This cabbage family super green kale is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants etc. More importantly, it’s packed with many other nutritional benefits which is why it is a superfood. Believe it or not, this healthy green is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids too. If you are adapting a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle and want to incorporate healthy fat in your diet, include some kale in your diet. While the varieties of kale are plenty, I like the curly variety and the baby kale greens. For this recipe, I have used the baby kale and curly varieties.

Including More Veggies in Diet:

If you have ever been to a nutritionist, then you must know how important it is to include two third of our plate with fruits and veggies. Vegetables are low in calorie, less in fat and high in fiber, which certainly make them perfect for including in a weight loss diet.

Apart from offering the best nutritional benefits, there are many other reasons to include more veggies in your diet. Including rainbow colored vegetables provides tremendous health benefits too. Eating more vegetables will lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. These fiber rich foods have tremendous effect on lowering the risk of type-2 diabetes. Although vegetables have carbs, they seem lowering blood sugar even after consumption. (if you don’t munch on more starchy vegetables such as potatoes). People with high blood pressure will be benefited with the high potassium content of vegetables. High potassium also reduces the risk of kidney diseases too. Read more here.
