Author’s Note: I discovered the magical Kale properties about few years back. It has tons of magnesium and Omega-3s that most migraine sufferers need to prevent their attacks. Here I am discussing its benefits for my readers:
Kale Has Highest Nutrient Density
With Kale you get nutritional bang for your buck. How? Just one cup of raw kale has only 35 calories yet it contains 134 percent of vitamin C, 670 percent of vitamin K, 223 percent of vitamin A plus folate, iron, magnesium, omega-3s, iron, calcium, fiber, and about 4 grams of protein. BAM! That’s awesome nutrient density.
But the real Kale’s secret power lies in its phytonutrients. Those miraculous molecules that are known as “antioxidants”.
Kale is rich in phytonutrients, which improve the liver detox ability, quells inflammation and can even protect brain cells from stress. Kale directly talks to your DNA and tells it to sing that slow, sweet song of happiness and health.
Kale Is An Awesome Deal
A tasty bunch of 12-20 organic kale leaves costs two bucks. It’s one of the cheapest superfoods that’s accessible to all.
Kale Offers Unmatched Culinary Versatility
Name any other green that you can seamlessly whip into your smoothie, amp up your juice, toss in your salad, bake as a chip, saute as a side, or mix in a cocktail.
You Can Absorb The Nutrients In Raw Kale
Cooking kale frees many nutrients like magnesium and also decreases others, such as heat sensitive folate. But when you eat kale in any other form, it delivers protein, fiber, omega-3s, and a bevy of minerals and vitamins. Try mixing it up! I’ve consumed them as kale salads, sauteed kale, kale smoothies, and kale chips.
Now that you know that kale is your migraine superfood, you need some tips to successfully work it into your diet:
* There’s no need to eat a giant trough of kale salad with each meal or swig it down with a smile. Take it on consistent bases just twice of thrice a week, and it will work its magic.
* Kale newbie? Go slow. You can start with few kale chips, not that giant kale salad.
With kale consumption you introduce more roughage into your diet. Sometimes you can feel bloated even with a small amount. So if kale isn’t part of your diet, give your body some time to adjust.
* Kale may not suit everyone.
All those who’re taking blood thinners, those who find it bitter, or those who have cruciferous vegetable allergy (some people are allergic to kale and other crucifers like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage), should avoid kale.
