  3. I am a massage therapist, and since I heard about this technique and found your recipe–the easiest and most flexible–kale has become a regular “client” of mine.
    I add apples and carrots along with walnuts, and have also tried raisins, a little curried sweet potato and pumpkin seeds, roasted.
