Yes, I call it fuel. You can call them Scooby Snacks or Tasty Bits or whatever you like. Because I like to think of myself as a Mack Truck, I choose to use the word fuel. The Amazing Energy Bars have gotten me thinking. Dan makes these bars because he likes "real food" while he's riding, which is a noble pursuit. Last Saturday on our way back from Colossal Cave Mountain Park we stopped at a Farmer's Market and bought some homemade bars that feature chia seeds (which you might recall I'm recently obsessed with). The chia bars, called Mia Chia, taste delicious, but I haven't been able to test them on the bike yet.
Super easy, stupid-simple and seriously savory. This is going to become a regular snack around here for sure. As scary-good as kale is for your health, you should give it a shot, too. You may even be able to convert some non-believers. Thanks to Patrick and Michael for the roasting tip! There were a few other recipes mentioned that I plan to try in the next few weeks. Stay tuned, Kale Komandos.
I love kale. There, I said it. But I know that not everyone gets as into dinosaur food as I do. Usually, I just chop it, steam it, salt it and eat it, but tonight I decided to put a little effort in and see if I could make it palatable for Sal. It worked. This is simple - and would be great for spinach or chard or other leafy greens, too - but I swear it's good. Sal-tested, Sicilian-approved.
