Killer Kale Cakes

In Chinese Medicine pretty much anything that is green benefits the liver and kale is as green as it gets. The Ancients had the right idea as current studies suggest that the phytonutrients in kale and other Brassicas (cabbage family) may actually help the liver neutralize potentially cancerous substances. Kale is rich in organo-sulfurs which studies show help to fight cancer. Protecting you from cancer, cataracts, emphysema, and rheumatoid arthritis kale is ultimate green.
Kale is also rich in beta-carotene, iron, manganese, calcium and potassium, calcium, lutein, and vitamins A, C, and K.
Some of these vitamins and minerals are super skin supplements like lutein which increases the hydration, elasticity and lipid content of the skin. A powerful antioxidant vitamin C stimulates collagen production and cell regeneration.

At this point you can probably understand why I am so deeply in love with this leafy green.
I have met a few people who love kale as much as I do, and I owe this recipe to one of them.
It is so easy and oh so tasty too.
So get green, live long and prosper with this powerful beauty booster.
