Happy National Kale Day! Celebrate with Kale with Chicken Sausage and Whole Grains

Today is the 2nd annual National Kale Day and I am proud to be an official Kale Ambassador!

I had a great time hosting a “pre-party” at the Foster City Library on Monday as part of my healthy cooking class series, The Doctor’s Spicebox.

Here is one of the dishes I developed for the class, a one pot meal of kale, turkey sausage and bulgur, one of my favorite whole grains. It went fast!
