"Nutrient-rich kale is hidden in this delicious banana smoothie. . . perfect for those of us who have a hard time getting our daily dose of veggies!"

Kale is not only one of the more beautiful cruciferous vegetables, but it also one of the most nutritious. Here are nine reasons to eat kale, and eat it often.
One cup of kale has only 36 calories and zero grams of fat, which makes it a great diet aid. Furthermore, one cup contains nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. Finally, kale contains the glucosinolate isothiocyanate (ITC) that fights the formation of H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), a bacterial growth in the stomach lining that can lead to gastric cancer.

- 1 banana
- 1 peeled orange
- 1/2 bunch kale
- 1/2 bunch romaine
- 16 ounces orange juice

Place all of the above in a blender, blend and enjoy.

Keeping Children Safe
“Don’t talk to strangers; Stay inside where it’s ‘safe’; Stay off the internet chat lines. Look out! Be careful.” Such well-meaning comments can go a long way to undermining our child’s self-confidence, and our fear for their safety may shut down the greatest chance of survival our child has in any situation – their connection to their own instincts which have the ability to keep them safe.
