Frequently Asked Questions
Below are a few smart questions from my friends with answers that might help you understand the nutritional benefits of my favorite best-tasting salad. Eating nutritionally dense foods means a LOT of health benefits for you and your family. Keep eating that kale and Swiss chard and live with less chronic pain!
Yes! Salad dressing, particularly store-bought salad dressing can cause inflammation if it has a high content of sugar, dairy, or unhealthy oils. The best bet is to consume salad dressings that have no dairy or sugar and use olive oil that is Omega-3-rich.
No. Although honey is linked to many proven health benefits, it is not considered an anti-inflammatory agent. Too much of any type of sugar or sucrose – including honey – is inflammatory. Use honey in salad dressings and cooking moderately or not at all if you are concerned about inflammation.
Most specifically, kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. Consuming kale regularly means you are getting a healthy dose of antioxidants and Omega-3 as well as Vitamins A, K, C, B3, B6, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorous.
