Kale is a dark green leafy nutritional powerhouse! It contains vitamin A, C, E, K as well as calcium, magnesium, B6, potassium, iron, omega 3 fatty acids and many more. It truly is one of the healthiest vegetables on earth! What are the best ways to consume kale? You can make kale juice, kale chips, steam kale, sauté kale or eat it raw in salads.
Here are 5 health benefits of Kale:
1. Anti-inflammatory
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are not produced in your body therefore you need to get them from your diet. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and autoimmune disorders.
2. Cancer Prevention
Kale contains antioxidants including carotenoids and flavonoids. Antioxidants protect our cells from unstable molecules called free radicals. Antioxidants are associated with many of the anti-cancer health benefits. Kale has been shown to ward off breast, colon, ovarian, prostate and bladder cancer.
3. Lowers Cholesterol
Kale contains dietary fiber, which has been shown to help reduce cholesterol.  Fiber reduces the absorption of the bad “LDL” cholesterol into your bloodstream.  
4. Prevents Bone Loss
One cup of kale contains more than 90 mg of calcium. Studies have shown that calcium helps prevent osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and rickets. Vitamin D is required to absorb calcium so enjoy a delicious kale salad with salmon.
5. Reduces the Risk of Macular Degeneration
Kale is rich in lutein which is a carotenoid that protects against macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 60.

Flame Retardant As An Ingredient In Soda

What do Mountain Dew, Fanta, Sunkist, and some Fresca and Gatorade flavors have in common? Clearly, they all contain lots of sugar and artificial ingredients, but did you know they contain a controversial synthetic chemical called brominated vegetable oil (BVO)? 

This chemical was first introduced as a flame retardant but is now in food.

"BVO has been shown to bioaccumulate in human tissue and breast milk, and animal studies have found it causes reproductive and behavioral problems in large doses." -Dr. Mercola.

Benefits Of Drinking Lemon Water

Here is some good info on Lemons... I Love Lemons!

10 Reasons Why You Should Drink Warm Lemon Water in the Morning

Instead of getting a cup of coffee, why not replace it with a warm water lemon drink? Below are the good factors to consider.

1. Boosts your immune system: Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.

2. Balances pH: Drink lemon water everyday and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized.

3. Helps with weight loss: Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.

4. Aids digestion: Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

5. Is a diuretic: Lemons increase the rate of urination in the body, which helps purify it. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.

6. Clears skin: The vitamin C component helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well. It can actually be applied directly to scars to help reduce their appearance.

7. Freshens breath: Not only this, but it can help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. The citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should monitor this.

8. Relieves respiratory problems: Warm lemon water helps get rid of chest infections and halt those pesky coughs. It’s thought to be helpful to people with asthma and allergies too.

9. Keeps you zen: Vitamin C is one of the first things depleted when you subject your mind and body to stress. As mentioned previously, lemons are chock full of vitamin C.

10. Helps kick the coffee habit: After taking a glass of warm lemon water, most people suggests of less craving for coffee in the morning.

Why it has to be warm water not cold? Cold water likely provides a shock or stress factor to the body. It takes energy for your body to process cold water.

The recipe is really simple - a cup of warm water (not hot) and the juice from half of a lemon.
