We had dinner at our friends' house recently & they made a delicious baked pasta dish with kale in it. It was perfect because Joel would have felt like a jerk not eating it, so he had to try it. And to my surprise and delight (hah), he didn't mind it. Which meant I needed to start sneaking kale into meals at home. This fritatta is the first I tried. And he loved it, yay!

Hooray for kale! Would like to find more ways to incorporate it into our meals.. I will probably try pasta next. I've been using brown rice pasta lately and it really tastes no different to me than whole wheat pasta. Curious to try quinoa pasta as well. I'm currently reading Wheat Belly and have already cut way back on wheat. Feels good! But the bread cravings that come with winter have definitely crept in.. Actually right now, I want some warm bread like crazy. It truly is addictive!! I still do splurge on it here and there, and it tastes even better than it used to because I really savor every bite :) But then I feel like taking a nap afterwards.
This fritatta, on the other hand, will energize you and provide lots of stuff your body actually needs like protein, vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. And hopefully curb those carb cravings!
