If some one had told me 5 years ago I would be eating kale at all I would have called them crazy.
Kale of which there are many kinds is a super food. At least that’s what I’ve read. The leaves don’t come with a label!
But kale is a super food, a nutritional powerhouse and one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. Some claim kale is the new beef! Low in calories and high in fiber, high in iron (more iron per calorie than beef), full with antioxidants, high in calcium – more calcium per calorie than milk.
Plus high in vitamins A, C, and K, and a great anti-inflammatory food, and supports a healthy heart. It’s also a great detox food to help flush out toxins from the body and keep the liver healthy and functioning well.
My wife and I go through a big bunch of kale every week when it’s in season – a winter crop. We have a dehydrator and have made kale chips but not everyone does. So this recipe from EcoSalon shows you how to make some healthy kale chips. I know it sounds weird… but try some.
Pssst…. our secret ingredient(s) is blending cashews with some nutritional yeast.
