Most people have heard by now, just how great kale is for you but only eat it because of this. Let’s be honest here. When was the last time you heard somebody say “mmmm Kale is so yummy, I want a nice big bowl of it!”
Kale is a relation in the family of cabbage or the “Brassica Oleracea” species. Much like its cousins, brussel sprouts and broccoli this family has gotten a fairly bad rap over the years. Unless it’s smothered in melted cheese, good luck trying to get a kid to eat some Brassica Oleracea for dinner tonight!
There also may be some blame that isn’t entirely kale’s fault. Did you know there are ways to alchemize this tough ingredient? Here are a few tips to make kale taste better and get the most nutrition out of it.
We all have those moments where we crave our favourite guilty pleasure. For most, it tends to be something sweet like a big bowl of ice cream or chocolate cake craving that hits out of nowhere. Often the cause of those cravings can be due to an unbalanced day, especially if one of your meals was processed food or high in starch. Eating properly balanced meals not only gives your body energy and fuel for the day but also can help to prevent sugar lows which can cause cravings.
Here are a few tips to help combat sugar cravings naturally.
At Fresh Healthy Cafe, our menu is specially created to offer customers healthy and convenient choices with their meals, while still keeping things delicious. With the warmer weather, most of us have a shift in appetite. Heavy meals are out. Fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables are in! Salads are a great choice for lighter meals but don’t always pack a powerful nutritional punch to give you energy. Our Power Bowls are the perfect mix of smoothie meets parfait. The ultimate superfood blend. What by the way, actually is a superfood? Well, it’s a non-medical term used to describe foods which are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The best of the best you might say.

Fresh Healthy Cafe reFresh Juice Program is now available at select locations! Whether you’re looking for a full on juice cleanse, or to add a healthy boost of vitamins and nutrients into your diet; our all natural, fresh squeezed juices offer nutritional options for everyone.
A juice cleanse is meant to reset eating habits, support your body’s natural detox and kickstart a healthy diet. Most commonly done over a three day period by replacing heavy solid foods with healthy, nutrient-packed fruits and vegetables, your body absorbs energy from the juice. Selecting a balanced juice cleanse program is very important. Just drinking one type of juice combination won’t give you all the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis.
Water is vital for all of your body’s systems to function. When you are dehydrated, your body will will experience critical malfunctions, that could be fatal if left untreated. Dehydration causes a drop in blood volume.
Our bodies are made of up to about 65% water, and blood accounts for most of that. This can cause your body to compensate by increasing your heart rate and overheating your muscles. The imbalance will drop your energy levels, and you will lose mental clarity, as your body focuses on trying to conserve fluid.
Salads get a pretty bad rap for being healthy, but unpalatable. Most people imagine limp, bitter greens, that don’t inspire any culinary delight. Most of us know that we should be eating salad, but do you know why?
