Monday Food of the Day – January 11, 2016

FOOD OF THE WEEK – KALE

Why Kale?

Kale is a cruciferous vegetable (Brassica oleracea), and is related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, and cauliflower. It contains many of the health benefits typically found in this group of super foods.

BLUEBERRY PINEAPPLE KALE SMOOTHIE

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup pineapple, cubes
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 leaf kale
  • Ice cubes

Directions

  1. Wash kale and blueberries well. Remove the kale leaves from stem.
  2. Liquify ingredients in a blender.
  3. Enjoy.

Also, try mixing/substituting in:

  • Kiwi
  • Strawberries
  • Greek Yogurt

Blueberry and pineapple is a refreshing combo – tangy and tart. Pineapples are full of vitamin C, and blueberries are a potent source of anthocyanins, an antioxidant compound that helps keep our brain sharp and our cardiovascular system functioning smoothly. Blueberries also contain quercetin, which is a well studied flavonoid found in berries that is thought to protect against heart disease.
