We can’t get enough of these Mexican flavours in our house: honestly, we cook a Mexican meal nearly once a week. This is a super healthy and filling kale salad that incorporates the Super Food kale into the mix to give it a bit more texture, fibre and vitamins. In addition to only having 33 calories per cup, kale is rich in lutein and xeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts.
