I feel great! I was able to sit through an entire “Roma’s take-out” meal and eat my leafy greens. Knowing I would feel better then them in about 20 minutes hehe. And so I did.
After a headache for the last 2 days, it was nice to feel like exercising and a friend called just at the right time!
I also found out today that my “green monster” drinks would taste a whole lot better if I took off the hard stem from the kale leaf. >< Having never eaten kale before, I had no idea I needed to do this. However, I had put kale in my salads without the stem and had thought the salad tasted great. I appreciate this leafy green in more ways then one!
Did you know…?
Kale is a member of the brassica family along with cauliflower, collard greens and broccoli.
Kale is an excellent source of…
- Dietry Fibre
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B1, B2, B6
- Vitamin E
…as well as a host of other phytonutrients.
Just one portion of kale is only 36 calories but it provides:
- a massive 192% of your daily vitamin A needs
- 89% of your vitamin C
- 10.5% of your daily fibre requirements
- and more!
Kale contains sulphorane. What’s so special about that? Sulphorane encourages the liver to produce enzymes that detoxify cancer causing chemicals, especially those connected to chemically-induced breast cancer and colon cancer.
