Today I had Chick Fila as an afternoon snack. I love their little juicy chicken bites but I fell in love with their new choice of side: kale. Yes! Kale! Don't knock it until you try it. They call it, "Crunchy Kale." The name had me curious and I always have fries as a side everytime I eat drive thru. So why not kale? Well, according to Medical News Today, kale contains fiber, antioxidants, calcium, vitamins C and K, iron, and a wide range of other nutrients that can help prevent various health problems.
Antioxidants help the body remove unwanted toxins that result from natural processes and environmental pressures.These toxins, known as free radicals, are unstable molecules. If too many build up in the body, they can lead to cell damage. This may result in health
problems such as inflammation and diseases. Experts believe that
free radicals play a role in the development of cancer. I will definitely look at the healthier choices the next time I eat drive thru.
