Went to The Grove yesterday to see all the costumes on display from season 4 of The Mindy Project. The costumes that Salvador Perez creates for Mindy Kaling are stunning. They are like works of art with such wonderful colors,patterns, and textures. If you live in Los Angeles or near Los Angeles you should go check out all the pieces on display. 

Happy National Kale Day.

aka.. An American Kale

Ingredients:

kale, cucumber, carrot, beets, apple, turmeric, lemon, card stock, poster paper, construction paper, sharpie marker, face paint, elastic, rain poncho, cardboard, marshmallows

Recipe: 

  • 2 handfuls kale
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 beet, peeled and chopped
  • ½ apple, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon organic turmeric powder, or 1-2" piece of turmeric root, peeled and chopped**
  • ½ lemon, squeezed

Because somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight– someone is eating kale. 

** I recommend starting off with less turmeric (a mouse-like portion, let’s say) and adding more to taste. If you add too much, it can make the juice very bitter. Turmeric has many benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties. Pairing it with less tart ingredients can help balance it out.
