The benefits of indulging in these delicious veggies
Kale is often considered to be one of the most nutrient-dense food types in the world. In addition to this, it contains large amounts of vitamin C. For detox purposes, this vegetable is an excellent source of antioxidants that help your body to process stored waste. The health benefits include its ability to help to lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of developing heart disease. A definitely yummy way to live healthier.
How kale became a superfood
This dark green leafy vegetable was first grown as a food source in Asia and the Mediterranean around 2000 BC. By the 4th century BC, Ancient Greeks had gone on to cultivate both curly and flat-leaf varieties of this cruciferous vegetable. Although this type of vegetable became just another leafy green food, it gained immense popularity in 2012 when more people became aware of the wonderful properties it contains.
The best preparations for weight-loss and detox
There are a variety of different things you can do with kale to help you boost your health. The first and easiest is a simple salad made from the shredded leaves of this vegetable marinated in some lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Alternatively, you could add your kale to a fruit smoothie. Another delicious option is a soup made from this leafy vegetable along with lentils and carrots.
How to boost the positive effects
If you are considering a detox, then a vegetarian diet is the way to go, at least for a short period of time. You will also have to cut excess fats and include whole grains by eating more porridge, brown rice and legumes. It is also a good idea to include a large amount of fresh fruit as these will help to increase your fibre intake as well as your hydration levels. Although vegetables are a good idea, try to stay away from starchy vegetables while on detox mode.
