Move over, lettuce! Red Russian/Curly Kale is a speciality crop that is jam packed with nutrition. This versatile leafy green contains tremendous amounts of vitamins A, C, K and B6 as well as manganese, iron, copper and calcium. For those following a vegan or non-dairy inclusive diet, this ingredient may be a good way to consume calcium for bone and teeth maintenance. Kale is quite low in calories but high in fiber, which means it will keep you full without breaking the calorie bank.
This is a refreshing smoothie I make once in a while to feel extra healthy! It might seem like an odd combination of ingredients, but it’s super tasty. You can also get experimental and try it with flavored yogurt and other fruits too.
