Day 157- Nutrition Bite

Eat kale to protect your health! Kale is member of the brassica family with organosulfur compounds that have been the main subject of phytonutrient research. Researchers are currently studying the glucosinolates and the methyl cysteine sulfoxides. Although there are over 100 different glucosinolates in plants, only 10-15 are present in kale and other brassicas. Yet these 10-15 glucosinolates appear to lessen the occurrence of a wide variety of cancers including breast and ovarian cancers. Prevent cancer by eating kale!

Sugar Preacher's Experience
While visiting Seattle last year, I saw a group of people wearing t-shirts printed with "Eat More Kale". At the time, I wasn't familiar with kale, but studied about its properties. I began implementing kale into my diet. Kale provides over 80 nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc..). This cruciferous vegetable has amazing health benefits. Happiness is eating kale!
