Nourishment Notes


Kale is an incredible source of vitamin K and may also help to lower cholesterol. Kale also contains many antioxidants, which helps to protect cells and may be anti-inflammatory, an important quality for those with rheumatoid arthritis.


Kimchi is a flavorful Korean side dish, traditionally made from fermented cabbage. The fermentation process promotes the growth of healthy bacteria, or probiotics. Probiotics are important for gut health and may improve immunity and the anti-inflammatory response.

RA Cooking Tips
