Programme 3: Week 6 update

Nutrition:  - Kale, why eat kale?

Kale is very high in nutrients and very low in calories, making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.  It has several powerful antioxidants, which have numerous beneficial effects on health

Kale is extremely high in vitamins C and K.  A single cup of raw kale contains more vitamin C than an orange, and 7 times the RDA for vitamin K.  Kale is also very high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that the body can turn into vitamin A

Kale contains substances that can lower cholesterol levels in the body.  Steamed kale is particularly effective and has been shown to help fight cancer.
