Ode to Kale

Local, Manatee County farms have brought their winter harvest to the Beach Bistro. Included in the bounty is fresh kale. The Bistro will be offering Sautéed Kale and Roasted Kale as Clever Asides and presentation accompaniments.

In addition to being among nature’s finest savory greens, kale is also one of the healthiest Superfoods on the planet. Kale is rich in vitamin A, C and K, omega-3s, iron, folate, magnesium, lutein, calcium, carotenoids and flavonoids. This means that every time you indulge in a kale-inspired dish, you are boosting your body’s natural immune system, helping lower your cholesterol, providing your heart cardiovascular support, fostering a supercharged metabolism as well as promoting healthy eyes, skin and bones. When served as an accompaniment to soups, salads and main entrees, kale adds a new dimension of depth and vibrancy to that dish, making it as good to eat as it is good for you.
