McDonald's has jumped onto the superfood bandwagon, and has added healthy and popular vegetable kale into some of its menu items.
By Lilley: (NaturalNews) Not too long ago, McDonald's ran a commercial showing a close-up of a burger while the voiceover declared, "This is not Greek yogurt, nor will that ever be kale." The ad mocked those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle; such people were told to "avert their eyes" from the burger. "You can't get juiciness like this from soy or quinoa," the commercial continued.
Kale is a form of wild cabbage with purple or green leaves and was one of the commonest green vegetables in Europe until the latter part of the Middle Ages. It grows well into winter, and some growers even claim that it tastes sweeter when subjected to frost. Cooked kale is a popular addition to potato and meat-based dishes; though - like all leafy green vegetables - it can also be eaten raw.
You’ve probably heard of Kale by now and are probably soaked in information regarding Kale benefits and how great it is for your health. Kale has recently been buzzed about as one of nature’s hugest leafy green super foods. It makes sense, right? This dark leafy green is jam packed with nutrients and vitamins (list incoming) and is pretty tasty when it’s prepared properly. So, let’s take a look at the benefits of Kale and a Kale Chips Recipe that will explode your taste buds, too.
There is a great deal to be said for kale. Kale is recognized as one of the most nutrient rich foods on the planet. The benefits of kale are multitudinous; it possesses antioxidant properties and beneficial phytochemicals and also serves as an anti-inflammatory agent. When consumed on a regular basis, kale is believed to have the capacity to help lower cholesterol level and even prevent cancer.
Kale is actually an earlier form of the cruciferous cabbage family. In addition to its high level of nutrients, now its carotenoid content is associated with mood elevation.
While there's no official definition of the term superfood, the generally implied idea is a fruit or vegetable that is particularly nutritious and beneficial to your overall health and wellness, with high phytonutrient content. By that definition, kale should have a spot in the top ten. If you want to be healthy, there's no avoiding the leafy green vegetables, and kale is one of the most nourishing. It is a good source of calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, iron, folic acid, amino acids, antioxidant flavonoids, and lutein. It is easy to prepare, versatile, and delicious.
