Kale

Kale Facts:

One cup of cooked kale contains 1328% of your daily vitamin K and 354% of your daily vitamin A. Kale has anti-cancer and detoxifying properties. Kale contains over 45 different flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Shopping and Storage Tips: 

  • Kale is available throughout the year, but its peak is mid-winter through the beginning of spring.
  • Smaller leaves will be tenderer and have a milder flavor.
  • Warm temperatures cause kale to wilt, so make sure to store it in a refrigerator.
