The Super Food Kale

Kale is the all the craze these days and rightfully so.  Did you know that kale is among the most nutrient dense foods on the planet…

Have you tried cooking kale in one of your Xtrema All Natural 100% Ceramic Skillets?  If not, you need to fire up the stove and get sauteing.  It’s pretty simple, just add a splash of EVO in your ceramic skillet, heat on low for several minutes and then add in the kale.  Cook the kale up until it is dark green in color.  Make sure to fill the skillet full as kale, like spinach, it really cooks up.   Add some onions and fresh garlic for taste.
