Superfood Tip: The power of kale — great for eye health

Advertisement

Leafy greens are extremely nutrient-dense, topping the charts in vitamins A, C, and K, potassium and fiber while only providing 5 to 40 calories per cup! Kale also provides a powerful phytochemical, lutein, which protects the eyes from degeneration.

Kale is a winter green and has the best taste and price during the cooler months. Kale is very hearty giving us many options for preparation. Try kale raw, braised in a stock, sautéed or in a soup.
