Yesterday at the Iowa football game, fans were encouraged to wear green in support of Brett Greenwood. Greenwood graduated from Iowa last year and suffered a heart attack on Sept 9 during a work out. He has since been in a medically induced coma.(photo from the AP)
Since I wasn’t at the game, I showed my support at home by only consuming green foods during the game.
I made kale chips:
To make kale chips, preheat oven to 350. Throughly wash and pat dry one bunch kale. Tear kale into bite-sized pieces and place in bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Toss so all kale pieces are evenly coated with oil. Place on baking sheets and bake 10-15 minutes or until edges are starting to brown. I placed cooling racks on the baking sheets and placed the kale pieces on top of the cooling rack so the air could circulate under the kale while cooking. I feel like this gives a more perfectly cooked chip.
and a green smoothie with kale, spinach and super greens:
