We hear a lot about the newest food fads in our line of work. Our clients and friends raise questions about sugar, certain diets, how a Google search told them this new superfruit does….whatever. There’s plenty of mixed information and conflicting opinions out there, but one thing is for sure: you just can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned salad.
We love kale. We put kale in everything we possibly can. It’s tasty in a saute, tasty in a salad, tasty anywhere. This leafy green is starting to get the attention it deserves for its high iron and calcium content, and today we’d like to celebrate the basic-most aspect of its versatility in salad form. Along with our superfood green, we have peppers, carrots, celery, tuna, egg and roasted almonds to contribute some protein, fiber, vitamins A and C, and omega-3 fatty acid. You can also enjoy our homemade dressing guilt-free, as usual.
Enjoy this hearty twist on a classic health food staple that won’t leave you hungry!
