Why Should You Eat Kale?


1 Cup of Kale:
- 206% DV of Vitamin A
- 134% DV of Vitamin C
- 684% DV of Vitamin K
...33 Calories

That's equivalent to eating...
...103 bananas for enough Vitamin A
...384 carrots for enough Vitamin K

Caloric Ratio:
- 72% Carbohydrate
- 16% Protein
- 12% Fat

It's also...
...an anti-inflammatory
...high in fibre
...a great source of antioxidants
...a digestion aid (due to the sulfur content)
...an anti-cancer agent (due to the ITC from glucosinolates)

Enjoy!
