Accidental Brilliance Superfood + Supplement Series...Kale

So if there was a superstar in the vegetable world, Kale is it. The benefits are pretty incredible from being a great source of fiber, vitamin A, C and K as well as omega 3 fatty-acids and sulfur. The high fiber helps to lower cholesterol, the omega 3 fatty-acids helps to regulate the body's inflammatory process, add in the vitamin K and the body is able to fight  against excessive inflammatory related problems like arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders. The high sulfur content helps the body in detoxification and it lands pretty high up on the list of cancer preventing foods. I say this stuff should find it's way into everyone's diet and this simple recipe for a batch of kale chips could not be an easier way to get it in...
