You know, when you have a family, dinner becomes less about you and what you like and more about them and what they like. Maybe not even so much what they like, but what they will eat.
Yes, I make some sacrifices at dinner time. Most of the time, I choose the foods my family likes and prepare those foods the way they prefer to eat them. The more family members you have, the more dinner becomes a dance, finding the foods that will make everybody happy.
Lunch time, though, is a whole different story. Lunch time is where I get to shine! Lunch time is where I get to eat whatever in the world I want prepared however in the world I want and think only about if one person will like it: me.
What you see today is one of my very favorite lunchtime meals. It could also be a beautiful breakfast, but I usually eat it at lunch time. It’s a very simple presentation of kale and there’s really nothing over-the-top different about this standard recipe.
I share it because despite its simplicity of ingredients the flavors are outstanding and this is a meal that keeps me satisfied for a long time. I also want to encourage those of you who haven’t tried sautéed kale to give it a whirl. I think you’ll be surprised at how much you like it. Paired with runny eggs, it’s perfection.
I probably don’t have to tell you how healthy kale is, but I will anyway. It’s packed full of vitamins and nutrients that will keep your body working the way it should. Want a list? Here’s what you’ll find in kale: vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, fiber, calcium, potassium, vitamin B2, vitamin E, iron, magnesium, vitamin B1, omega 3 fats, phosphorus, protein, folate, and vitamin B3. These are just the nutrients in which kale is a good, very good, or excellent source. (source)
If you’re not already eating a lot of kale (or other leafy greens), here’s your chance to get six servings in one sitting. Do it.Print
