Kale and Sweet Potato Salad by Dr Alexsia Priolo is easy and delicious. You can  add in whatever extra vegetables that you have in the fridge or out in the garden. Since the kale leaves are tough, you don’t need to worry about the leaves wilting too much if you have leftovers (I think it tastes even better!). Get the recipe.

    I’d love to win a copy as it would enhance the boring salads I take to work for lunch. It would give me more variety. Thank you for the chance.

      I hear ya Meghan! Having the same thing for lunch everyday gets old really quickly!

    I would give it to my friend who is in a rut when it comes to eating healthy. I would love to give her some inspiration. We could make a few together. In return that would make me happy!

    ** Eating for Pain **
    Having fibromyalgia means combating with 24/7 chronic pain and eating healthily, as certain herbs, spices, fruit, vegetables, etc aggravate it, even coffee. I’ve bought books containing recipes for low GI, celiac, diabetes plus more, but tend to make my own meals.

    • Jesse Lane Lee, CNP on August 1, 2016 at 8:26 pm

      Hi Jo-Anne, this cookbook will really help you with healthy eating for pain management. Good luck!
