A major food challenge which we have today is that much of it is empty calories, that is, it is empty in nutrition, but loaded in calories.

As we search for healthy food, nutrition dense food, the champion which keeps popping up today in nutrition literature, is KALE. Even spinach cannot come close in comparison to the number of nutrients that kale provides.

Many nutritionists today classify it as, the KING of the vegetables.

But, before we look at the many nutritional benefits of kale, lets look at what kale is…

- Kale is a popular vegetable,
- A member of the cabbage family
- It is related to cruciferous vegetables like
- Cabbage
- Broccoli
- Cauliflower
- Collard greens
- Brussels sprouts.

- There are many different types of kale.
- The leaves can be green or purple in color, and have either a
smooth or curly shape.
- The most common type of kale is called curly kale, which has
green and curly leaves and a hard, fibrous stem.

Just one single cup of raw kale (about 67 grams or 2.4 ounces) contains (1):

- 206% of the RDA for Vitamin A
- 684% of Vitamin K
- 134% of Vitamin C
- 26% of Manganese
- 10% of Copper
- 9% of Potassium (329 mg)
- 9 to 10% of Calcium
Because it contains an unusually high ration of calcium to
phosphorus, the calcium found in kale is absorbed extremely
well.
- 9% of Vitamin B6
- 6% of Magnesium:
- And that’s not all, it also contains 3% or more of Vitamin B1
(Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Iron
and Phosphorus.

You get all of these nutrients with ONLY 33 calories, 6 grams of carbs (2 of which are fiber) and 3 grams of protein.

Kale contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat in it is the omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid.

Given the incredibly low calorie content, kale is among the most nutrient dense foods in in the world. Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of one’s diet.

Including kale in your diet provides nutrients that support healthy skin, hair and bones, as well as healthy digestion, a reduced risk of heart disease improving blood glucose control in diabetics, lowering blood pressure and lowering the risk of developing asthma.

Other benefits of Kale include:

- It is Loaded with Powerful Antioxidants and Phytochemicals
which which helps prevent breast cancer, lung cancers and
many other degenerative diseases.

- A Great Source of Vitamin-C

- It can help lower Cholesterol and reduce the risk of Heart
Disease

- Kale is One of The World’s Best Sources of Vitamin K

The well known anticoagulant drug Warfarin, also known as
Coumadin, actually works by blocking the function of this
vitamin. Warfarin is a rat poison, which causes the rat to
internally bleed to death.

Kale is one of the world’s best sources of vitamin K, with a
single raw cup containing almost 7 times the recommended
daily amount.

- Kale is packed full of Cancer-Fighting Substances

- Kale is very high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that the
body can turn into vitamin A.

- It is a Good Source of Minerals That Most People Don’t Get
Enough of due to poor soil, refined diet and hybrid seeds.

- Kale is High in Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Powerful Nutrients
That Protect the Eyes from symptoms of Ageing.

- Kale is a food with low energy density, which has been
shown to aid in weight loss in numerous studies.

- Studies show that the alpha-lipoic acid which is readably
available in kale decreases in peripheral neuropathy and/or
autonomic neuropathy in diabetics.

- Research shows that those who consumed 4,069 mg of
potassium per day have a 49% lower risk of death from
ischemic heart disease, compared with those who consume
less potassium (about 1000 mg per day).

High potassium intakes are also associated with a reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density and reduction in the formation of kidney stones.

For blood pressure, increasing potassium intake may be just as important as decreasing sodium intake for lowering blood pressure because of potassium's vasodilation effects.

According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, fewer than 2% of US adults meet the daily 4,700 mg recommendation.

One cup of chopped fresh kale provides 79 milligrams of potassium, while a cup of cooked kale provides 296 mg of potassium.

Also of note, a high potassium intake is associated with a 20% decreased risk of dying from all causes.

The best way to feed your trillions of cells with this God-given treasure is by juicing it.

- Combine kale with other green vegetables and herbs such as
celery, swiss chard, collard greens, romaine lettuce, mustard
greens, watercress, dandelion, arugala, cucumber, parsley
or beet tops, some carrot and/or apple for sweetener.

- On an empty stomach, this super tonic will revitalize your
cells and body in minutes.

- Kale grows well in the colder winter months, so it can be a
great addition to your winter diet. Winter kale is usually
better cooked as colder weather can turn the sugars in kale
into starch, and increase the bitterness and fiber content of
the leaves.

- If using kale raw in salads, it is a good idea to massage the
kale (scrunch it briefly in your hands) to begin the breakdown
of the cellulose in the leaves, thereby helping to release the
nutrients for easier absorption.

- Kale can be enjoyed raw in salads or on sandwiches or
wraps, braised, boiled, sautéed or added to soups and
casseroles.

- Kale chips: Remove the ribs from the kale and toss in extra-
virgin olive oil or lightly spray and sprinkle with your choice
or a combination of cumin, curry powder, chili powder,
roasted red pepper flakes or garlic powder. Bake at 275
degrees Fahrenheit for 15-30 minutes to desired crispness.

- In a food processor or a high-speed blender, add a handful
of kale to your favorite smoothie for a nutrient blast without a
big change in flavor.

Today we are keeping busy planting.
We transplanted lots of heirloom verities like brandywine and Cherokee purple as well as some red slicers, paste tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. We also are planting sweet and hot peppers and hopefully we'll get some eggplant in before the rain. Now that Rebekah has a full belly we're off to planting again!
