Weekly Food Item: Kale
Why it was selected: In the nutrition realm, there is a score that many people go by to determine which foods to put into their body. This score is known as the ANDI (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index) Score, which tells us how rich in nutrients a food item is. The scale is 1–1000, with 1000 being the highest level of nutrient density a food can achieve. Kale ranks at a perfect 1,000!! As the winter months roll around, kale is a perfect green to boost immunity.
Himalayan sea salt
1) Cut kale into medium-sized pieces.
2) Place a tablespoon of olive oil, a few dashes of salt, and a handful kale in a bowl.
4) Place the kale on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
5) Set the oven for 350, and it stick in for between 10–15 minutes (I don’t like soggy kale chips, so I like to wait for them to get crispier before taking them out)
