OK, so I have to admit it: Up until a couple of years ago, I had never even heard of kale. When I did finally try it, though, I fell head over heels in ♥!
So, what is kale exactly? It’s a tasty leafy green vegetable loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, fiber, iron, and calcium! Basically, it’s a nutrient-packed powerhouse!
This “super food” is also super-versatile in the kitchen—it can be used in tons of recipes, like smoothies, juices, salads, stir-fries, and soups.
Want to know my fave ways to eat kale? I’m a big fan of cutting it into small pieces and using it in salads instead of lettuce. I also ♥ adding it to veggie soup and tofu scramble. YUM!
So, what are you waiting for?! Grab some kale from the grocery store and get cooking!
Let us know your fave kale recipe in the comments section below.
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
