Kale Chili

Whenever I am asked what my favorite food is, I often think of Kale.  Kale gets 1000 on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI)–a which rates foods on a scale from 1 to 1000 based on nutrient content. I especially love Kale in warm dishes. I had some leftover tangy chili and decided to add in a bunch of Kale.  It is delicious. I hope you enjoy this organic kale chili with a super food boost of nutrition!

  1. Hi Robert, Thank you so much for your comment. Here are some tips for reducing sodium intake. Use low sodium or no sodium added canned beans and tomatoes. If you so use low sodium beans and tomatoes, you may choose to add no extra salt to your recipe. If you do add a little salt to an otherwise unsalted dish, you could start with a small amount, then adjust as needed. There are also low sodium salt options available at the grocery store. You may experiment and find one that you like. It is also helpful to look closely at any processed foods you may be having during the day, as these often contain much higher levels of sodium than meals made at home. Hope this helps!
