“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t. You’re right. – Henry Ford

Did you know?
– Kale tastes best when harvested after a good frost or after it has wintered over, which allows the starches to turn to sugar *
– studies show a positive link between potassium and bone health. By eating foods rich in potassium you may prevent osteoporosis *
– the body needs vitamin C to heal wounds, support the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and support the immune system *
– that almonds contain the aminoacid arginine, which inhibits tumor growth and promotes immunity and hormone function *
Healthy Recipe using Kale
Crazy Simple Raw Kale salad:
1 head of curly green kale, washed, dried and stems removed
For the dressing:
1/2 cup (120 ml) raw or regular natural smooth almond butter
1/2 cup (120 ml) water
2 Tbsp (30 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice (about one lime)
1-2 cloves garlic, minced, to your taste
about 1/2 inch (1.5 cm) piece ginger, peeled and minced
1/4 tsp (1.5 ml) red chilli flakes or some chopped fresh chilli/red pepper
2 Tbsp (30 ml) sesame seeds, raw or lightly toasted
Finely chop the kale and place in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients except for sesame seeds. Pour the mixture over the kale and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve. Makes 4-6 side servings or 2 main course servings. (I love kale and use it in stir frys too)
