Kale, Kale, Kale…everyone these days are talking about Kale. Why? Well, one cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
Yet, some people are just scared of it. Perhaps it’s because one may not know how to eat it or cook it. Kale should absolutely be a part of your diet. It is a major super-food and carries tons of antioxidants associated with many anti-cancer health benefits.
Don’t like the way it looks? You obviously haven’t tried it!
