A crowd pleasing recipe that has great flavor. The simple salad dressing is made with only 4 ingredients that you may already have in your pantry! Massaging the kale is the most important step to help break down the kale leaves for a texture that isn’t difficult to chew. Check out the produce index for additional information!
This dish contains kale, a low-calorie anti-inflammatory with nutrients that can help a baby’s development during pregnancy, reduce constipation, keep bones strong and protect and repair body cells. Additionally, it contains many other nutrients including fiber (helps keep our hearts healthy and helps reduce constipation), calcium (important for strong bones and teeth, as well as keeping your muscles, heart and nerves healthy), folate (important for brain development and function and helps prevent birth defects early in pregnancy), potassium (keeps our muscles healthy, especially our heart and can help reduce high blood pressure) and iron (helps deliver oxygen through our body to give us energy, which is especially important for pregnant women and children because of the growth that occurs during those stages). This meal is also low in sodium, which our bodies don’t need much of but we tend to get in a lot of packaged/processed foods. Diets higher in sodium can be a risk for high blood pressure which is unhealthy for our heart. Low sodium foods have under 140mg of sodium in a serving and it’s recommended for most people to get under 2300mg in a day total.
