    It’s Meatless Monday-Cranberry-Orange Kale Salad

    Kale always seems to be on sale, but the price per bunch dips even lower around this time of the year. It’s a superfood too which makes it a nutritional powerhouse.

I’ve sometimes used  leftover refried beans too. Pair it with a side salad, guacamole and sour cream and it’s one of the easiest suppers to pull together at a moment’s notice. 1 cup cooked brown rice 1 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed ½ cup salsa 1 cup…
