    Awesome, thanks!! I also do not orgasm over raw kale salads (although the one from your book sounds pretty tempting…). I’ve tried, I really have. I just don’t get how bitter greens make people’s mouths delight in joy. I LOVE the cooked versions of many greens, but unfortunately not so much the raw, unless it is the milder-tasting leaves like romaine, butter, etc. I did grow up on fresh sauerkraut, so I guess that counts. 🙂 I really like your ‘garnish’ idea toward the end. I’ve NEVER thought to do that. (And I don’t think I ever would have thought that up on my own.) I thought I was being innovative by slicing my broccoli stems into medallions and sauteing them with garlic, onions, and julienne-sliced collards. 🙂 I enjoyed quite a bit of raw kale-pineapple-lemonade juice over the summer, but I had to cool it on the raw kale. Does your thyroid react to it? Mine sure did. I could actually feel that area ‘tingle’ after a few glasses of juice over the course of a few mornings. Oh, well. It was good while I had it!

    Amazing! This weekend, we were given 3 FREE bags of organic Swiss chard. This morning I was wondering if I could use them in smoothies. I was even going to post it on Facebook – and today you answered my question! Thank you!

    Some fantastic ideas! I love a big plate of sald but I also love the idea of sneaking greens into every meal. Thanks for the great tips!

    This is a great article, I have a leaf aversion myself so smoothies, soups and sauces I feel are the best way to get the veggies I need.

    Great in depth post for non salad lovers. I usually start my day with a giant green smoothie then a big salad for lunch and then dinner varies. Thanks for new twists on the classics! Looking forward to your un-cookbook. Your pics are amazing!!!

    I’m so glad you shared this. I’m a nutritionist, and though I love greens, I hate raw salads too! Blech. Good to know I’m not the only one.

    What you say is quite funny, and I can relate in a way because I generally avoid salads. Not because I dont like vegetables, but because I generally find them boring in taste!
