I know what you’re thinking, “kale… really?”. Well, don’t go too far because this kale recipe is a spin on your basic sloppy kale. It is filled with crunch, sweetness and a slight cheesy flavor. Not to mention the fact that is is FILLED with nutrients. Did you know that kale is one of the most nutrition foods you can eat? Just 1 cup gives you above and beyond the DRI of vitamins A and C. Don’t even get me started on the amount of vitamin K it contains, it’s astronomical and it seriously blows my mind (I’m a food nerd guys). Vitamin K is a friend to vitamin D and calcium, you know, those 2 extremely important nutrients our bones love.

Kale is an anti-inflammatory food that is filled with antioxidants, phytonutrients and cancer fighting compounds. It is also an wonderful source or plant protein and lutein which keeps your eyeballs young and healthy. You can throw kale into soup, stir fry, chili & smoothies
