About Organic Kale Black

Kale is a nutritional standout in three basic areas; antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients, much-needed macronutrients, and cancer-preventive nutrients called glucosinolates. In addition to conventional antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese, kale also provides us with at least 45 different recently discovered flavonoids, including kaempferol and quercetin. Many of the flavonoids in kale are also now known to function not only as antioxidants, but also as anti-inflammatory compounds.

It provides us with a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), the basic building block for all omega-3 fats. Kale's special mix of cancer-preventing glucosinolates has been the hottest area of research on this cruciferous vegetable. Kale is an especially rich source of glucosinolates, and once kale is eaten and digested, these glucosinolates can be converted by the body into cancer preventive compounds. Some of this conversion process can also take place in the food itself, prior to consumption.

Also worth noting in kale's nutritional profile is its vitamin K content. Kale contains nearly twice the amount of vitamin K as most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables. In addition to the above-cited nutrients, according to our Food Rating System, kale is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin C, and manganese; a very good source of copper, tryptophan, calcium, vitamin B6, and potassium; and a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin B2, protein, vitamin B1, folate, phosphorous, and vitamin B3.

All health experts say dark green leafy vegetables are good for you, therefore I make sure I include this black Cavalo Nero kale in my diet. Kale is a very versatile vegetable, and I am still having fun discovering new ways to prepare it : raw, juiced, blended, cooked, sautéed.

Whole Roasted Spiced Cauliflower Recipe

Summary: This Whole Roasted Spiced Cauliflower might just be the ultimate Christmas Dinner or Sunday Lunch : It is plant-based, gluten free, grain-free, nut-free, it is unusual, yet a true crowd pleaser that the whole family can enjoy together. Roasted cauliflower really does taste amazing, and the curry power and lemon juice deliver a zest and spiciness that go really well with the kale salad. The cauliflower (whole or even chopped) will be perfect on it's own for a quick week-night dinner, but be sure to make the accompanying raw, wilted kale and pomegranate salad for a real 'piece de resistance' main course. The recipe might sound advanced, but it really only takes 5 minutes to make the curry paste and coat the cauliflower, pop it into the oven and then the oven does all the work and it is all waiting time.

Raw Ultimate Green Juice Recipe

Summary: This is perhaps the ultimate green juice. It is packed full of nutrition with a wide variety of vegetables and dark leafy greens, yet it tastes absolutely delicious. Green juice does grow on you, so if your taste buds do not find this quite palatable yet, please feel free to add a green apple. But please remember that when juicing fruits you deprive yourself of the valuable fibre that stop the fructose causing your blood sugar levels to raise rapidly, which in time leads to insulin resistance and weight gain. So do add an apple if you need it, but aim to reduce it to half an apple, then no apple at all ... Choose all your produce organic, seasonal and local if possible.
