RECIPE: Lemon and Kale Salad

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!”

    I make something similar to this, and it is VERY good! YUM! My kids are tired of roasted kale so I’ve taken to salads and such with it.

    Good on you! I stash it in soups, salads and on gourmet gluten-free pizza. Kale is not a trend. Highest ANDI score, and so versatile, what’s not to love?
