I eat a lot of Kale especially when I donate platelets every two weeks. It is very high in Iron .. I add black beans to give it that extra boost and I pass my iron test every time!
Thanks to Kale and it's good qualities, I help people who have cancer. It's a great vegetable and I learned about it FROM a cancer patient. You have a nice site.

About

Heidi, a good friend of mine introduced me to this vegan salad. When I have the ingredients handy, this salad takes 10-15 minutes to prepare and what is not to like about that? One thing to note, the raw garlic can make this salad a bit spicy. I have never added anything else to this salad, but I bet it would be delicious with other vegetables, especially something crunchy like celery.
