Warm Kale Salad With Curry

This Warm Kale Salad with Curry is perfect for Fall. It tastes and feels like comfort food while still being light and nutritious. It’s perfect for those chill Autumn nights when you’re curled up under a blanket watching Hulu.

 

One of the reasons I love cooking with curry, other than it being delicious, is that it has a ton of health benefits. Organic Facts says that it can reduce the possibility of getting Alzheimer’s, can help reduce blood pressure, and can help you fight off bacterial infections! That’s one powerful spice!

I’m a twenty-something lifestyle blogger who tries not to take life too seriously. I think laughing and running are the cure to everything especially when its done in a new city. I think a balanced diet is important, and that they’re much easier when they include chocolate. :)
