Spring is in the air in South Florida, and today I’m really excited to share one of my favorite recipes which includes a vegetable (from the cabbage family) with such a high carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, it’s now acclaimed as the “new beef.” Can you guess which veggie I’m talking about? Hailed as the “new beef,” Kale has a 3:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio – an exceptionally high amount of protein for any vegetable. At just 33 calories, one cup of raw kale has nearly 3 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full), vitamins A, C, and K. And, there’s more benefits involved with raw kale. Click Here to find out more about Kale… On Thursday night, adult students will be making pasta from scratch.
