Kale Is A Superfood

Here’s why you should be eating more of it! 





At only 33 calories, one cup of raw kale has: Nearly 3 grams of protein2.5 grams of fiber (which helps manage blood sugar and makes you feel full)Vitamins A, C, and KFolate, a B vitamin that’s key for brain developmentAlpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. (While kale has far less omega-3 than fish, it is another way to get some of this healthy fat into your diet.Lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that give kale its deep, dark green coloring and protect against macular degeneration and cataracts minerals including phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and zinc.  Types of KaleKale can be curly, flat, or even have a bluish tint mixed in with the green. The flavors differ, so try them all.

Eat Something Before You Work Out

You should always eat something before exercising so your body has enough fuel to power through your workout.

A few of my favorites:

BananasDairy free yogurt with granola and berries.A smoothie with power greensOatmeal.Homemade energy balls or bars.Avocado toast.English muffin with nut butter add sliced bananas for more calories.  FYI, good caloriesaren't necessarily made up of low-calorie foods. Many good calories come from high-calorie and even high-fat foods. However, bad calories are those that don't provide your body with good nutrition. These come from things like processed foods, sugar, refined flours, unhealthy fats and artificial ingredients.

Staying Motivated On The Veganism Journey

People ask me all the time how I stay sane on this journey of veganism. Here's a few tips to help you stay content and healthy
Find out where you can eat out ahead of time, especially if you're traveling from out of town. Believe it not, there are actually cities that don't have vegan restaurants. Take the time to learn how to cook new dishes! Eating the same meals over and over will only make you lose your zeal. Be prepared if you go out for the day. Meal prepping is extremely Important, especially if you are just venturing off into this journey. If you know you'll be out for the day, pack lunch plus snacks and place them in a cooler in your trunk.Stay informed about vegan nutrition. Everything that looks nutritious or vegan friendly, is not! Read your labels.Remind yourself why you went vegan in the first place. We wont be motivated, that's when discipline kicks in and remember IT TAKES TIME!Find like-minded people who wont deter from your goal of staying healthy…

Why Go Vegan?

We have no need for animal products The killing of farmed animals is unnecessary and definitely a cruel act. We simply do it for pleasure or traditional reasons. There is no proof, what so ever, that human beings must eat meat, dairy or eggs, in order to be healthy and thriving. By going vegan you lower your risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes and treat or reverse other current health conditions. Enjoy this song by Mr. Macka B! The benefits of eating limes
