His Name is Kale

Stephanie MarinelloYessss and we are pretty serious.

When I’m off on my date nights, now you know who it’s with. It’s with Kale.

Kale makes me feel smarter, healthier, I find that my skin radiates and I feel satisfied. PERFECT addition to my life I must say. Every girl should be made to feel this way, wouldn’t you agree?

Well I wouldn’t be completely telling the truth if I didn’t tell you that kale is in fact, not a man but a leafy green vegetable. I know, I know i’m a dork but it is such a great addition to my diet that if you were to try and eat more of only one vegetable I would recommend this one. Let me tell you why:

  • Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat. One cup is 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber.
  • High in iron.
  • High in vitamin K.
  • Filled with powerful antioxidants, especially the good cancer fighting ones like carotenoids and flavonoids.
  • Kale is a great anti-inflammatory food that works wonders on acne, improving our skin with vitamin A especially.
  • Kale is high in calcium, has more calcium than milk
  • And is high in vitamin C.

Below are some outtake shots (pictures that were not selected) that I was able to get my hands on from a talk and photoshoot in which the models invited had to represent their favorite vegetable or fruit in a fun way to motivate and talk about nutrition. I spoke about kale and going on date nights with kale 😉

I will share the easiest and quickest way I prepare kale in the next post! Enjoy!
