Prioritising our health and wellbeing has never been more important than right now, with the coronavirus crisis surrounding us from all quarters… and now’s the perfect time to start doing some research into nutrition to find out which foods are amazing at giving your immune system a bit of a boost, helping to keep you fit and healthy.
It’s important that we try to reduce the stress and strain being put on the NHS at the moment, so staying at home and self-isolating is essential. While it’s amazing that we have the NHS in this country, we all have an individual responsibility to keep ourselves as fit and healthy as we possibly can so that hospitals are able to help those who truly need it.
Diet plays a hugely important part in keeping our bodies in excellent working order, so sit down and have a look at what you and your family are eating to see if there is any room for improvement.
The Winning Formula... KALE!
One particular veggie that you might want to stock up on is kale, which is one of the healthiest ingredients you can eat, full of all types of amazing nutrients that will help keep you in excellent health, energised and raring to go!
Kale has the vitamins A, K, C, B6, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium and magnesium in it, as well as iron, vitamin B3, phosphorus, B2 and B1, with very little fat… and even better the fat contains omega-3 fatty acid, which can help with promoting good heart health!
It also couldn’t be easier to start adding more and more kale to your diet - you can just chuck it in some salads and away you go. Or you could see if you can find it in some delicious juices.
Did you know that 150ml of pure unsweetened fruit or vegetable juice counts as one of your five a day? Perfect!
