Kale is a super nutritious crucifer vegetable; vegetables with several anti-cancer compounds as well has compounds that help the liver to detoxify chemicals and metabolic by-products.

 

Kale is also rich in lutein, a carotenoid that can help to reduce the leading cause of blindness in those age 50 and older: macular degeneration. Smoothies are a great way to sneak vegetables into your diet without even tasting them.
