Yields: 10 servings

Ingredients: 1-2 bunches of kale, olive oil, sea salt

  3. Place a little olive oil in a bowl, and brush a very light coat of oil over the kale.

Fibonacci, Nature's Code

The Fibonacci numbers are a mathematical code found throughout nature. This sequence appears everywhere in the natural world, from the pattern of petals on a flower, the arrangement of leaves of a tree, the spiral of a snail's shell, the shape of a hurricane and even the order of our entire galaxy. These numbers are proof that a mathematical order exists in the seeming randomness of the natural world.


The Fibonacci sequence was named after Leonardo of Pisa who was known as Fibonacci. Fibonacci's 1202 book Liber Abaci introduced the sequence to Western European mathematics. However, the origins of these numbers can be traced back to ancient Indian mathematics and the Sanskrit language. The Fibonacci series includes these numbers in the following sequence:

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144...and so on. The first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 0 and 1, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.

The human body exhibits Fibonacci numbers as well. Below are the proportions of the sections of a human finger that follow this sequence.

Other examples include the shape of the ear and even the building blocks of life, our DNA.

What does this all mean? Why is this sequence so important? It seems that in our world today, humanity has adopted the belief that we are separate from nature and that the natural world is ours for the taking. To me, this code represents a fundamental link between the human species and all living things on this planet and beyond. Not only are we NOT separate, we are connected in the deepest and most profound way possible.
