For pennies a day you can keep the doctor away. Regular consumption of this high protein superfood can also prevent our number one killer: heart disease. This epidemic kills one out of three men and women in America. The first symptom can also be the last: Sudden Death. If Americans centered their meals around a plant-based diet, with a large serving of kale, heart disease could be prevented and even reversed. Kale is a superfood that grows year round in temperate climates.  A plant-based diet centered on this superfood can prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, strokes, obesity and heart disease. This cruciferous vegetable can even prevent prostate, colon, lung and breast cancer.  

What is the nutritional profile of 100 grams of kale that allows for so many health benefits? A 100 gram serving of kale has no saturated fat and no cholesterol and is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and healing phytochemicals. Kale has 308% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1021% of vitamin K! It is rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids and low in harmful omega-6 fatty acids. Kale is rich in anti-cancer phytochemicals such as indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates. It has the perfect percentage of bioavailable protein per calorie for lean muscle growth, on par with human breast milk. As a bonus, this cruciferous vegetables has sulfur compounds that are naturally chelating, detoxing heavy metals.

For pennies a day, keep the doctor away by eating more kale today! I recommend at least 100 grams daily.  The next time a mountebank recommends whey protein or bone broth protein or any of the countless toxic products on the market, remember this: The longest lived and healthiest cultures on the planet follow a plant-based diet.  Heart disease is unheard of in longevity hotspots around the world that eat a whole food plant-based diet. When a quack tries to sell you protein powder or snake oil, just say no! Kale is a superfood that has the perfect protein source and can easily grow in your backyard!

In my next blog, I will share with you my secret kale recipe that will protect your heart. I will also share recent literature on the best method to avoid heart disease: Primordial Prevention. Kale, a plant powered superfood, that grows in your backyard for pennies a day, can show us the way!
