- Kale is full of amazing nutrients, easy and resilient to grow, and can be added to a variety of dishes. This leafy green belongs to a family called the cruciferous vegetables along with cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli to name a few. Cruciferous vegetables are extremely beneficial for detoxification and should not be underestimated. Their phytonutrient compounds have been shown to have powerful anti-aging and anti-cancerous properties. Furthermore, kale is an excellent fibrous vegetable that will help promote bowel regularity, lower cholesterol, and maintain even blood sugar throughout the day. Not to mention, this veggie is packed full of vitamin K. This vitamin allows our blood to clot normally, contributes to bone health, and has anti-inflammatory actions. Kale’s also rich in vitamin A and C, which are powerful antioxidants and superstar vitamins.
