If you look at any list of foods ordered by its nutrient density, you will always see
Kale topping the list. With its incredibly high amount of vitamins K, A, and C, and over 45 different flavonoids, Kale is a must eat food for kids today.
Research is showing the health benefits of including Kale in your diet include:
- Antioxidant properties
- Anti-inflammatory benefits
- Anti-Cancer qualities
A great way to introduce your kids to the flavor of Kale, is to make Kale chips. In Dr. Josh Axe’s cookbook, he had an easy recipe.
- 1 bunch Kale
- 2 TBL grapeseed oil
- 1 TBL lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop kale into 1/2 inch pieces. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and massage the oil, lemon juice, and sea salt into the kale using your hands. Place on parchment lined baking sheets for 12 minutes.
So, my kids are a little skeptical. Your kids however, are most likely more open minded about the idea of kale chips, so give them a try!
