Kale has been labelled a 'superfood,' and it's easy to see why. Packed with Vitamin K, kale can help to reduce inflammation therefore lowering blood pressure and cholestral levels.
Cauliflower is loaded with vitamin C which keeps infection at bay, improves the strength of your bones and teeth as well as quickening the body's ability to repair wounds. The fibre content per 100g of cauliflower is 12g so it will greatly help with digestive system support.
