Sautéed Kale Bowl with Protein

This sautéed kale bowl with protein is packed with superfoods! Need a quick easy go to meal? Of course, you do. This easy ground meat and kale recipe is great for a busy weeknight. Full of color and nutrition, this amazing macro bowl hits the spot. I honestly had never sautéed kale until this recipe. I loved it!! It makes kale actually cool.

Don’t overcomplicate it when it comes to a balanced meal. This recipe was inspired by a college aged client on a low budget. She did a great job pairing together complex carb, lean protein and veggies. The potatoes and beans are hearty high fiber carbs that will promote improved satiety, the lean ground meat adds adequate protein and is often more affordable, and the kale provides a boost of vitamins and minerals also at a very low cost.

Sautéed Kale Bowl with Protein Nutrition Info:

Kale: Kale is very high in nutrients and very low in calories, making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Great source of vitamin K, C, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium and potassium! Need I say more? Just give the satueed kale bowl a try.

Sweet Potato: Great source of fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and manganese. It counts as a complex carb and adds color!

Ground Venison: Three ounces of venison contains about 130 calories and only 3 grams of total fat, making it lower in saturated fat than beef. It typically has a few more grams of protein as well!

Black Beans: provide lots of soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which have proven to decrease your risk of multiple chronic diseases and help you stay full longer. One cup also has about 15 grams of protein along with other vitamin and minerals! Don’t forget to throughly rinse your beans!
