Kale, a nutrient-rich superfood, has been getting a lot of hype lately as one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. And for good reason! Not only is kale rich in antioxidants and high in vitamins A, C and K, but its also a good source for calcium, fiber, folate, iron, potassium and manganese. Some health benefits from incorporating kale into your diet include cancer protection, lowered cholesterol and detoxification.
It’s no wonder then how I ended up with a gigantic bag of kale in my shopping cart on my latest trip to Costco. Since I’m trying to use it all up before it goes bad, kale is playing the starring role in this week’s menu at our house. I can’t wait for its superpowers to kick in!
