KALE

KALE is a powerhouse of nutrition – one of the healthiest veggies on the planet and super-tasty too! A single cup of raw kale (about 67 grams or 2.4 ounces) contains  – Vitamin A: 206% of the RDA (from beta-carotene), Vitamin K: 684% of the RDA, Vitamin C: 134% of the RDA, Vitamin B6: 9% of the RDA, Manganese: 26% of the RDA, Calcium: 9% of the RDA, Copper: 10% of the RDA, Potassium: 9% of the RDA, and Magnesium: 6% of the RDA.Then it contains 3% or more of the RDA for Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Iron and Phosphorus.

How to Store: Refrigerate in a plastic bag – do not wash until ready to use.

How to Prepare: So many ways! I like to add it to most everything! One way to have it handy is to wash, chop, toss with olive oil and roast on a sheet pan for 5 minutes at 475. It keeps well for a week in the fridge, and you can add it to burritos, alongside your eggs for breakfast, dress it with sauce to go with rice – endless!  Then there is our FAVORITE Massaged Kale Salad – just need oil, soy, lemon juice, garlic and parmesan. So good!  Like a Caesar! On the off chance you have leftovers, they are superb the  next day.
