  • Wash: Wash your hands well with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before handling food. Also make sure to wash and sanitize any surfaces, dishes, utensils, pans and cooking equipment before and after you use them. Washing your hands and your cooking tools well will prevent bacteria from spreading around the kitchen.
  • ​Separate: Stay safe by avoiding cross contamination. Use different cutting boards for your raw and prepared foods. Use one cutting board for meat, fish and eggs, and another one for fruits, vegetables and cooked foods. Using separate cutting boards will reduce the risk of spreading bacteria from one type of food to another.
  • Kale isn't considered a super food for no reason, it's full of goodness and nutrition. It is rich in antioxidants like, vitamin A and vitamin K but, as hard as it may be to believe, one cup of chopped kale actually has more vitamin C than an orange! One cup of chopped kale also has 3g of protein (yes you read it right, protein) and 2g of fibre.  Remember – fibre helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full.  So keep eating your kale.
