“What the Kale?” Swapping kale for pasta
It’s that good. The secret is using baby kale leaves, they are tender and you don’t have to remove the stems. I bought mine bagged at my favorite supermarket Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley, California.
Pasta is the first thing to go on a grain-free diet.
Paleo peeps pine for pasta in the beginning. The secret is substituting pasta for veggies and heaping on your favorite sauce, veggie marinara….bacon cream sauce….bring it on.
Good pasta substitutes are:
- Spaghetti squash
- Zucchini cut into spiral (zoodles)
- Broccoli slaw
- Asian noodles (made from roots & the soluble fiber of yams, ie: Shirotake or Quest).
- DIY grain-free pasta
Here is a radical concept for pasta replacement. Greens. Ooooooh. Baby kale. Aahhhhhh.
Baby kale makes a great palate for zesty marinara sauce, sausage and cheese. And you can feel really good about yourself for stocking up on, nutrient powerhouse , kale.
Lets put it this way, Kale is as close to a superhero as a vegetable can get. It’s that powerful. And pretty in right now. Trader Joes can’t keep their bagged kale in stock.
