If bulgur is new to you, it should be on your must-try list. Not only is it tasty and simple to make, it is a superfood. Bulgur is a whole grain with a nutty flavor. And just 1 cup has 8 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. (Yes, a grain with protein… it happens!) So if you’re in a rice or potatoes rut, shake things up
a little with this great grain.
Do something great for your health today and cook up some kale! This low-calorie green provides an excellent source of both vitamins A (as beta-carotene) and C, along with a decent amount of fiber. Kale also delivers vitamin B6, which helps maintain healthy nervous and immune systems, as well as iron and calcium. You can sauté kale (in a bit of olive oil) as you would spinach.
* and by the way, kale goes great with bulgur wheat!
