Tip of Stefano:

A small tip: kale is often twice as tasty when you reheat it in the pan or oven the next day, or even two days later.

Kale full of nutrients, Vitamin K and antioxidants. In addition delicious in recipes.

You simply cannot miss kale, this is actually one of the most healthy vegetables, contains a wide variety of nutrients and -for that matter- a whole lot of them. Moreover, kale contains so much different types of vitamins that it  exceeds the Dietary Reference Intake (DRI). No problem whatsoever, because this is actually a recommended minimum. The very high amount of vitamin K in kale influences our cells that have a positive impact on inflammation. Many lifestyle diseases are caused by small infections in body cells that allow diseases to emerge. Think of – for example- diabetes and cancer, but also cardiovascular diseases.

Kale versatile: use in soup, stamppot, stew or mixed in healthy salads.

Besides healthy, kale is very versatile. You can use it in countless ways in your dishes, even raw it tastes delicious. Try mixing it in your salad, stir fry with other vegetables, add in an omelet, make a kale soup or use it in a delicious stew, as shown in the following recipe. The combination with seitan makes it exquisite!

He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.

“Seitan can be an excellent alternative to red meat in many dishes, and when used in conjunction with the right spices and seasonings, can taste very similar. It’s also loaded with protein — that’s what it is, after all. Wheat protein.” “Hail seitan? Damn right — if you’re looking for an alternative to red meat” cheatsheet.com
