      • Steam kale and peas. When I’m in a rush, a microwavable steamer works really well. I buy organic frozen peas, they’re are a great quick dinner staple.

Garlicky Kale Salad

After trying the Garlicky Kale Salad at Whole Foods, it became an obsession. It’s the kind of salad I could eat everyday. I had to recreate it. This similar recipe is fantastic. It’s simple to make, and can be made ahead of time since it’s recommended to let the leaves marinate. Aside from the amazing antioxidant benefits of kale, it is also rich in fiber.
