kale mac
"When I was growing up in the middle of America, I loved and lived on mac and cheese. I mean, let’s be honest, it is just SO good! However, most mac and cheese isn’t exactly going to give you what you need nutritionally and it depletes the energy supply. So, for my kids’ sake, I had to find a mac and cheese that tasted as good (if not better) AND filled them with all things good. This recipe takes 20 minutes, but you do need to do a little planning and place the cashews in a bowl of water the night before. Then you’re ready to go when you come home the next evening."- Julie Montagu, The Flexi Foodie.Recipe excerpted with permission from cookbook Super Foods Super Fast: 100 Energizing Recipes To Make in 20 Minutes Or Less by Julie Montagu. Click here to purchase your own copy.

Kale Bean Soup
 I love kale, but sometimes all the chewing it requires makes me put off using it. To avoid that jaw-aching task, I put my beloved food processor to work.  Paired with some spices, this dish similarly resembles the creamy Indian spinach dish known as Saag. Note:  Canned beans actually work well in this recipe because they tend to be a little undercooked. If cooking your own beans, keep them on the firm side, which will lend a nice consistency switch-up to the creamy soup.

Spinach Kale Broccoli Juice
Dark leafy greens like spinach and kale and the cruciferous broccoli are rich in many antioxidants and are important in supporting visual wellness. Like beets, they contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which actually absorb blue light that would have been harmful to the retina. See 9 Drinks That Will Improve Your Eye Sight.
