“Changing our diet is something we choose to do, not something we are forced to do. Instead of dreading it, try saying” Here’s another thing I get to do to help myself. Great!”
I love Kale! And guess what? It is one of the world’s healthiest foods. It provides a whole host of health benefits that other veggies cannot. Studies show that this superfood should be consumed at least 2-3 times a week to reap all of the health benefits it can offer. So what makes Kale so fabulous?
For starters, it is a great source of vitamins A, C and K. These types of vitamins are vital for maintaining good vision, a healthy immune system, proper hydration and normal bone growth. It’s also very rich in iron and fiber, can help lower cholesterol, and can help prevent the onset of other ailments such as arthritis and asthma. Most importantly, kale is loaded with powerful antioxidants that have been associated with the reduction of different types of cancers.
How often do you and your family eat kale? Why not give it a try.
