On Monday, our Fitness Coordinator, Melissa and Restaurant Catering Manager, Meggin discussed the benefits of eating kale. Kale is a leafy vegetable that grows best in cold weather, so it’s ideal for the fall and winter.
Residents learned that kale is packed with Vitamins K, C, and A and the high fiber content helps reduce cholesterol! Kale is at its finest state when cooked because the act of cooking actually releases more of the beneficial vitamins.
Meggin and Melissa prepared a delicious white bean soup with kale and turkey sausage for residents in attendance to enjoy.
