Cajun Kale Salad Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

4 ears sweet corn
1 small bunch kale
1 large red pepper, diced
1 green pepper
1 small vidalia onion or
1 red onion, minced
1 small garlic clove, minced fine
1 1/2 tsp cajun spice mix (below)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cajun spice mix:
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp fresh ground white pepper

Recipe Preparation

Combine all ingredients for Cajun Spice Mix in a small bowl and stir
thoroughly to mix. Store in a spice jar or other air-tight container.

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add corn. Cook for 5 minutes
until bright yellow. Remove corn with tongs and reserve 1 cup of the
cooking liquid. Cool corn and cuts kernels off the cobs. Place in a
larger mixing bowl.

Wash the kale in a large basin of cold water. Strip or cut leaves from
tough stems. Discard stems. Chop kale leaves medium fine. Bring
reserved corn cooking liquid to a boil, add chopped kale, and cook
for 5 minutes or until kale is just tender and still bright green.
Remove from cooking liquid with a slotted spoon and spread on a large
plate to cool quickly. When kale is cool, toss together with corn,
red and green pepper, onion, garlic, and Cajun spices.

Just before serving, toss with the lemon juice for a nonfat salad.

Dieting tips

In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys can become stressed and that the resultant change in blood acidity levels can cause the loss of bone, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have found no evidence of deterioration of the kidneys or bone damage.
Remember, one point that is frequently overlooked, it is very difficult (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carbohydrate diet.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)

The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
