Kale is so amazing for your body, it’s an amazing cleanser for your insides. It’s a big beautiful green leaf that looks pretty cool with a different texture. It’s close to the wild cabbage family but similar to other salad leaf foods. It’s high in vitamin C, vitamin K, lutein, and rich in calcium. It also has sulforaphane  a chemical with a potent anti-cancer properties. Nutrition experts suggest having kale in your diet at least 2-3 times a week. Kale is so great for your immune system and flushing you out. I hear that because of the high vitamin k it really helps you overall be better protected from cancer.
