In order to help people live healthier lives, I’m constantly thinking up how to add kale to your diet in Japan. Anyone who knows me knows that I love this rich, green vegetable.
Whenever possible, kale is my go to salad green. I always favor kale over regular lettuce for the extra nutritional punch it packs. My salad bowl almost always contains some kind of kale, and it’s fun to switch it up!
When you’re thinking of how to add kale to your diet in Japan, there are so many options you can choose from: curly kale, purple kale or even the standard, deep green kale. All of these options make for an attractive healthy salad base. The crunch, the vibrant color, and the nutritional value – well what’s not to love?
The Health Benefits of Kale
Why should you add kale to your diet in Japan, you ask? Kale comes from the brassica family of vegetables and is one of the most nutrient-rich vegetables out there. It contains good amounts of iron, vitamins A, C & K, and it is high in antioxidants. Kale also contains minerals such as calcium and omega 3 fatty acids that our bodies need. It is also high in fiber, which is something we all can use more of.
If hunting down fresh kale or making salads is not your thing; fear not as there is now a way to add kale to your diet in Japan and start reaping the rewards this mighty green vegetable offers!
Where To Buy Kale
HealthyTOKYO now carries two organic kale products. The products available on the HealthyTOKYO online store are GreenKale powder as well as GreenKale flakes, for when you want something with a bit more texture. Both products have been cold processed to retain maximum nutrients and the natural, fresh, green flavor that is synonymous with kale.
I had a chance meeting with the purveyor of a fine Danish organic kale powder and I was fascinated with how I could incorporate kale into even more dishes with this powder. The best thing is, this organic kale powder is now available for purchase on the HealthyTOKYO online shop.
Both of the kale products come from Denmark and is produced from handpicked, organic kale that is washed and freeze-dried. Great care is taken during this process so as not to deplete the vitamins and nutrients. For the kale powder, the vegetable is then gently ground into a fine powder that blends easily into all sorts of dishes. The kale flakes are carefully shredded, preserving the natural etymology and texture.
