It's always better from the garden, they smell better and taste better
I dunno what it is, but I always love that smell of freshly picked tomatos
My family look at me like I'm a freak when I sniff them because I love that earthy tomato fresh-picked smell
^Waiting for these babies to ripen. But not too long or the deer'll get a free dinner. Usually the deer beat me to the tomatoes, so I never get to eat my hard work of harvest. :'(
My mom was a fitness instructor, so I have a very strong working knowledge of the rhyme and reason behind any workout by association and from my own education/knowledge seeking.
Sound like some smart thinking's going on there! Go for it!
I've never tried kale chips, but I LOVE Edamame steamed & lightly salted with sea salt!
Now you, my friend, have VERY good taste I'd invite you over for an edamame-eating contest, but alas, this is the interwebz and such liberties generally do not occur so easily...
Kale Chips = Kale + Sprinkling of Olive Oil + Salt + Some Pepper + Whatever herb you want (not too much of it, the first time i put so much paprika in my chips everyone in my house loved them but we fighting to get to the restrooms afterwards)
^It's yummy! Try it sometime.
