Kale-Eating Dinosaurs

My kids aren’t perfect eaters. Levi isn’t into carrots or oranges (except satsuma mandarins). Charlotte doesn’t like eggs or most kinds of beans. Neither one would touch a salad. But when it comes to kale, raw kale straight off the plant, they can’t get enough of it.

They have this thing called dinosaur kale eaters, which is pretty much what it sounds like. They pretend they’re dinosaurs, and they attack their prey with lots of rabid, growly noises. It’s kinda awesome.

Love it! And what a beautiful family you have. After years of disliking kale, I’ve finally acquired a taste for it. I’m not sure I’m quite ready to chow it straight from the garden though….! I’m glad your kids are though – that’s amazing.

Wow, that kale is HUGE! I guess when you eat that much kale you really don’t need any other vegetables. I love it.

I love that. Liam is also not a fan of salad (except Caesar, heavy on the croutons), but then he’ll happily eat a huge bowl of palak paneer which is chock full of spinach and kale. He detests all summer squash, but he’ll eat raw carrots, peppers, and cucumbers–so I like to think it all evens out in the end.

This may well be the best post I’ve ever seen!
