My Kale Power Salad

Kale is packed with nutrition! Don’t let the thicker “lettuce” texture turn you off! Kale is full of antioxidants and phytochemicals (cancer fighting heros)! Kale also contains sulfur and sulforaphane….try saying that 5 times fast ;)…these two work together to boost the body’s ability to detox. Kale is rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A, C, and K…plus 4 g protein and 3 g fiber per serving!

Kale can be prepped several different ways…cooked, raw or even baked! So versatile I know! 🙂

This Kale Power Salad is my new favorite. It keeps me full and keeps my mouth happy ;)!

  • 3 cup cleaned chopped Kale (make sure to remove the thick steams that run along the leaf)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper (more if desired)
  • 1/2 tsp Pink Sea Salt

  2. Sprinkle garlic powder, basil, pepper, and salt on top of veggies

  1. Good morning Jessica,

    I’m very bummed…but I think I am going to have to skip boot camp tonight ☹ I have a 5:30pm meetings I have to attend, and now that school is back in session, in my wildest dreams I couldn’t make it home in time if I leave after 6pm! Hope you have a good class and will miss you ☺

    See you Thursday!
