Warm Kale Saute

I just finished steaming a head of kale. Somedays I can easily eat a whole bowl without adding anything to it, however tonight I need to shake it up a little.

Kale and sesame is a great match so I thought I would try to make a sesame seed dressing. I took out my blender and put about a 1/2 cup of tahini (sesame seed butter - sesame seeds just ground up), a few squirts of Braggs (like a soy sauce without the wheat, salt and preservatives), some agave nectar (about 3 Tbsp), and blended it. It was a touch too thick so I added some water. It actually turned out quite nice and probably got close to my daily requirement of calcium if not more!!!

When Chris gets home, I'll just pour over the steamed kale and add a few sprinkles of sesame seeds!

Can't Win

Chris is starting to exercise. Chris is drinking more green and white tea and less coffee. Chris is generally overall moving in the right lifestyle direction.

Today, after two days of exercise, he is complaining of right upper quadrant pain. He thinks if he stops exercising and drinks more coffee, these problems (that he never had before) will disappear.
