One of the stars of our best seller, Organic Quinoa & Kale!

This superfood is a dark leafy green vegetable with many health benefits! Here are 8 reasons why you should add this powerhouse green into your diet:

  1. Kale is low in calories and high in fiber.

    This nutrient rich cruciferous vegetable only has 36 calories per cup. Thanks to its high fiber content, adding kale to your diet can help keep you fuller longer and aid with digestion!

  2. Kale supports vision, bone and immune system health

    thanks to its high levels of Vitamin A.

  3. Kale is high in Vitamin C

    which plays a vital role in helping your body grow and repair tissues. Getting enough Vitamin C in your diet can increase your energy levels, ward off signs of premature aging due to free radical damage and even help your hair and nails to grow and strengthen!

  4. The high Vitamin K content in kale

    helps the body to control blood clotting, develop and maintain healthy bones and absorb calcium from the food we eat!

  5. Per calorie, kale contains more iron than beef.

    Iron assists in delivering oxygen to all of the cells in our body and is essential for healthy brain function, muscle health and regulation of our body temperature.

  6. Kale has omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids

    which both contribute to heart health!

  7. One cup of kale contains 9% of your daily recommended calcium.

    Not only does calcium help build strong bones, it also aids in maintaining a healthy metabolism!

  8. Kale contains over 45 different flavonoids!

    Flavonoids work to prevent inflammation in the body.
