Comfort food has a place in a healthy diet | Jamie Oliver | Features. With the launch of Jamie’s Comfort Food last month, a lot of people are asking me how I feel about the indulgent nature of Jamie’s new book. My response is that the nutrition team work across Jamie’s entire portfolio of recipes to make sure there are always healthy options. That said, I’m of the same view as Jamie – I won’t deny or begrudge myself of a treat now and then. Having cooked a number of the recipes, I know this book is a real feast for the eyes and belly! Comfort food can be interpreted in many different ways: treats for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries; food to fuel you when you’re not feeling well; breakfasts to help banish a hangover; or perhaps as a reward after an achievement, whether it’s a meal after an exam or a particular food for a child who has behaved well.

It’s plain to see that comfort food plays a significant part in our lives, whether we realise it or not. Everyone has different tastes, but whatever they are, comfort food can play its part. Mandel-Tahini-Grünkohlchips - Kale-Chips mal süß. In der veganen Szene sind Grünkohlchips – auch als “Kale Chips” bezeichnet – lange bekannt und einer der Snacks überhaupt. Ich bin zum ersten Mal durch Colleen Patrick-Goudreaus Color me Vegan auf Grünkohlchips aufmerksam geworden. So richtig konnte ich mir damals nicht vorstellen, wie sie schmecken, und die Zubereitung habe ich auch über ein Jahr hinausgezögert.

Heute frage ich mich: warum? Grünkohl ist nicht nur reich an Vitamin C, sondern enthält auch die Vitamine Niacin, E und A sowie beträchtliche Mengen der Mineralstoffe Calcium, Magnesium, Kalium und Eisen. Nicht ohne Grund wird Grünkohl gerade in den USA als Superfood gehypt und ist in der Rohkostszene extrem beliebt. Ich muss zugeben, dass ich erst vor drei Wochen zum allerersten Mal überhaupt Grünkohl gekauft habe. Und bei meinem Kauf in einem kleinen Bio-Gemüseladen bei uns um die Ecke war ich total überrascht, wie günstig Grünkohl ist. Für alle, die nicht unwissend auf Einkaufstour gehen wollen – so sieht Grünkohl aus!
