Personal Trainer Quick Tip

Kohlrabi? The New Super Food?

What is Kohlrabi?

Kohlrabi is a vegetable.  It is a member of the mustard family and is related to wild cabbage and wild turnips. It looks similar to a turnip and has a round bulb with a stem, and large, edible leaves. The skin of kohlrabi can be white, purple, or green, but the flesh is always white.

The Health Benefits of Kohlrabi!

Super food Benefit #1:

High in potassium, which helps reduce blood pressure and increase bone mineral density. The vitamin C content of kohlrabi is even greater than orange juice! It is also a great source of fiber and water content.

Super food Benefit #2:

Kohlrabi can be beneficial for those with diabetes and hypoglycemia. It’s nutrition content can help stabilize blood sugar. It can also be effective against edema (swelling), candida (fungal infections), and viral infections.

How to Prepare and Eat Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi can be prepared and eaten in many different ways. Both the flesh and leaves can be eaten. They can be consumed either raw or cooked. The flesh can be cut into slices and eaten with some hummus or dip.  A quick, easy, and tasty way to prepare the leaves is to saute them in some garlic and olive oil, which tastes great and is still nutritious!

Next time you’re going grocery shopping put kohlrabi on the list. It’s a change up from spinach or kale, but still boasts superfood properties!
