Grilled Cheese & Kale

A healthy twist on a quick, simple lunch.

I’m obsessed with grilled cheese.  Seriously, I could eat it every day, and there are points in my life in which I admittedly do.  Unfortunately, grilled cheese isn’t exactly known for it’s healthy contents.   While cheese does have high levels of calcium, grilled cheese slobbered in buttered then fried doesn’t exactly scream “CLEAN EATING”.  How did we change that?  By adding kale, of course!  Kale makes everything better – or at least healthier.

Kale, a more commonly known superfood, is a rich source of several vitamins and minerals packed with antioxidants and numerous cancer-fighting substances.  With just one cup of kale a day you receive 684% of your recommended daily value for Vitamin K, 206% for Vitamin A and 134% for Vitamin C.

It tastes best with a side plate of crispy sweet potato fries (don’t forget the chipotle mayo!) or on its own as a light lunch with a side of ketchup.

Guilt free grilled cheese here.
