Good Eyesight

Kale is an essential diet when it comes to supporting our senses of sight. A cup of kale contains 206 percent of vitamin A which helps to protect the surface of the eye. Kale, also, is an excellent source of lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that are highly concentrated in the retina of the eyes. Your body does not produce these carotenoids, so you have to get them from the food you eat. What an easy way to get these carotenoids.

Kale chips are a very delicious and healthy meal but are so difficult to store. Keeping the kale leaves crispy starts before the preparation of the meal. Start by drying your leaves entirely before cooking them. Also, allow your chips cool to room temperature before storing them in an airtight container. Introducing uncooked rice to the bottom of the box will help prevent sogginess. Reheat the in an oven at a low temperature for 15 to 20 minutes to freshen up stored kale chips.

Kale is the way!
