What the Kale?


KALE: WHAT YOU'VE  BEEN MISSING?

If you haven’t added KALE into your diet yet, you need to. There are  many benefits. Personally, I am most interested in the cognitive benefits. Kale is lutein rich. Lutein is a nutrient that is known for maintaining brain function and can enhance learning and memory….. I’m definitely IN on that!! Now you may be asking yourself, “OK, but do I eat it cooked or raw?” If you are, here’s the breakdown…

RAW

higher Vitamin C

GOOD FOR: development and repair of all body tissues; other body functions:  formation of collagen, absorption of iron, wound healing, and general maintenance [of cartilage, bones, and teeth].

COOKED

Higher Vitamin K

GOOD FOR: regulating blood clotting, transporting calcium; overall bone health.

EITHER

High calcium 

GOOD FOR: building and maintaining strong bones; aiding in proper function of heart, muscles, and nerves. 

Kale can be enjoyed many different ways including steamed, sautéed, boiled in soups, braise.
