Sauteed Kale

Updated on August 13, 2014

This dish is very easy to prepare. It only takes a few ingredients and is full of nutrients. This was sauteed in olive oil. Olive oil is one of the healthiest types of oil to use for cooking. This is because it is a monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fats are great for people who want to lose weight. Olive oil is 75% monounsaturated fat. There are many varieties out on the market. It can be difficult to know if you are purchasing the right one. Olive oil is always better than all of the other oils. Some people will say coconut oil is better. This is not true, but you don't need to take that my word for that. You can try it out for yourself and see which one works better.

Kale has a reputation as a superfood. It is chock full of nutrients and much touted as a required food for vegans. It is high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and endless other minerals and vitamins.
