My devotion to greens

Lately I’ve been eating a lot of the same things. I think they may be my favorite foods but I hate saying I have favorites because I love to eat so many different things.

They are all greens!

Kale-

I can not get enough kale. When I finish up a bunch I freak out a little bit because I feel like I should ALWAYS have kale on hand. The chewy/crunchiness of it is incredible. It’s so easy to make too. Sometimes I just toss it in olive oil and a little bit of salt and throw it in a pan for a couple of minutes. Other times I toss it in the same ingredients and broil it to make it extra crunchy. (BE CAREFUL! I lit it on fire when I was in the Outer Banks because I was toooo distracted!)
I also like to mix it in with other veggies (eggplant!) or scrambled eggs. Yum.

Arugula-

So refreshing. The peppery, slightly bitter crunch of arugula is awesome. My favorite way to eat arugula is under a tomato salad with a little bit of balsamic vinegar.  I also will nibble on a couple of leaves if I open the fridge to find some sort of snack. I find that I always eat arugula and tomatoes on the side of a nice juicy steak.. maybe they are just a nice match.

I guess my guilty pleasures could be SO much worse… but these two greens are heavenly.

Does anyone have any good recipes for arugula or kale? Or a suggestion on how to put them together?
