An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Are you tired of Kale? You shouldn’t be because it’s a super packed, cancer fighting, health boosting wizard of foods!
Stuff it in your smoothie, your soups, your bubble bath—kidding, but you could probably make a kale salve; it is all the rage these days!
Here’s a kale salad I’m loving these days. The sunflower seeds are packed with vitamins and minerals that are anti-inflammatory, lower cholesterol and add protein to you salad, which will keep you full longer.
Enjoy. And tell your cells, “They’re Welcome!”
