This is a delicious and easy side that complements chicken and turkey particularly well.

1 tbsp. coconut or olive oil
2 cups of kale, chopped
3 cups of fresh spinach
¼ cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp. sliced almonds
1-2 tbsp. water
Optional: crumbled blue cheese or feta cheese

  • Add kale with 1 tablespoon of water.  Cook, stirring frequently, until the kale has softened, 3 – 4 minutes.

  • Add spinach.  If the kale is starting to stick add another tablespoon of water.  Stir and cook until the spinach is wilted.
  • Stir in almonds, and season with salt and pepper if desired.
  • If you are adding in the optional cheese, sprinkle over the top and serve!
