If you're like us and are still planning out your Thanksgiving menu, here is a pumpkin pie recipe you might find helpful. I don't know the original source; it was handed down to me from my mom a few years ago. I can still remember watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on TV and smelling this lovely pie cooking in the oven. Which begs the question -- what are you doing for Thanksgiving this year? Are you a parade/football watcher? Or do you do something a bit more active like a Turkey Trot 5K?
The "queen of greens" is nutritious and delicious. It is low in calories and has zero fat. It is high in fiber, iron (kale has more iron than beef), vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, folate and magnesium. It is a strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detox food.
Today, we bring you a delicious raw kale salad that is easy to put together. We're not sure where it came from (it was a handwritten copy in one of our recipe books at home), but it has been around a while and we can personally attest to its great taste!
The health benefits of vitamin C have been known so long that sometimes this power-house antioxidant vitamin falls off the radar. But it can't be taken for granted; the body can't generate Vitamin C, so it has to be received into the body through food and supplements.
