kale, kale and more kale

Kale not only tastes pretty good but it also has LOADS of health benfits, it's known as a 'superfood' because it contains loads of beta-carotene, folic acid and vitamin C!! It's also really high in calcium, more than other veg! It also contains minerals such as iron, magnesium and potassium,....wow! im impressed already!

Kale is also rich in sulphur phytochemicals which can help protect against certain types of cancer and macular degeneration in your eyes!

Did you know?
Kale contains four times more magnesium and five times more calcium than Brussel sprouts
17 times more Vitamin C than carrots and four times more than spinach
Nearly double the magnesium of spring greens
More folate than broccoli
Seven times more carotene than cabbage

So normally i eat alot of brocolli and cabbage- but now I'm going to be eating a lot more KALE!

This is what i had for dinner yesterday:

1/2 Bag of kale
3 cloves of garlic crushed
2cm ginger sliced finely
1/2 chicken breast
2 tomatoes cubed
handful of basil

fry the diced chicken in water with garlic and ginger until cooked then in the last few mins add the kale, tomatoes and basil....and mix together! simple and soooo delicious!

I was so full after this, I didn't even eat all the chicken!
