cooked green beans (canned no less)

and a few others

I don't eat veggies...



I'm still trying...

kale mixed in a vanilla protein drink

with a cup of mixed berries

and some flax seed

it's a start...



Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday Kelley! I haven't tried Kale unless it is on a salad when I eat out. Who knows?

I hope you have a glorious birthday. You deserve it!

Fun giveaway!

Happy Birthday Kelley,Febuary is a great month for a birthday lots of good chocolate, which sounds so much better than Kale. If you do eat the kale don't get it off of the salad bar...there it is used as decoration.
I would love to be enterd in your birthday give away. My month is July.

Happy Birthday Kelley! I am a veggie person but I've not tried kale yet. Maybe the smoothie is the way to go! My birthday month is January. Not so sure that I need to be counting birthdays anymore. Too many candles now. Have a great day!

moosecraft said...

Happy Birthday to you! What kind of wool will it be? Some kale green wool? Some carrot orange wool? Or, some radish red wool.... mmmmm.... sounds like the perfect way to fit veggies into a creative diet! lol!

Lauralee @ The Eclectic Stitcher said...

Hoping you have the happiest of birthdays! My birth month is September so I've got a ways to go, but I don't mind because I don't count birthdays anymore ;o)

I've never tried kale before which is odd because I do like veggies (except for nasty lima beans, mashed potatoes, etc.) Will have to give it a go one day.

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

HAPPY B-DAY! I'm an Aries in March.

I get the veggie thing, but I do like kale (cut out the tough spine)in an Italian sausage soup, with onions, diced tomatoes, and white beans. Have also substituted chopped frozen spinach in place of the kale - didn't really notice any difference.

Have a happy --- jan

jonette said...

I love kale and would be glad to share recipes. Happy Birthday!
My month is October.

Dog Trot Farm said...

Happy, Happy, Birthday to you! I have a December birthday. I'm afraid the only way I have eaten kale was in a soup, however it was delicious! Birthday greetings from Maine, Julie.

Joanne said...

Hey there Kelley - Just popping in to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Have a wonderful day. Hmmm my birth month - guess! LOL

ihook2 said...

I'm a September

TheCrankyCrow said...

Happy, Happy, Birthday dear Kelley!! I would sing - but trust me, you'd rather I not! Hmmmm....a kale protein drink....Think I'll pass. I'm not a big veggie person either, but I do love kale in my Zuppa Toscana (a wonderful Italian soup)....Yummmm....(Why is it that I came to your blog to visit today and ended up ravenous between the soup and the no bake cookies???) ;o) Hope your day is filled with those and doing what you love best. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (My birthday is in March...in fact, the first day of spring...why do you think I got that wonderful name?) ;o

jody said...

Happy Birthday!
I love veggies, that has never been a problem for me.

Jessica @Blessings in the Country said...

Hi Kelley! Happy birthday!

I love most veggies. Hubby cooks some with bacon and that makes them even tastier (like uncooked spinach or brussel sprouts). I've been meaning to try "hiding" veggies in smoothies for the kids. The only veggie my son eats is carrots.

My birthday is in March!

Blessings,
Jessica

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Happy Happy Birthday to YOU!

Hope you have a lovely day today and I'd like to be included in your little surprise giveaway. Thanks so much!

My birthday is in December!

Nancy in MT said...

Kelley, Happy B. Day! I have the same problem with veggies, can only eat raw veggies unless it's corn, it's yellow, has something to do with colors. October is my month, have a great day.

Orange Sink said...

Happy Birthday Kelley! What a fun way to celebrate with a birthday give-away! I always think of kale as a decorative thing on a relish tray! I do like veggies and my dogs love lettuce and carrots! They come running when I'm washing the lettuce for a salad.

Ronnie said...

Good for you on the veggie issue.
I have Kale in my fridge, but haven't had the courage to do something with it yet.
Have a wonderful birthday!
My month is Oct.

woollylottrugs said...

Happy Happy Birthday to you Kelley girl. Greg and I love veggies, all kinds. I especially love kale in soup. Try it, maybe you'll like it that way.

Happy Birthday Kelly! Kale has certainly come to the forefront. I have had it in soup. Would like to try Kale chips. That sounds interesting.

Thank you for your birthday giveaway!

Happy Birthday! Kale is certainly becoming more popular--just had it in a salad today so I guess I got my antioxident fix for the day. ~Roberta

Happy Birthday to you. Hope you have an awesome day. I love most all veggies but haven't ever had kale. My favorite veggie is chocolate zucchini cake. That counts right!!

Some days veggies are all I eat. Steamed with a drizzle of butter. Yum.
Well, I might sneak in a Reese cup.
