to the mix. Also in the bowl will go lettuce (iceberg, boston, romaine – whatever your favourite) as the main item beside the kale, then tomatoes, cucumber, green onion (this is a must), a little finely cut garlic clove, cauliflower, broccoli, green pepper, and the fillers: raisins, walnuts, ground flax seeds, kia seeds, hemp hearts and sunflower seeds. Instead of salt I add feta cheese. Finally the dressing is made of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pepper, and water – ratios to your taste. I have been eating this salad very often as the main meal, for over 15 years. It is a staple whenever we have guests – they all LOVE it and ask for it. With guests, the salad is a side dish to grilled fish, chicken or steak. Sorry for the long post: you asked for ideas on how to eat the kale, I have reacted to it! Enjoy, Emil

    Love the video! =) I wear glasses to and I feel sooo much better now LOL! I appreciate the planting tips.

    You asked about Kale recipes, Kale can be made into "chips". Remove stems and rub leaves with olive oil and bake them in the oven until crispy, OR , treat them like a Spinach and sautee with onions.

    Sasha, sorry but I couldn't resist: I like your way of 'eating out'. A very effective, economical way of eating out, your husband must be proud of you!

    Great idea on using it for juicing. We've used it like that too. We also put a little bit in our salads. And you are right… growing it yourself, you can save lots of money.

    awesome video Sasha.
    you have any ideas on veggies I can plant indoors because of limited outdoor garden space? thanks

    Nope, you keep the kale. It's too bitter for me. 2 yrs ago I was thinning my lettuce and I dropped the container in my gravel drive. I had the prettiest lettuce growing there about a month later. Great job Sasha.

    You're right..most kale varieties are quite strong in flavor to bitter. I find that you have to pair kale up with "sweet" things like apples & raisins..and this give a balance to the bitterness of kale.
