Read a great article tonight in The New York Times Magazine all about kale. Read more….
Yep kale is all the rage, has been for a while now.
Most people I know love it but there are a few, very few that do not, and still fewer that have never heard of it.
Over the last 4 years I have turned many a client, adult as well as kid, on to kale with my Marinated Kale Salad, Baked Kale Chips and my Kale, Sausage and Quinoa Casserole but here’s the great thing….
Not only is kale delicious but kale is incredibly good for you. That’s a twofer…..
It aids in digestion, boosts your immune systems, it’s high in calcium, vitamin A, C and K, high in antioxidants and is a super detox food.
Wow so let me get this straight…you can eat something you love and…and…it makes you healthier? No sacrificing taste to eat healthy? No way right?
I have made it the mission of my business to create, share and promote healthy delicious food as a way by which to help my clients improve and maintain good health for the rest of their lives.
Finding out the correct food for your health issue and eating that food can, reduce your risk for heart disease (and we no longer mean a low fat diet), reverse diabetes, lessen symptoms of menopause, slow down and even reverse signs of aging, reduce symptoms of arthritis, improve symptoms of auto immune diseases, reduce or eliminate digestive issues like IBS, colitis, diverticulitis, gas and bloating, boost your immune system, fight cancer – do I need to go on here?
Many of my readers and all of my clients know the power food has to improve and even eliminate their health issues. All this with no side affects and no big price tag.
But what is good health if you have to eat crappy tasting food that you hate…I’d call that torture!
I will be making available special editions of The Simple Solution dedicated to health issues that are common in middle-aged women (and probably a lot of men too). We will have editions dedicated to diabetes, a nationwide epidemic that has a strong food base, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, aging, menopause, boosting your immune system, sleep issues, memory and depression.
Each low-cost mini-cookbook issue will address a specific health problem and give you lifestyle change suggestions and easy recipes that will have you loving the food you need to eat get improve or even eliminate the health issue you are experiencing.
If this type of information interests you, please go one over to my website and sign-up for my newsletter. Sent bi-weekly my newsletter will provide details as to The Simple Solution Issues available as well as program offerings and private health coaching information.
If you are looking for additional resources or assistance with a health issue that has you concerned please contact me at MindyKannon@yahoo.com.
And always remember You Deserve to be Healthy!
Shouldn’t you be eating some kale!
Marinated Kale Salad with Avocado, Almonds, Apples and Raisins
1 bunch of kale – stems removed and coarsely chopped
1 ripe avocado, diced
salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 clove garlic
3 tsp of apple cider vinegar
1 carrot, peeled and sliced into half moons.
1 small sweet, crisp apple, sliced thin
1 scallion, green part only, thinly sliced
½ c raisins
1 large handful of toasted almonds
Sprinkle of Seaweed Gomasio
Place the kale in a large bowl with the avocado. Gently massage avocado and kale together for about 3 minutes. The kale will shrink and become darker and more pliable. Pour on apple cider vinegar and let sit for 15 minutes.
Reserve a small handful of carrots and apple slices for garnish and then gently fold into the kale mixture.
Divide the salad among four plates. Top each plate with the sliced carrots, apples, raisins and scallions. Scatter the almonds on top.
Generously sprinkle Gomasio to taste
Salad can keep for a few days in the refrigerator.
