It's called Kale!! Sorry to disappoint, it's not a new pair of fancy shoes or beautiful dress.. Just Kale. But look at this beauty, it's purple! Lol.. I got so excited in the shop that bought three of these, we never know, the world might end tomorrow, so at least I want to have eaten enough of this because it's also delicious :)
On top of the deliciousness and the stunning looks, this guy is also a superfood and extremely nutritious.
This cruciferous leafy green vegetable is full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer nutrients.
Kale is a great source of vitamin K which contributes to healthy bones, quick and efficient wound healing and acts as an antioxidant.
It has also been shown to have cholesterol lowering effects and being a cruciferous vegetable it aids liver detoxification.
Do you need more convincing? Maybe my super delicious warm salad that I made with it..
Boil a sweet potato while you are chopping up the kale leaves, bell peppers, garlic, parsley, and little squares of tempeh. Fry the tempeh with your garlic in coconut oil until golden brown. In another pan, just lightly steam your kale and when everything is done, cut sweet potato into pieces, add everything together in one pan. Add creamed coconut, nutritional year, sea salt and pepper, mixed seeds - finito!
