Have you added the latest trendy health food to your diet? Maybe it's time to try kale which is packed with protein, vitamins A, C and K. It's also beneficial as an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory. But there's just one problem for some: they don't like the taste of the fiber-rich leafy green. A great way to introduce kale into your diet - and your weight loss routine, as the vegetable is considered to be "negative calo- ries," meaning your body burns more calories digesting it than it takes in - is by adding it to a smoothie. So, get out your blender, add some kale to fresh or frozen fruit, and enjoy fuller health benefits. Brilah Harris is a writer from Newburgh and a regular contributor to Hudson Valley Parent.
