Kale, one of the cruciferous vegetables (like cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli, etc.) is rich in fiber, beta-carotene and numerous flavonoids that can boost your immunity, protect your heart, eyes and breasts, and prevent cancer.
Try one of my favorite detox recipes because it is delicious, super healthy, and it takes only 5 -8 minutes to make.
It can be a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu as well as to any family dinner.
