    I also can’t eat kale in any way but chip form, I can handle salad though. The food looks gorgeous regardless. Happy coconut thwacking!

  2. welcome to our wonderland

    I’m loving your daily account. 🙂 I am a vegetarian that don’t like kale either.

    That photo of you and Russell is hilarious! Hey, check this out: http://www.facebook.com/pages/EatMoreKalecom/101747780074 I predict you’ll be wearing one of these shirts some time in the future :).

    Laughed out loud at those pics. That’s awesome! Good job eating that salad hunny! I’m eager to hear about the rest of your creations…

    I believe that Russell could get you to do ANYTHING. (Well, food-related, anyway…) Well done you! But really, I’m just hangin’ out to hear more about this wonderful ice cream of yours…

    I actually really like kale, especially steamed with some soy sauce…yum!!
    Those pictures of you and the kale are hilarious! 🙂

    Hahaha! Funny post! “cocobutt”…love the term!! Looks like you were in coconut heaven! Yeppers…me so jealous!
    About your dislike for greens…I bet you “hide” them in green smoothies then, do you? It really can help if they aren’t your thing.

    Your kale salad looks incredible–I definitely would have eaten your serving for you! It looks like you’re having a great time with your class…love the snazzy chef outfit, too!

    Kale is wonderful in salad! It is the best stuff now I like. Maybe you will grow accustomed to it! 🙂

    Love the goofing around in the kitchen. I am not a huge salad person, although I do eat them, I just don’t down the huge servings that some raw foodies too. I figure I can get plenty in me through juicing and smoothies.

    I inquired to see if there were available spots. Rumors were flying around that Russell’s visa may not last long. I hope he can stay awhile.

    I’m loving your posts! So fun! Your photos are fantastic and I almost feel like I’m right there! Hopefully I will come to OKC soon….I’ve got a hankering for some 105 goodness!

    I have yet to tackle a coconut. They intimidate the heck out of me! I’m so impressed with your cleaving!

    I actually like kale a lot, so that salad looked awesome. Props to you for trying it.

  14. Helen @ Fuss Free Flavours

    Oh wow wow wow. I am still jealous.

    The salad looks lovely. I would eat it. Well done on having some.

    OK, I’m guessing cashew butter in the ice cream….just throwing that out there ;).

    “Massaged kale salad” just sounds dirty somehow….like if you told someone you were bringing it to a party, they would kindly remind you that this was a child-friendly event. That aside, it looks and sounds divine! Chipotle-tahini….I think that would make a fabulous soup….or hummus….(there’s that H word again).

    I’ve been thinking about doing a month of rawness just for the hell of it (though I’d include sashemi and carpacchios, because I’m of the mind that raw does not automatically equal vegan). Seeing these dishes is really making it difficult for me to talk myself out of it….

  16. Michelle

    LOL….I’m 100% with ya on the kale! Love the pictures. :o)

  17. Ela

    Great pictures and story! Cocobutt lol!

    Kudos to you for trying another something that you think you don’t like. That’s real personal development – and may turn out to be one of the more enduring things that you learn from the whole experience.

    thanks again for sharing. Awesome carrot! We grew one a bit like that this year – not quite as outrageous, but close (I think I posted a picture).

    I’ve never worked with a fresh coconut -nice work!

  19. Lori

    I’m so proud of you!!! Eating kale… that honestly is a big step for someone who doesn’t. 🙂
    Personally, I’d be ALL OVER that salad. YUM! Make me some of that chipotle-tahini dressing! Yum!

  20. Dana Pinder

    This salad looks amazing!! I think the hardest thing to get used to about kale is the “curly, krinklely” texture….other than that, I LOVE kale!

    I was laughing at your pictures. I DETEST kale in raw form. Yuck! I DO have in my greens drink, but I also have apples, carrots, cucumbers, celery, parsley, and often pineapple…so tons of sweet stuff to mask the bitter flavor. There is NOTHING tasty about raw kale. No one will ever convince me otherwise. 🙂 They are good slow-cooked! You look like you have a great time at school.
