Kale Superfood or Just Awesome?

on March 27, 2013

OK if you’ve been around my Facebook page for a while you might have noticed I <3 Kale……a lot.  The great thing about Kale is it’s one of THE healthiest veggies around.  With fiber, iron, Vitamins K, A, C, calcium and antioxidants.  This SUPER veggie is no joke!


It’s pretty and oh so green!  🙂

So Now that we know its good for us you might be wondering what you can do with it?

Good question.

Since I was looking for a few new ideas myself, I asked some fellow Sweat Pink and Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors for their favorite Kale recipes. I decided these were just too good not to share, so here we go.  Click on the recipie name for complete details and let the ladies know Run Find your Happy Pace sent you!

Oh and here is my favorite simple Kale recipe:

Kale with Garlic

1 Tbsp of Olive Oil

Huge bunch of Kale

2-4 garlic cloves

heat pan, saute the garlic, add the Kale and cook until the consistency you prefer.  (I like mine slightly wilted with still a bit of crunch to it.)  I have used the finished product as a side dish and as an addition to soup.  As a stand alone it’s a quick and healthy snack too.

Additional Recipes from my buds

Heather over at Run Stylish – Kale and Quinoa Pilaf.…umm yum!  This includes many of my favorite things, Kale, quinoa and feta.  Oh my, so good.

From Better Believe Fit – Astrid gave me this simple and delish and Paleo friendly idea.

“I like mine wilted with a little coconut oil and sea salt. Its simple and whole30/Paleo friendly ” Astrid   *** I tried it, its good 🙂

From Jen over at Marathon Mom – Kale and Black Bean Quesadillas – ok this is going on my must try list ASAP!

and From Debbie over at Healthy Running Mom – Chickpeas and Kale…oh man, oh man 🙂

Thanks ladies for the delish ideas.

And so I have come to the conclusion that Kale is not only a superfood but also awesome.

 So get out there are eat this Super Green and let me know what you think.
