(NaturalNews) There is a great deal to be said for kale. Kale is recognized as one of the most nutrient rich foods on the planet. The benefits of kale are multitudinous; it possesses antioxidant properties and beneficial phytochemicals and also serves as an anti-inflammatory agent. When consumed on a regular basis, kale is believed to have the capacity to help lower cholesterol level and even prevent cancer.

This super food is also rich in calcium, sodium, copper, potassium, manganese, phosphorus and iron.

With all the benefits that are associated with kale, it makes perfect sense that you should find as many ways as you can to get as much of it into your system as possible. This article will discuss 5 practical ways to add kale to your diet. It is important to remember to consume organic kale rather than conventional kale. You will also find that kale will be more digestible when you find ways to break it down before eating it. You can use something with an acidic property, such as apple cider vinegar or lemon, or you can chop it up.

Below, you will find five non-hassle ways to add kale to your diet.

  • Smoothies

Simply add two to five stems of kale, with leaves attached, to a fruit or protein smoothie. Use a high speed blender to break down the stems. This blending process will also help in making the kale more digestible. You can tweak the smoothie in a number of ways until you reach the desired taste.
  • Chips

Try making kale chips. They are not difficult to make at all. Remove the leaves from the stems and tear them into relatively large pieces, (roughly 3 inches in diameter) because they will shrink. Toss the leaves with a light salt and olive oil. You can also use your choice of herbs. You can then place the leaves in the oven or a dehydrator if you have one. Set the temperature at the lowest possible setting and leave the door slightly cracked. Once the chips are crisp, you can remove them, and they are ready for consumption.
  • Juice

You can add kale to a natural juice, such as vegetable or grapefruit juice, which allows for quick absorption by your body. These drinks are also highly nutritious. If you prefer to have your juice with a sweeter taste, you can always add a beet or a green apple as a sweetener.
  • Salad

There are multitudinous recipes for kale salad. The choice is yours. You can choose a stem-included recipe or choose to chop it up into fine pieces. What you add is totally up to you.
  • Substitute

Another great way to integrate kale into your diet is by substituting it for some of your other green vegetables, such as collard greens or spinach. You can even make a kale soup.

There are numerous ways to integrate kale into your daily diet, but these listed methods are simple, practical and easy to execute. With all of the valuable benefits that are associated with kale, it is of immense importance to find ways that you are comfortable with to integrate it into your diet.
