Kale: The IT Green

Kale has been all the rage for the last year, as if it was just discovered.  Kale is amazingly good for you and does deserve all the hype.  It’s a “Superfood”, packed with antioxidants and nutrients, including vitamins A, C & K. It’s so good for you, if you haven’t already, you should jump on the bandwagon! Here is my favorite way to incorporate this it green into my diet. 

Berry Kale Smoothie
1 packed cup of kale (removed middle rib from kale leaves)
1/2 orange, juiced
1 cup frozen berries (I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries & blackberries)
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup of nonfat plain yogurt
1 tsp honey

Pack it all in a blender & blend until smooth! Enjoy
