Kale or borecole is rich in numerous health benefits. It is very versatile and nutritious green leafy vegetable. It is a widely popular vegetable and is known for its low fat, no cholesterol but health benefiting anti-oxidant properties. As part of my eating “Lean and Clean for 2013”, Kale has become a major vegetable pantry item in my household. This recipe lightly steams the Kale which keeps its healthy benefits in tack without over cooking which will remove the healthy benefits/nutrients.
1Bring about 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan over high heat to a rolling boil.
2Add kale, cover and cook for about 3 – 5 minutes or until kale is tender and bright green, then remove from heat; let stand for about 2 – 3 minutes.
3Drain kale and place in a large bowl. Add lemon pepper seasoning, lemon juice, and olive oil. Toss gently, season with salt to taste and garnish with lemon zest.
4It’s all about Himalayan Pink Salt – Health, Therapeutic, and Cooking
Himalayan pink salt's natural minerals make it the preferred choice of chefs, spas and health professionals who promote the holistic lifestyle. Adding Himalayan salt to your regular diet can provide essential minerals and support proper absorption of nutrients. It can also normalize blood pressure; eliminate toxins and help balance the body's electrolytes and pH levels.
Himalayan pink salt can be used to create a brine bath, which can help strengthen the immune system, detoxify your body and heal skin diseases. Soaking in brine baths after surgery can also assist in quicker healing and recovery. Facial steams help minimize asthma and bronchitis symptoms, as well as ear infections and some respiratory tract infections. Soak a cloth in a brine solution of the Himalayan pink salt and use for open wounds or for joint conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis or gout.
Due to its higher mineral content, Himalayan pink salt can be used to replace regular table or sea salt to support a healthy lifestyle. Use it in the kitchen anywhere regular table salt is called for. Multiple grind choices are available, including fine, medium and rock. Finely ground can be used in regular salt shakers, while the larger pieces can be ground in a mill. It provides a richer flavor than table or sea salt and does not contain additional chemicals or additives. Himalayan salt is easier for the body to digest, and its high mineral content provides more nutrients, encouraging better health.
