Green Kale

Kale may be the trendiest veggie of the 21st century, but it has staying power for a reason. It’s been served since Roman times and with just 34 calories in one cup, it’s packed with nutrients. It’s particularly high in vitamin A and vitamin C: just one serving has more than 100 percent of your recommended daily value for both vitamins.

Kale’s health benefits can be multiplied depending on what foods you pair it with - like avocado can make fat-soluble carotenoids more available to the body. Think of these combinations as a one-two punch for your benefit.

Handling Tips

Choose crisp, blue-green small-to-medium leaves while shopping. Refrigerate your kale unwashed and store up to 4 days. When you cook your kale, wash it in warm water and cut a v-shape at the end of stems for even cooking. Blanching kale can remove bitterness, but avoid boiling it to preserve nutrients.
