Detox Your Way Into Fall..with Kale!

Have you ever tried Kale? Kale is is low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Dark leafy greens like kale boost chlorophyll levels in the digestive tract, helping with digestion; the veggie also supports healthy detoxifying functions of the liver, and puts an end to constipation. Clean eating, indeed!

Baked Kale Chips

Who knew detoxing could be so snack friendly? Light and nutty, baked kale chips make a healthy alternative to chips, and satisfy cravings for all things savory, salty, and crispy. Make kale chips work even harder for you by tossing them in curry powder; turmeric promotes healthy liver function, detoxifies the liver, and aids in digestion.

Green Detox Juice

While a liquid only diet is not the smart way to detox, including a nutrient-rich pressed juice into your routine has its benefits. Nutritionist Kimberly Snyder recommends her Glowing Green Smoothie to clients to “rejuvenate skin, fight aging, and increase energy;” she also recommends the juice as part of a healthy weight-loss program. Made up of about 70-percent green vegetables (and 30-percent fruit), this smoothie helps you eat far more kale than you ordinarily could.
