Quick Kale Snack in under 5 Minutes

Kale Snack

Ever need a quick snack and can’t find anything? The fridge is empty and the pantry has items loaded with sugar and carbs. A quick hunger fix is usually followed by a sugar crash and you end up with low energy for the rest of the afternoon.

Arranging healthy alternatives before you need them is the best way to avoid unhealthy choices. This snack only takes a few minutes to prepare. I make a large quantity, store it in the fridge and graze on it for a couple of days.

Cooking the kale quickly seals in vitamins, keeps the color and texture and enhances the flavor. I toss in sesame seeds and sesame oil for an amazing flavor. To keep it interesting I sometimes just toss in fresh squeezed lime and chile oil.

I think of this snack as the ultimate brain power food. It gives me energy and helps me focus through the day. Here are the scientific reasons why: Vitamins B6, B12, B1, E, fiber, copper, calcium, carotenes and manganese. Everything you need for a powerful vitamin boost that helps your body ward off cancer cells.

Sesame Kale
2 Pounds of kale, rinsed, ends trimmed and chopped into long shreds
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
3 Teaspoons Sesame Oil
Heat skillet over medium high heat. I like to use a non stick wok. Add olive oil.
When pan is very hot add kale and heat until color turns a deep green and kale is still crunchy. Stir continuously to even cook. About 3 minutes.
Add sesame seeds. Cook 1 additional minute.
Remove from heat and toss in sesame oil.
Serve warm or cold. (Store in a container in the fridge up to 4 days)
