Um, hi. JLo called (You know, the 45 year old woman who has a better body and glowier skin than all of us young ones?), and she revealed one of her diet secret weapons: a 39-calorie kale salad.
Okay, so she didn’t actually us. The salad recipe is one of the many found on BodyLab, a new women’s health and fitness brand founded by J.Lo. The gist: You can sign up for the site for free and get workouts and recipes, as well as shopping for some of J.Lo’s new supplements and protein powders. So basically, you’d be insane not to. Back back to that salad…
Kale Salad With Queso
1 bunch kale, large stems removed and leaves finely chopped
1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
2 oz. crumbled queso
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
By breaking up the recipe into 6 portions, you’ll ensure you don’t overeat (after all, kale is not meant to be a calorie bomb of a meal). Try this as a side salad with fish for dinner, or as a light lunch with some grilled chicken on top. Not your thing?
