I know I know! It’s been quite a while I haven’t shared with you my personal inspirations, ideas, tips or any sort of that thing.
Blame it on the show? Well I don’t want to be too harsh since Catwalk is my other baby, but yes it is keeping me very busy from writing 🙁
Oh and besides the show, I’ve been quite busy planning and preparing few projects for the coming season and I promise I will share everything in due time.
Putting the blame aside, I am here to share with you one of my favorite pastime, aka cooking 🙂
I am so thrilled I am finding kale around here. I’ve been curious enough to taste this hot trendy veggie, not only because I spot Gwyneth and Heidi munching on kale, but seriously, have you read reviews about it?
I won’t go through the scientific details of it but all I can tell you is that kale is a member of the cauliflower family and it is rich in so many different things. It is an excellent source of vitamins, contains a variety of antioxidants as well as anti-inflammatory effects through our bodies, plus it prevents from heart and cancer diseases. I have also spotted few reviews referring to moderation when consuming kale as it obviously has some risks and side effects on the digestive system.
Now I am the type of person who love to try new savors and flavors and for one lazy stay-at-home dinner, here is what I did:
1 bunch of kale (You can use spinach or lettuce instead)
A handful of green olives
2 free-range chicken breast cut into thin slices
2 garlic cloves chopped
2 shallots finely sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 TSP soy sauce
Cut the kale, boil the broccoli until tender and set both aside.
Fry the garlic and shallots, then add the chicken along with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (to taste).
Once cooked, add broccoli and olives and mix together for barely a minute then turn off the fire.
Prepare the kale in a bowl of salad. Top it with the chicken mix.
In another bowl mix the dressing ingredients (Olive oil, lemon, soy sauce and black pepper), then drizzle over the salad.
Seriously, it is one of the best salads I have ever tried!
If you are not a big fan of spicy food, you can easily omit the cayenne pepper.
Anyone who would try it?
Share with me your thoughts! Any other ideas using kale?
