Kale and Shrimp Salad with Coconut Basil dressing (Paleo, AIP, Keto, Whole30)


As for me, I am always looking for ways to incorporate kale in my diet. If you didn’t know about the health promoting properties of Kale already, allow me to educate you!  Kale is one of the most nutrient dense plant foods. It is rich in many vitamins – A, B, C, K and minerals (Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Manganese, Copper and Iron). Kale also contains powerful antioxidants which have anti-inflammatory and anti cancer properties 1.
