Pumpkin is a source of fiber, antioxidants, carotenoids, potassium, being rich in vitamins A and C and keeping your vision sharp, your skin smooth and your heart healthy. It helps you stay full longer, so you won’t be munchy after dinner.
Kale is the richest source of vitamin K and contains insane amounts of other vitamins (A, E, C, B1, B2, B3 and B6 ), minerals (manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium and copper), fiber, protein, omega-3 fats and antioxidants. It has anti-inflammatory, cancer-preventive, cholesterol-lowering and detoxification benefits. It provides more nutritional value for fewer calories than any other food!
Polenta is rich in vitamin A and C, as well as caroteinoids being a low carbohydrate and cancer preventive food.
