Kale is one of my fav foods in the world! This isn’t just because it’s a bonafide superfood, but it’s also because this green is hardy and blasting with flavor. Kale is a great addition to ANY smoothie or salad. “All hail to kale!”
– Is anti-inflammatory, low cal, has antioxidants, and is low carb.
– Contains vitamins E, C, and A, as well as calcium and potassium.
– Has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk, and even more vitamin C than spinach!
– Good for the eyes, teeth, reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer, lowers cholesterol, strengthens bones, and aids weight loss.
Kale’s best friend? Lemon, which enhances phytonutrients.
Hence my frequent kale based salads, dressed with freshly squeezed lemon juice and EVOO, as well as my love for kale based smoothies.
So eat your superfoods! Much love 🙂
