Chef Seamus Mullen shared his recipe for this parsley, kale, and berry smoothie in bonappetit.com (April 2012).  Chef Mullen suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, and with a bit of research he has found that parsley contains anti-immflamatory properties, which has aided in relieving the soreness in his hands.  By adding parsley to dishes, you are giving a boost to your immune system, which can aid in the defense against many illnesses. Kale, is loaded with fiber, iron, vitamin K, C, A and calcium.
