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.
