Kale and Kale Smoothies
All must bend the knee to King Kale! If it sounds like nutritional experts extol the virtues of this leafy green to the point of nausea, it’s for many positive reasons. For only 33 tiny calories, you get a ton of protein and nutrients from this superfood.
The problem with kale is that it tastes bitter, which some folks seek to remedy by mixing it into a smoothie. The problem is, this green is so rich in phytonutrients, the resulting beverage always resembles pond scum, even if you blend in strawberries and almond milk.
If you can’t tolerate downing something from that portion of the rainbow, try adding a few leaves of kale to your wrap or sandwich. The other flavors will mask the taste. All you’ll enjoy is the crunch and nutrition.
