The perfect source of nutrients for cold winter days

Kale is probably by far the most hyped vegetable at the moment. Many times have I tried to turn this healthy legume into a nice salad, many times have I failed. You can already tell that kale is healthy because of its dark green colour and its strong taste. Generally speaking, the darker your leafy greens, the better it is for you.
I tried countless recipes demanding only for lemon juice and, at most, adding oil and salt. But then I had an idea, why not combine the most amazing dip in the world aka guacamole with raw, not so great tasting kale? Guacamole makes anything taste better, right?

And damn was I right.

May I introduce you my new favourite salad.
Kale salad with guacamole. And sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and pine nuts. But I would honestly only subscribe to the sunflower seeds combi.

Good to know

Kale is rightly hyped by pretty much every food or lifestyle Instagrammer as it’s high in iron, calcium, vitamin A, C, K, and much more. Moreover, it is a great source of plant-based protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

Something personal for a change

If you are not interested in behind-foodcreating news you should skip this paragraph and head straight for the recipe.
I have the privilege of attending a blogger workshop by Luisa Lion who runs the blog Style-Roulette. The workshop is this Sunday which means I will be able to tell you more about it next week, provided you are interested.

   

Question:

Is a bouquet of kale too much?
Keeping in mind that it looks really nice, healthy, and fresh. Besides, soaking the stems in water is my secret to keeping kale fresh for a long time.
