Embrace Kale (The Green Machine Vegetable)

Why should you embrace and eat more kale than a bunny?

-Kale has a 3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio, which is a very high source of protein.

-It contains 9 essential amino acids (amino acids are needed to make proteins in the body)

-Kale contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 (happy mood booster –omegas!)

-One3 cup of kale contains 10,000 IU of vitamin A (via beta-carotene source)

-I cup of kale contains 80mg of Vitamin C.

-Kale may also lower blood lipids, and help reduce glaucoma.

-It also tastes really good.

Here is a Kale Salad that is really tasty:

Kneaded Kale Salad

1 bunch of kale (yes the whole thing!!!)

4 tablespoons lemon juice

1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon of kosher salt

Add: almonds, goat or feta cheese, and or raspberries, mandarin oranages (or small amount of dried fruit of choice). Sprinkle chopped green onions on top and enjoy!

-strip the kale from the stem. Kneed the kale (like you were making bread with the olive oil and the lemon juice—caution if you have a cut on your hand!) in a salad bowl for 5 minutes. The longer the salad sits with the lemon juice and olive oil the more tender it will become! Enjoy!
