If you want to learn more about clean eating and wanting something that is not just nutritious, but also filling – I have got the perfect recipe for you!

Kale the Superfood

Kale is for sure one of those superfoods that everyone is heard of and have their own take on. You can make them into chips, throw them in your fruit smoothies, and even add them to your burgers! I personally love kale soooo much. It does have a bitter taste that takes a while for some to get used to. For others, it’s just another yummy plant! It is one of the most nutrient-dense plants known to man and is absolutely loaded with antioxidants. What’s not to love about kale especially in this sweet potato kale salad?!

I use this tool for taking the kale leaves off the stem. It works so good!

Kitchen gadgets I love:

This sweet potato kale salad with yummy roasted brussel sprouts and a caesar-ish dressing is the best dinner or lunch. If you want, you could even add some grilled salmon or chicken to it.

You Gotta Love Brussel Sprouts

A childhood nightmare has turned into a real adult dream come true. I’m talking brussel sprouts! Growing up, there were always those TV shows that showed kids just hating having to eat brussel sprouts. They had an awful stigma, but now in 2020, we have all grown out of that stereotype for them. In fact, we all actually really enjoy them! I personally love them roasted with some garlic – pure perfection! They are also high in antioxidants and fiber. They also have been proven to help some people in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.

Anyone who likes vegetables will love this sweet potato kale salad. But if you are someone who is not too keen about getting their daily intake of veggies, this is a great gateway recipe for you to try to really appreciate all that your greens can offer you! And if all else fails, you can always add some tasty grilled chicken to it, too!

I hope you all enjoy this sweet potato kale salad with brussel sprouts and a caesar-ish dressing as much as I love eating it!
