Health Benefits of Kale

Haven’t tried this veggie before? Here are a few reasons to try it in 2015.

1. A one cup serving of kale contains only 33 calories.

2. Each serving has about 3 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber, which helps maintain blood sugar and keeps you feeling full.

3. Contains high amounts of vitamins A, C and K in addition to folate, which is a B vitamin that is key for brain development.

4. Lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts. Minerals including phosphorus, potassium, calcium and zinc.
