HEALTHY NAILS

“A woman is helpless only while her nail polish is drying.”

Truth be told, I was looking for a dietary health tip for the body that would include green leafy vegetables.  That’s because of yesterday’s post about my granddaughter, Em, and her kale salad.  I was not a regular kale eater.  Because…

OK.  I know kale is so good for me but I didn’t like the toughness when raw and the taste when cooked.  And then my granddaughter came along and talked about massaging and mashing kale, along with other tasty ingredients, which made the kale tender and the taste amazing.

As a person who’s always looking to expend the least amount of effort, I opted out of the many minutes of mashing, alliteratively speaking, and got out my Kitchen Aid.  Set on the lowest setting and with the splash guard in place, I got the kale going in the Kitchen Aid bowl and added the other ingredients.  The cheese I used was minced rather than grated.  I added the grapes after the mixing was done.  Today I’m going to make this kale salad again and throw the grapes in during the mixing process.

Tender and Delicious

Oh, yes.  About healthy nails.  What else should a person include in their diet if they want strong, healthy nails?  Dark meat poultry, seafood, eggs, liver, nuts, lentils, and garbanzo beans.  TaDa!

There’s more, but I bet you’re developing amazing skills with Internet research.  Proud of you.
