Let’s talk about kale today – Gwyneth Paltrow wants to marry it and nutritionists cannot subscribe it enough. Both with a very good reason for it.
One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It is great for aiding in digestion with its great fiber content. It’s also filled with so many nutrients, vitamin A, K and C, folate, iron and magnesium. Kale is incredibly high in calcium, so all you dairy-intolerant, you need to be best friends with this leafy. Kale is best consumed raw, especially for this recipe, so it’s important to buy good organic kale. You don’t want to be putting nasties in your body.
Making a delicious massaged kale salad is very easy. The acid from the lemon juice and the salt help to break down the fibre of the vegetable, transforming tough, bitter leaves into a delicious, sweeter, softer and more easily digestible salad.
Once prepared the kale leaves keep well in a sealed container in the fridge, for amazingly up to one week. Just take out those leaves you need for a meal, add your favourite salad additions (see our suggestions below), and you are good to go.
