WHY KALE IS SO AWESOME! Share | Like | Comment l Repost http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rawforvitality/177654739026014 Did you know? Per calorie kale has more calcium than milk and more iron than beef (though you won’t hear that from the dairy or meat industry). In addition: --1 cup of kale has 3 ½ times your daily beta-carotene needs and plenty of vitamin C to help boost that gorgeous glow. --Kale also contains a host of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory flavonols, such as quercetin, to help defend your body from the stresses of modern life. --Kale provides a dietary source of alpha-lipoic acid, which helps regenerate other anti-oxidants like vitamin C and Glutathione. --Kale’s fibre supports a healthy digestive tract to help keep digestion-related inflammation at bay. --Sulfur-based glucosinolates in kale help to support the natural detoxification pathways in the liver. Put kale in a salad, in a green smoothie, or eat it as a simple, healthy alternative to movie popcorn! :) That's what I like to do! Kale chips are another GREAT way to incorporate this lovely green into your diet: Recipe for Kale Chips Ingredients 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried 2 tablespoons olive oil Sea salt, for sprinkling Directions Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a tex-flex sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Dehydrate overnight (about 8 hrs) or until crisp. Turn the leaves over and dehydrate for 1-2 more hours. Serve as finger food. http://www.dailyperricone.com/2012/04/5-facts-on-kale/ http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/melissa-darabian/crispy-kale-chips-recipe/index.html Via:Email Curly kale – pic source: Rasbak.

From the Blender: Date, Tahini, and Cardamom Smoothie

Lately, ripe bananas have been getting on my nerves.
