Dark Leafy Greens
Though all vegetables are nutritious, dark leafy greens like kale stand out as being especially dense with essential vitamins and minerals. One cup of kale alone supplies 10% or more of the daily recommended value for 17 key nutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium as well as folate and vitamin C.
Leafy greens are effective detoxifiers due to their abundance of chlorophyll, which binds with heavy metals and other toxins found in the bloodstream and transports them away from the body. Furthermore, their high carotenoids levels support healthy immunity against oxidative stress which may contribute to autoimmunity.
These nutritious veggies are a staple of the keto diet, helping you reach and maintain a healthy weight by keeping carb intake to an absolute minimum. Experiment with different kinds of leafy greens such as romaine, baby spinach, mesclun, chard and kale for salads, smoothies, soups, stir fries or pasta sauces. Plus don’t forget the tops from carrots, beets, radishes and other root vegetables – they’re full of flavor while helping reduce food waste!
