5 Really Good Reasons to Eat KALE This Year

A new school year is beginning and this is the PERFECT time to establish a few new healthy choices for your life.  What do I suggest?  Oh, thank you for asking.  Well here’s one:  

EAT MORE KALE.  

Here are 5 reasons to make KALE your best friend this year…
1. KALE has more vitamin C than an orange.
2. It’s… kind of fatty (in a good way).
3. KALE is the queen of vitamin A.
4. It has more calcium than milk.
5. KALE helps combat inflammation!  And arterial plaque formation!  WOW!  Food friends like avocado, olive oil, and lemon juice go great with kale and make the health-promoting compounds that are in kale even more powerful!  

Oh, be sure to buy this power-house food in the organic section because it is one of the crops to most likely have residual pesticides.

This is what Dr. Oz has to say about the 
amazing benefits of coconut oil:

 

Diabetes This is one fat that diabetics can eat without fear. Not only does it not contribute to diabetes, but it helps regulate blood sugar, thus lessening the effects of the disease. Island people have consumed large amounts of coconut oil for many generations without ever encountering diabetes, but when they abandoned it for other foods and oils, the results were disastrous.

Weight Loss The connection between coconut oil and weight loss is interesting. Farmers in America discovered this early last century when they tried to fatten their cattle by feeding them coconut oil. Instead of gaining weight, their cattle lost weight! So again, this is not news. Do a simple Internet search such as “benefits of coconut oil” and you will get plenty of details.

Bone and Dental Health Coconut oil improves calcium and magnesium absorption in the body, which in turn is greatly beneficial to dental and bone health. The improved calcium absorption created by coconut oil use ceases tooth decay and aids in the development of strong teeth. The combined increased calcium and magnesium absorption are of great benefit to middle-aged women who may become afflicted with osteoporosis.

Coconut Oil: A Good Saturated Fat? You may ask, isn’t coconut oil a saturated fat? And aren’t saturated fats harmful? Yes, coconut oil consists of 90% saturated fats. But whether or not saturated fats are harmful depends on who you ask. Among mainstream nutritionists, the idea that saturated fats cause heart disease is an “absolute truth” that is never questioned. Those who question this belief, however, point out that mankind has been consuming mainly saturated fats – in the form of butter, lard, coconut oil, etc – for thousands of years, yet heart disease was rare before the 1920s. If anything, the rise of heart disease in recent decades may correspond to the increasing use of polyunsaturated vegetable oils like corn, safflower and canola, as well as margarine.
