The Great Kale Crisis

Health nuts, hipsters and foodies, rest a little easy: our so-called “kale shortage” may not be a shortage after all. According to NBC News, the rumored kale deficit is not as dramatic as it was made out to be. While Bejo Seeds, a major Australian-based kale supplier reported a shortage of seeds and “very, very tight” supply, the U.S. has not fallen victim to the lack of inventory… yet. Since 2007, the amount of kale grown in the U.S. has risen by 57%, and while we know how much you love kale in pasta, stir-fry, pesto and chips, there are plenty of other ways to get your fix of greens without putting this delectable leaf in danger. The next time you’re craving kale, try spinach or Swiss chard instead:

Cheesy Baked Spinach and Egg Whites with Bread and Fruit

 

Tingly Chicken & Greens Noodle Bowls

 

Farro Spaghetti with Buttery Tomato Sauce & Farm Spinach

Meatless Monday: Groovy Garbanzos!

On Meatless Monday, we know how important it is to get your protein fix at lunch so you can stay full and energized until the end of the day. One of the easiest, most versatile and delicious ways to do that is with garbanzo beans, or as many people know them, chickpeas! Chickpeas are jam-packed with protein and fiber and are super versatile — blend ‘em smooth, form them into patties or leave them whole. Plus, their neutral taste can easily pick up any combination of flavors and spices. And while we adore ’em in hummus, we had to recommend a few more creative takes on chickpeas, too!
