In promoting and thoroughly enjoying a healthy lifestyle...By Limor, there are a few things I absolutely love to use in my cooking as you have noticed and kale is definitely at the top of the list.
Kale can come in all shapes and forms depending on your cooking preference but no matter how you make it and eat it, it is inevitable that it will remain to do wonders for your body. Kale is super low in calories but stays high in fiber. It contains iron, vitamin K, A, C, antioxidants, calcium, and amazing for the heart. Ever wanted a great detox solution? Well kale is that solution because of its fiber and sulfur properties. MindBodyGreen has an amazing detailed outline of why kale is the new “queen of greens.”
One example of how I use kale is by incorporating it with meatballs:
I take kale and saute it with onions and whole hummus. Once that’s off the pan, I mix it into organic tomato sauce. While that marinates, I make my own veal meet balls. All you need it ground veal mixed with parsley, shredded onions, garlic, Celtic salt, and ground pepper. I take that mix and form them into nickel sized meatballs. These meatballs are baked instead of fried. Pop them into the oven at 350 Fahrenheit until they are cooked all the way through. Once they’re done, drop them into your kale and tomato sauce and serve!
