KALE CHIPS

22 Nov

 

Okay , So KALE CHIPS ??????????       ARE YOU KIDDING ME OR WHAT  ?

Well  settle down , here are some facts about KALE that some might not be aware of    – although it’s common knowledge …….

 

Kale is a popular vegetable, a member of the cabbage family (Brassica oleracea).

It is related to cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens and brussels sprouts.

Kale, like other leafy greens, is very high in antioxidants.

This includes beta-carotene, vitamin C, as well as various flavonoids and polyphenols .

Guess what… kale actually contains bile acid sequestrants, which can lower cholesterol levels. (This should lead to a reduced risk of heart disease over time.)

The truth is… kale is actually among the world’s best sources of Vitamin C.    A cup of raw kale even contains more vitamin C than a whole orange !

 

So  KALE  ,         You can go and see it because it is a real place.

Kale Township is a township in Kale District in the Sagaing Division of Burma (Myanmar)
