If you are looking to use more superfoods during the winter season, then leafy greens like kale are a great choice. Kale grows well in the winter and is relatively easy to find at most grocery stores. It is a superfood filled with vitamins and minerals, and is great for many diets, from clean eating to Paleo or Keto. Here are four different types of kale salads to try out this winter.
If you love pesto and beets, you will love this recipe... and even if beets are not necessarily your vegetable of choice, the pesto sauce brings in a delightful flavour... that even I can enjoy the beets in this salad. :) This salad is low carb with only 8.6g net carbs (for my keto friends) & high is healthy fats! Omega-3 fatty acids support brain function, cognitive health, cardiovascular health, reduce triglycerides, support mental and emotion well-being... to name a few of the benefits! ✔ It's no wonder I recommend Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Did you know beets have a cleansing effect on the liver, aid digestion and the immune system and tone the blood and build red blood cells. They also flush out uric acid & table salt and combat anemia, debility and general weakness. Now you know why beets are in almost all nutritional detoxes! The Roasted Beet Noodles with Pesto and Kale recipe from my friends over at Inspiralized, along with 19 other fabulous recipes are part of my Post-Holiday Detox, now available in my online shop.
This recipe is devoured in minutes when served at my kitchen table. I enjoy this salad at breakfast, lunch , dinner or may sneak into it for a light snack. It is very refreshing and light for the summer season. The lime gives this a nice kick to accompany all the amazing flavors.
