Kale is a vegetable packed full of good stuff, including vitamins C and K, beta carotene, lutein, and calcium. What can you do with kale? You can make chipsstuffed acorn squash, and wraps!

Avocados are high in fiber and potassium and rich in vitamins B, E, and K. You can use them in tons of recipes, including for wrapsburgers, pesto and salad. Oh, and you can use them to make hair masks too!

Spinach is a pot o’ gold (yep—I just wrote that) when it comes to nutrients: calcium, iron, magnesium … I don’t even have enough room to list them all, so you can find the rest here. And here are some recipes that include spinach: green eggs and hamsoy chorizo hashstuffed shells, tofu-spinach manicotti, and hoagies!

Broccoli is packed with vitamin C and fiber—and it looks like a tree (which is neat). You can use broccoli to make cheesy broccoli, quinoa and veggies with peanut sauce, and tofu and veggie stir-fry.

Limes are a good source of potassium and vitamin C, and they’re delicious when freshly squeezed in water or on many savory dishes, including our chili-lime tofu wrap and tomato, avocado, and lime salad!
