We all know how good Kale is for you, right? It’s packed with phyto-nutrients that can seriously combat disease. But, it can be a little bitter. So getting creative with a little natural sweetness will make you want to eat this power-veggie more often. This delicious Kale salad is slightly wilted with honey-glazed, roasted butternut squash, roasted honey pumpkin seeds and sweet and tangy pomegranate seeds.

Be blessed in whole health!
