Kale wins!

Amy and I went to our weekly visit to the Children's musuem. We couldn't resist putting the girls in their matching "Mimi" outfits! I like all of the fake trees inside the museum!

"How does your garden grow?"

Baby Bee has grown so fast! When I first started taking Bee to the museum she could only look!

Kale is my favorite!
Question? What is Kale?
Answer! A dark leafy green vegetable!
Bonus!!! It is one of the best vegetables for you!
How: I like to eat it raw, steamed, sauteed, juiced, and dehydrated. But my favorite...
My friend Amy's own "Kale Chips!"
Her Kale Chips are dehydrated with maintains the ability to call it "raw" and coated with one of the amazing sauces that she has perfected!

Kale info from wikipedia.org

Nutritional value

Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties; kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory.[2]

Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Because of its high vitamin K content, patients taking anti-coagulants such as warfarin are encouraged to avoid this food since it increases the vitamin K concentration in the blood, which is what the drugs are often attempting to lower.

Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties.[3]

Here is Bee trying the "Kid Kale" for the first time! She loves it! It tastes like yummy cheesy junk food and it is totally good for you and it's vegan and raw!
Amy has her kale chips in many healthfood and other specialty shops around Brooklyn and Manhattan and she just started selling on Etsy. You can now get them delivered to your door! Check it out!
Bee and I went and got a tour of Amy's new Kale Chip factory/Art Studio. Currently the kale chips are still being made at their New York Naturals Health food store in Park Slope. The factory is only a few blocks away from my house!

Oh So Cute! Love the twin outfits! Looks like a great place for the girls to play in Amy's new place. It is nice that Bee has a great BFF and all the other kids her age to hang with. Thanks for the update!
Happy Bee-day for Bee's 15 monther today!
