Kale is loaded with antioxidants, which help boost your immune system and lower your risk for chronic degenerative diseases, including cancer. Antioxidants also give kale anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce the risk of heart disease, arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disorders. Kale is also a great source of calcium, potassium, copper, and manganese and a good source of dietary fiber, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, Folate, iron, magnesium, and phosphorous.
The fiber in kale cleans your intestinal tract and helps lower blood cholesterol levels, which reduces the risk of heart disease. Kale is low in calories and fat, and has no cholesterol, so it won’t make you fat or clog your arteries!
Kale chips are incredible! Light, crispy, crunchy, and tasty, they are super easy to make. See the recipe I posted on the “Healthy Recipes” page (under “more…”) to make yours today and enjoy them as a snack or with your favorite sandwich.
