Kale is so good for you! Since kale can be a bit bitter it helps to sweeten it up a bit by adding fruit and some balsamic vinegar. 

At just 33 calories, one cup of raw kale has:

  • Nearly 3 grams of protein.
  • 2.5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full)
  • Vitamins A, C, and K.
  • Folate, a B vitamin that's key for brain development.
  • Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid.

Ingredients

1 bunch lacinato (a.k.a. dinosaur) kale, thick stems removed and leaves thinly sliced

1 cup sliced beets

2 navel oranges or Clementines, peeled and segmented

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced

1/3 cup sunflower seeds or nuts

1/4 cup cup Dijon mustard

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 1 small orange)

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
