I normally eat too much at Thanksgiving, so much that I don’t feel well.  The food looks delicious and beautifully prepared so I fill a plate to capacity.  It’s not a good idea.  My mother taught me as a child to eat my food and think of the starving kids in Africa…and I feel obliged to finish my too much food.  After a weekend of indulgence, my body is not happy.  I started looking for a way to ease myself out of the food funk with a healthy meal.  My friend, Alison Murphy, had just the recipe.  She is a health and wellness enthusiast and embraces healthy living.  Alison is a real nutritional guru on top of being a gorgeous former model.  Life is not fair.  She came up with a Tuscan Kale Dish that is amazing and healthy. It’s a great way to eat right after a holiday meal.

Kale Salad!
                               
Kale is a “super food.”  Nutrition website aliveraw.com writes kale is “rich in calcium, lutein, iron, beta-carotene, and Vitamins A, C, and K. A single serving of Kale provides 192 percent of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin A.”  Also, “Kale contains over 45 different flavonoids which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.  Research has also shown Kale to be effective in helping lower cholesterol levels and as a detoxifier. One of kale’s phytochemicals, sulforaphane, helps the body’s detoxification enzymes clear potentially carcinogenic substances out of your system.”  So kale is great for detoxing the system after heavy meals and extremely beneficial.  Thanks aliveraw.com!

Alison’s Tuscan Kale recipe is delicious because Tuscan Kale is sweeter than standard kale.  She also combines the kale with avocado, another super food.  Along with a few other ingredients, the dish is delicious.  It is simple and quick to make and you will feel good about being good to your body.
