Kale is nutritionally ranked the number one food. Contemplate adding it to your diet if it is not already; your body will thank you for it.
Kale is a power-food due to its richness in three particular areas: Antioxidant nutrients, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and anti-cancer nutrients. Studies show that Kale lowers cholesterol, lowers risk for bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate cancers, detoxifies the body, and protects against inflammation. Also, I notice my skin becomes particularly clear as I increase kale intake. Kale’s nutrient per calorie density is superb. See for yourself.
Kale can be found at most grocery stores; typically, several types of kale are provided. They are all equally nutritious but slightly vary in taste. My favorite is dinosaur kale lightly steamed to a bright, vivid green.

My favorite kale recipe is a smoothie! The recipe can vary, but essentially the smoothie consists of kale, fruit, and a little water. Frozen bags of fruit work great. I love Costco’s bag of mixed fruit or strawberries. (hint: Though the mix of fruit can vary, always add a banana! It stifles and sweetens Kale’s bitterness).
