About Me

 

Have you tried kale yet?

It is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C and a good source of calcium and potassium.  The calcium absorbs better than from some other higher calcium green leafy vegetables because kale is low in oxalate which can inhibit the absorption of calcium.  It is a non-starchy vegetable so it is very low in carbohydrate which makes it also lower in calories.  The fiber helps keep you full longer which is good for everyone, especially those trying to lose weight.

Kale chips are a popular way to eat kale and they are delicious.  However, there are many other ways to add it into your daily meals.  Try it in smoothies, add chopped kale the last 5 minutes your pasta is cooking to eat mixed with your pasta dish, add to stir-fries, and add chopped fresh or frozen kale to vegetable or bean soups. 

Try some this week!
