Join us Tuesday, February 5th in Prospect Hall at lunch for Strawberry Kale Smoothies!
Kale has recently been added to the list of “superfoods” that people should consume. This is due in big part to the fact that it contains a good amount of Vitamins A & C which act as antioxidants in the body (antioxidants help reduce free radical damage which can lead to cancer and other health issues). According to http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/the-truth-about-kale: 1 cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
So, stop by and try one of our delicious Strawberry Kale Smoothies or make one at home for yourself!
