Veggies by George Challenge #3, Part 1

KALE.  While I love it's colour and flavour, I am not crazy about the texture of kale.  My personal mission this week was to find ways for me to enjoy kale and all of it's positive health benefits.

Kale is naturally rich in calcium, leutein, iron, and sulphur.  It is a fiber-rich food with high levels of vitamins A, C and K.  For all of these reasons, kale is a great natural detoxifier and blood purifier.

Recipe #1     
Green Tropical Cocktail

Large handful of kale, washed
Small handful of parsley, washed
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 C pineapple juice
2 pineapple rings
4 ice cubes.

Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth and drink immediately.  Makes about 2 8oz servings.
