Get your vitamin K
Kale is one of the healthiest veggies you can put on your plate. One serving, which contains just 30 calories, provides a day's worth of vitamin C, twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, and nearly seven times the recommended amount of vitamin K. Add a sizable dose of minerals and healthy fatty acids, and you've got yourself a nutrition powerhouse.
But due to its sturdy texture and slightly bitter flavor, kale can be more challenging to cook with than some other greens. Don't be intimidated! These recipes will give you plenty of tasty ideas for using this superfood in your next meal.
