I have to admit, I don’t like the taste of kale. I just don’t. Of course, I know it’s considered a superfood and one of the most beneficial vegetables on the planet. Since I don’t like the taste of kale, I decided to play around with it and see if there are other ways that would taste better than just raw. So, I sautéed it. Of course, it turned out like chips, crunchy. Check it out!
Oh, and don’t forget the blueberries. They are in season now. Also, they give this salad the sweetness. Naturally, they add a boost of vitamin C and contain calcium, which is good for maintaining healthy bones.
The pumpkin seeds are good to snack on or to add to a salad like this one. Because of the large content of magnesium in them, they benefit your blood. Also, they can help prevent heart attack, stroke, or cardiac arrest in the future.
