Make the most of your workout!
Kale is probably one of my most favorite greens. Though more bitter than spinach (my other fav green), its high volume of Vitamin K, A, and E are what get me really excited about this cancer fighting cruciferous veggie. Low in calories and high in Omega 3 and fiber, this is one lean mean green!
How you prepare kale is up to you. Of course steaming or including raw in a smoothie are the best ways to maintain a super healthy addition to your diet, but if you need to flavor up, here are some great ways to make kale:
1. Kale Chips: Cut the leaves into chip sized pieces. Place on a cookie sheet, spray with spray olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake on 500 for 8-10 minutes.
2. Sautéed lemon kale: Trim kale into strips. Heat 1 tsp olive oil + a sprinkle of brown sugar and juice from 1/2 lemon. Sautee kale until wilted.
3. As an ingredient: Try adding kale to your egg fritatas, or salads- anywhere you’d use a green leaf like spinach.
