Kale is one of the best detox foods around. In the American journal of clinical nutrition a study has suggested that a diet rich in vitamin K helps us fight cancer.
Kale, in particular, has been recognised as helping lower the risk of certain cancers (colon, ovarian, prostate, bladder and breast). This could be because a single cup contains over 680% RDA of vitamin K.
To get the best benefits its better to eat our kale organic and freshly harvested.
This salad is astonishingly simple but has the wow factor in terms of visual impact. It is also something the kids all like. Per person you need a large tomato or a beef tomato, a ball of buffalo mozzarella, and good handful of kale thats been tossed in a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing.
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella and working carefully layer the mozzarella, tomato and kale. Too high and it comes crashing down so youll know when enough is enough. When youve finished stacking the ingredients pour the remaining dressing over the food and sprinkle with pine nuts.
Best served at room temperature and not much longer than half an hour after prep or else the kale suffers from being marinated in the dressing.
Eating a diet rich in the powerful antioxidant vitamin K can reduce the overall risk of developing or dying from cancer, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
