Kale. It's one of those items that you either love or hate but either way, you know you should include it in your diet.
If you're looking at all the greens, Kale is the King Kong of super healthy greens. Kale is high in fiber and water. Both of these help prevent constipation and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract. It also contains B vitamins, and vitamin C, which promotes iron absorption which is essential for the release of energy from food.
Kale is much higher in vitamin C than most other vegetables and vitamin C is an important water-soluble antioxidant that serves many vital functions in the body's cells. It's also an excellent source of vitamin K which is know for it's blood clotting benefits.
Like many many leafy greens, it’s an excellent source of antioxidants. Kale contains alpha-linoleic acid which is known for its potential benefits in regulating blood sugar and potassium which is known for its heart healthy benefits. Lastly, it’s a good source of folate and calcium.
If you're not a kale lover, that's about to change! I introduce to you...Thrive freeze dried kale!
No washing! No chopping! No waste!
Oh and super easy to sneak into ANYTHING you are making!
The kids won't know it's in their smoothie! WooHoo! I just toss it into the blender with everything else and it blends up perfectly. Mom or dad hack for the win!
If you aren't a fan of this amazing super food, you won't know it's in there either.
My big issue with kale from the store is that I don't know how long it has been sitting there with vital nutrients deplenshing by the day. I don't have time to wash it and chop it before tossing it in the smoothie or a meal I'm making. Of course there's the waste from not eating it before it gets slimy and the parts I chop off that I don't eat.
Wait, that was more than a big issue...that was a number of issues I have with kale.
I have been a fan of this super food for years but rarely buy it due to all my "issues" with it.
Also, did I mention that when I use store bought kale in my smoothie, my smoothie is sort of gritty? Like the blender can't get it to the consistency I would like in a smoothie so I just deal with it.
This is a major kid issue too. There's no hiding kale from the store in their smoothie. Believe me!
Not only can you use this in smoothies, you can toss it into any meal you're making. Want the added benefits to spaghetti? Toss in some kale! Stuff it in some mushrooms or you can even bake with it. Kale brownies are MUCH better than they sound.
Order some Thrive kale today and you won't be sorry! It's the sneaky way to eat healthy! Well, maybe not when you bake it in brownies but hey, you're eating kale brownies and that has to count for something, right?
If you have someone who absolutely does not like kale and need to go into stealth mode with your kale creations, blend it into a powder first. This takes away any chance they might see a green leaf. You're welcome. You can thank me later once the kale hater is slurping up your smoothie or chowing down on your spaghetti with no clue.
