Nourishment Notes


Lentils are a nutritional powerhouse! They are full of protein and fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals, like potassium, folate, and iron. A half cup of cooked lentils has about 8 grams of fiber. Fiber is very helpful for preventing constipation, a common side effect associated with MS. Fiber is also beneficial for improving gut health.


Kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world. It is an incredible source of vitamin K and may also help to lower cholesterol. Kale also contains several types of antioxidants, which helps to protect cells and may be anti-inflammatory, an important quality for those with multiple sclerosis.
