Marinated Kale


Green leafy veggies like kale are almost impossible to overeat, the American Diabetes Association reports. Because kale is low in calories and rich in dietary fiber, it can assist in blood sugar and weight management. At only 2 Weight Watchers points, it makes a great side to any meal. Kale is a healthy addition to soups, salads, and stir fries. Wash kale before consuming it to remove any pesticide residues that may be present on the surface.

Serve this side as is, or add favourite salad vegs like carrot, tomatoes, cucumber, pea sprouts etc.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
