One of my favourite salads is Kale and Quinoa not to mention it’s a superfoodie’s dream. Quinoa is something I eat regularly because of it high protein and fibre levels but also it is a slow releasing energy carbohydrate (low GI) making it a powerful energy food.
Kale is low in calories, high in fibre and has zero fat, it’s also filled with so many nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium making it a top shelve ‘superfood’, convinced yet?
Next time you do your groceries grab bunch of kale and try it out. Kale can have a bitter flavour so by gently squeezing/massaging the leaves makes them more tasteful. Add your favourite salad vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, grated carrot, shredded cabbage, avocado then add this creamy dressing for extra goodness and you are on your way to feeling great.
