Perhaps you’ve been told by health professionals that including dark, leafy greens in your diet is important for a variety of reasons, including for the health of your bones, hair and skin. But spinach and kale bring so much more nutrition to your diet.
Spinach provides the body with protein, an assortment of vitamins, iron, and minerals, too.
With kale in the mix, you also get one of the most nutrient-dense veggies on the planet, with a single 2.4oz serving containing more Vitamin K, A, and C than you even need in a day. Beyond the wealth of nutritious elements, kale is also extremely low calorie and contains next to no fat, making it the perfect addition to any diet.
If you haven’t yet heard about quinoa, you certainly owe it to yourself to include this amazing and ancient superfood. Considered to be among the most protein-rich foods available to us, quinoa also represents a “complete protein,” in that the grain contains all nine of the essential amino acids.
