Today is gloomy and rainy in LA, so it’s the perfect day to post this pressure cooker Tuscan White Bean Kale Soup. Topped it off with some Parmesan for some saltiness, but without it, the recipe is completely vegan! Recipe can be found on the @mealthy website, and the link is in my bio!
⏩ WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE VEGETABLES❔⏪⏩ COMMENT BELOW❕
👉 Here are in my opinion the HEALTHIEST VEGETABLES you can consume with my favorite the KING BROCCOLI! 😉 The best known members of the cruciferous family of vegetables are bok choy, broccoli, broccoli sprouts, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, radishes, turnips, and watercress. Cruciferous vegetables are considered to be a good source of antioxidants and may be able to activate a key receptor on our intestinal immune cells that helps fight pathogens and toxins. Cruciferous vegetables may boost our liver’s detoxifying enzymes, an effect that can last for weeks.
The Harvard Nurse’s study reported that high consumption of cruciferous and green leafy vegetables were related to less cognitive decline. Cruciferous vegetables are considered one of the top two vegetable families that appear to aid cancer prevention (along with allium family vegetables like garlic and onions). Cruciferous vegetable intake appears to be linked to reduced risk of prostate cancer progression, breast cancer recurrence, and bladder cancer . Broccoli may help reduce the spread of lung cancer cells. Sulforaphane, a dietary component of cruciferous vegetables, may inhibit breast cancer stem cells. 🙏🌱
👉 HOW TO PREPARE THEM ?
How you prepare cruciferous vegetables may affect the health impact. For example, kale may be more beneficial cooked than raw. When cooking cruciferous vegetables, to maximize levels of sulforaphane (which may protect our brain and eyesight, protect against free radicals, induce our detoxification enzymes, and help to prevent and even treat cancer), it is recommended to either pre-chop the vegetables at least 40 minutes ahead of cooking or add a pinch of mustard powder during the cooking process. *source:

48 hours without any added sugars or naturally high sugar foods was actually so much harder than I thought it would be!
Not because I’m addicted to sugar, not because I get strong cravings, just because I’m so used to eating whatever I want. I usually don’t think twice about a splash of maple syrup in my coffee or a fruit smoothie before my workout. Telling myself I couldn’t have sugar made me want sugar more than ever!! Isn’t that wild?
I did get creative with new breakfast ideas like chickpea scramble and this quinoa avocado bowl with hot sauce. But I also can’t wait for my pre-workout smoothie later today with lots of fruit. 😍
Have you ever tried cutting something out only to find that you start thinking about it constantly??

Okay y’all know I love a good kale salad. But when you add Olive Oil & Herb Turkey Cutlets and Caesar Tahini dressing, you just can’t go wrong. I partnered up with @greatamericanturkeyco for this recipe and I got the turkey cutlets at @thefreshmarket. This recipe will be featured in the Great American Turkey Co 2019 Clean Eats Cookbook.

Your favorite recipe is back and better than ever to celebrate my first day of work! I picked up some Nature’s Greens kale (in the Palmetto Gardens bag) grown by WP Rawl at @publix after my 10K this weekend and made these amazing beauties. This time I added sauteed kale and it was game changing. Check out the recipe below 🔥 #NaturesGreensPartner
- 1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
- 2 tbsp butter or vegan butter
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup hot sauce (depending how hot you like it)
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 2 handfuls @naturesgreens kale
- 1/2 avocado, diced into chunks
- 2 tortillas (I used Siete almond flour kind)
- Dressing of choice
1. Preheat oven to 400F. Cut cauliflower into desirable sized florets. Place on oven sheet, cover in garlic powder to taste, and bake for 25 min.
2. While cauliflower cooks, melt the butter for 15 sec in microwave. Mix in the additional garlic powder and hot sauce. Stir to combine and set aside.
3. Place 1 tsp olive oil in pan over low-medium heat. Sautee kale until crispy, about 5-10 min.
4. Take cauliflower out of oven and coat in buffalo sauce mixture. Place back in oven for additional 10-15 min.
5. Heat up tortillas. Place kale and avocado chunks. Take cauliflower out of oven and place in tortillas as well. Top with dressing and any additional desired spices.
Kale sebzesinin faydalarını anlatmaya instagramın müsade ettiği sözcük sayısı yetmedi, eksik kalmasın, tamamlayayım, bir de bir önceki kale paylaşımımdaki domates eleştirilerine yanıt vereyim...Sebze ve meyvelerin en sağlıklı zamanı tabiattaki mevsiminde doğal ortamda yetişenleridir, bunu yıllardır savunuyorum zaten, ve kendi evime de kışın domates salatalık almam, ancak paylaşımdaki domates Adana'daki seralardan, masum bir kaçamak aslında... Çok sağlıklı koşullarda sera üretimi yapan emektar firmalar var ülkemizde, gdo yerine tozlaşmada arı kullanan, dünyanın en güvenli organik sertifikalarını alabilen firmaların ürünlerini 'arada bir' tüketmekte bence sakınca yok, hep söylüyorum ya, bu sağlıklı beslenme akımını 'sağlıklı beslenme terörü' haline getirmemek lazım...
Kale sebzesinin faydalarına gelince, yapılan hücre deneyleri, sebzenin bolca içerdiği glukosinolatların hücre seviyesinde 'detoks' yaptığını gösteriyor, DNA koruyucu etkisi de buradan geliyor ki DNA koruyucu etki demek, kanserden korunma demek... Sebzenin kanserle savaşçı gücü bununla sınırlı değil, içerdiği reçinemsi maddeler birçok kanserojen maddeyi bağırsakta bağlayıp kana karışmasını engelliyor. Bu kadar da değil, Journal of Molecular Cancer'da yayınlanan bir çalışmada sülforafan glukosinolatların yumurtalık kanseri hücrelerinin üremelerini baskıladığı gösterildi, sadece bu kanser türü değil, mesane, meme, kalın bağırsak ve prostat kanseri hücrelerine karşı da benzer etkinin olduğuna bilimsel yayınlarda yer verildi. Kale sebzesinde bunların yanısıra lutein, kaemferol, quersetin ve indol-3-karbinol adlı kanser savaşçısı fitokimyasallar var ki indol-3-karbinol'ün akciğer, meme ve bağırsak kanseri riskini azalttığına dair güçlü bilimsel veriler var.
Kale yapraklarını doğrayıp zeytinyağında sote edip, baharatlarla zenginleştirip üzerine yumurta kırabilirsiniz, havuç gibi mevsim sebzeleri ekleyip, kabuklu pirinç, kara buğday veya yeşil mercimek de ilave ederseniz, yanında yoğurtla tam bir öğün olabilir. Sağlıkla afiyetle tüketin, beslenirken 'şifalanın'...Sağlık ve esenlikler dileğimle, sevgimle...
What do you do when you have lots of leftover basil from margarita pizza night?? Make 🍃 KALE BASIL PESTO 🍃 thanks to #epicurious .
Have you noticed that basil is coming in bigger and bigger packages? .
I always keep extra de-stemmed kale in my freezer for smoothies-so great to have everything on hand and ready to make this. I don’t like wasting fresh herbs.
If you have extra basil in your fridge and want to make the pesto just put🍃, and I will send u the recipe.
A Tip for freezing pesto after you make it - spread it out on parchment paper in a circle, about 1/8” thick. Freeze for an hour. Then take a pizza cutter and cut it like a pizza. Place all pieces in a freezer safe bag and back into the freezer. This make is so easy to break off just the right amount as needed for any recipe!!!
If you can believe it, I still have more basil left 😛 .
Any more suggestions on what to do with it???
Who has a kid who’s learning to like veggies? 🙋🏻♀️
He likes crunchy stuff though like these kale chips. Yay! So I make these often. #momwin
I find they turn out better and stay crunchy when using a dehydrator instead of the oven though.
Want to make some?
1-2 bunch kale leaves, de-stemmed
1-2 tbsp avocado oil (or olive oil)
1 tsp sea salt
- In a large bowl, add kale leaves, oil and salt. Mix well.
- Place kale on dehydrator sheet in a single layer, check that each leaf has oil/salt.
- Dehydrate at 125 F/52 C for about 3 hours. Check if crunchy enough. They will shrink when dried. Store in a covered container.
Quick kale salad that is my easy go to lately! Simple dressing of EVOO, lemon zest and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Make sure to heavily massage your kale with your oil, you’d be shocked by how tender it gets! I really enjoy the body, chew and taste of it and it’s a great accompaniment to any main dish #kale#healthymeals#salad#dinnerideas#veggies
