Kale being low in energy and high in nutrients can be over-consumed without extra-calorie intake and with fulfillment of body need for micro-nutrients, reveals Stephan. Vitamin B from kale converts proteins, fats and carbohydrates into energy units which are essential for laziness-free day.
A quick snack of nutrients can be prepared by removing kale leaves so that the stem can be drizzled with olive oil (extra-virgin). Salt and pepper can be added for flavor. Next step is baking, at about 350 degrees, for 15 minutes and your baked kale snack is ready to be enjoyed. Amazingly enough 100 g of kale gives away merely 8 g of carbohydrates and 4 g of plant-protein.
