Kale has an abundant source of beta-carotene that converts in the body to retinol. Retinol is an active form of vitamin A, which protects against oxidative stress and UV damage.
Brazil nuts contain selenium which helps to slow down the aging process caused by sun damage.
Today, I am going to share a delicious Kale Pesto Dip created by a new friend of mine, chef Laura Henry-Zoubir. I’m really excited to have met Laura: not only is she a great person, she is a very talented chef who actually won on Chopped! More to come from Laura in the coming months, so stay connected!
The beauty of this pesto is that it’s packed with 2 sun protective power nutrients and it’s so versatile. This would be great at a Father’s Day celebration. You can serve it as a dip, sandwich spread or even marinate your chicken before grilling. The Greek yogurt in the pesto will help to make your chicken oh so tender and flavorful.
Although most dads are not typically big salad eaters, this is a great way to slip in some greens — it’s tasty and you’ll help save their skin, too!
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there! And a special blessing to my husband, Peter, who is one of the most amazing fathers I know.
