They are a good source of fibre to encourage a healthy bowel and help reduce the risk of many modern diseases.
It’s not only dairy products that supply calcium, leafy green vegetables like kale, cabbage, bok choy and collards also contain high amounts of this important mineral.
Leafy greens contain good fats, for example, a serving of kale contains 121 mg of omega 3 fatty acids and 92.4mg of omega 6 fatty acids. They also have anti-inflammatory compounds which reduce inflammation though the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they contain.
