Superfoods like kale are “super” because they have an extraordinary ability to provide the body with huge amounts of nutrition in one packed punch and protect your body from free radicals and carcinogens. Including them in your diet is essential in this day and age due to our soil being depleted of key vitamins and minerals. Remember, eating a piece of broccoli now vs. 20 years ago does not yield the same amount of nutrition. It’s crucial that we try to overcompensate this fact by consuming as many nutrient dense foods as possible!  

To find out more about my favorite superfoods and 4 of my favorite spots to get them locally here in Charlotte, read my article that came out yesterday in Creative Loafing.

Have a Happy Weekend!

    I love Fern! They have such yummy vegan options, and living over in Noda makes them super convenient when family shows up last minute and wants to grab lunch/dinner somewhere. :)

    I’ve been wanting to go to Fern for a while now. The chef did a cooking demo for a professional meeting I attended and her quinoa burgers were very yummy. A free meal would be a great way to get my stubborn husband to try this delicious vegetarian cooking!!

    Hey Food Babe!! I live in nearby Huntersville and just passed Fern last week while running errands with my husband! He laughed at me and said, “You wanna go in? I bet Food Babe’s there! You might get her autograph;)” LOL It just seems like everytime he asks what Im up to on the computer Im usually reading your blog or some artical you reccommended.. But really, I asked him if he’d please try Fern out with me sometime, and he said he would if I really wanted him to. It would be such a nice break from scouring the menu looking for something healthy and being tempted by all the meat, white pasta, bread, potatoes, and grease he normally consumes at restaurants. And I KNOW he’d give it a try if it was free! I’d love to win this giveaway! And if I happen to see you there…can I have your autograph?? haha:)
