3 Kale Loaded Low FODMAP Recipes
Of all the super healthy greens, kale is definitely superior! It is low in calories but incredibly high in nutrients, in particular vitamins A, K and C. It’s also loaded with antioxidants which have powerful heart protective, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-cancer effects. Oh, and did we mention it’s low FODMAP?
Kale often gets a bad rap due to its bitterness but how you cook it definitely makes a difference! We've done the hard work and incorporated it into three amazing dishes for you. If you give them a go, please tag us @fodbods on Instagram :)
