Kale is one of the healthiest and nutritious plant foods. It is low in calories, high in fiber and has zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It is great for aiding in digestion and elimination with its great fiber content.

Peaches also offer a rich treasure of minerals such as calcium, potassium,magnesium, iron, manganese, phosphorous, zinc, and copper. Peaches are low in calories, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol, and are a good source of dietary fiber.

Pears are one of the highest-fiber fruits and contain a fair amount of vitamins C, K, B2, B3, B6, along with folate. The phytonutrients found in pears are also associated with preventing stomach cancer and it’s a hypoallergenic fruit , which means those with food sensitivities can usually eat pears with no adverse effects. Don’t peel your pears! Quercetin is another antioxidant found in the skin of pears and is beneficial for cancer prevention and reducing blood pressure.

Walnuts are an excellent source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 essential fatty acids, in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Walnuts are also rich in antioxidants, including being a very good source of manganese and copper. They are also a good source of molybdenum and the B vitamin biotin.
