For The Kale Of It!

“Kale Yeh!” This recipe is easy and delicious. Yes, Kale is everywhere now, but it is sooooo good for you.  

This recipe came from a Whole Foods cooking class I attended. It’s my go-to salad to take when asked to bring a dish to share.  I’m assured a vegan meal and others will enjoy it too.

Kale is low in calories, high in fiber, and has zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. Per calorie kale has more iron than beef. (Say what beef eaters?!) It’s high in Vitamin C, A, K and calcium. It aids in digestion, is filled with powerful antioxidants and a great anti-inflammatory food.

The 4 easy steps to a “Kale Yeh” salad:

Step 1    Take a head of organic kale and cut into julienne strips and place in large bowl.

Step 2 Add a tablespoon or two of extra virgin cold pressed olive oil, juice from a fresh lemon and himalayan salt.

Step 3 Massage til wilted.

Step 4 Add your favorite toppings like: Cranberries, pumpkin seeds, fresh cut up apples, avocado, pomegranate seeds, edamame. Enjoy!

Step 5    Floss. Unless it is Halloween.

So what are you waiting for? Try it and let me know if it’s “Kale Yeh” or “Kale No” for you!
