Kale is an incredible beauty superfood that is one of my personal favorites. It is packed with phytochemicals, fiber and chloropyll, a major blood builder. The cleaner the blood the more beautiful we are. It’s what I use in my Dharma’s Kale Salad Recipe.
Instead of cooking it, it can be tenderized with lemon and other dressing ingredients and made into a salad. I eat this hearty, delicious salad for part of dinner at least several nights a week. This incredible salad provides a substantial mix of protein-building amino acids, enzymes, minerals (including important ones found in sea vegetables), and antioxidants.
