Kale, Radish, Mung beans and a Paw Paw for breakfast.

I am glad that I am the only person in the house who likes Paw Paw, because the Paw Paws on my tree are not very big.  Perfect for one person. It would have been beautiful with Bircher Muesli only I had forgotten that I had finished the Bircher Muesli yesterday. Check out the link above for my very favourite breakfast.

Kale, radish and mung beans with dinner tonight. Kale is considered one of the most nutritious vegetables in the world with powerful antioxidant properties.

It is a member of the cabbage family and closely related to wild cabbage. It is a real heirloom vegetable having been eaten for centuries.   Check out the excerpt from Wikipedia below on its health benefits.

“Kale is very high in beta carotenevitamin Kvitamin Cluteinzeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium. Kale, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane (particularly when chopped or minced), a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties.[citation needed] Boiling decreases the level of sulforaphane; however, steamingmicrowaving, or stir frying do not result in significant loss.[2] Along with other brassica vegetables, kale is also a source ofindole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells.[3][4] Kale is also a good source of carotenoids

My second planting of Kale is starting to grow nicely and I think that when I make the next garden bed I will be planting more.  Its has lots more flavour than white cabbage.
