Give Thanks To Kale With These Holiday Side Dishes

KaleButternutSquashandCorn-850x938In addition to an impressive roster of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, iron, and vitamins A, B6, C, and K, kale is packed with dietary fiber, which helps you feel full. That’s always a nice perk, but on Thanksgiving or at other holiday meals, eating a big portion of kale salad or sautéed kale before starting on the not-so-good-for-you sides like sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce will help you eat smaller portions of those indulgent treats without feeling deprived. Plus, the nicely bitter flavor of kale helps cut through the rich, sweet flavors on the holiday table and won’t leave you with that overstuffed feeling afterwards.
