Benefit 10 of eating Kale - Weightloss
Kale Should Be Able to Help You Lose Weight
Kale has several properties that make it a weight loss friendly food.
It is very low in calories but still provides significant bulk that should help you feel full.
Because of the low calorie and high water content, kale has a low energy density. Eating plenty of foods with a low energy density has been shown to aid weight loss in numerous studies
Kale also contains small amounts of protein and fiber. These are two of the most important nutrients when it comes to losing weight.
Although there is no study directly testing the effects of kale on weight loss, it makes sense that it could be a useful addition to a weight loss diet.
SUMMARY As a nutrient-dense, low-calorie food, kale makes an excellent addition to a weight loss diet.
The Bottom Line
Fortunately, adding kale to your diet is relatively simple. You can simply add it to your salads or use it in recipes as I have posted for the last week.
A popular snack is kale chips, where you drizzle some extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil on your kale, add some salt, and then bake in it an oven until dry.
It tastes absolutely delicious and makes a great crunchy, super healthy snack.
A lot of people also add kale to their smoothies in order to boost their nutritional value.
At the end of the day, kale is definitely one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet.
If you want to dramatically boost the amount of nutrients you take in, consider loading up on kale.

4 cups clean well-chopped kale (I used curly kale)
1 can tuna, drained of its liquid
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 hardboiled eggs, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup sliced celery
1 tin green beans, drained or cooked from fresh
1/4 cup roasted shelled sunflower seeds, sesame seeds (or both) or pecans
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons capers, drained
olive oil, lemon juice, rice vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Toss kale in a large bowl with a splash of olive oil and rice vinegar. Season with a bit of salt and pepper and set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, combine tuna and half of the sliced boiled egg. Add the green onion and parsley and a bit of olive oil and use the back of a fork to work the mixture together, breaking up the tuna and eggs. Add the sesame or sunflower seeds (or both), cheese, and capers. Add a bit more olive oil if needed and fresh lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add the tuna mixture to the kale bowl. Toss to combine. Before serving top with the remaining egg. Enjoy!
