Kale kicks a**.

I didn’t grow up eating kale.

Honestly, I didn’t even know this leafy powerhouse of a leafy green vegetable existed until I was approaching middle age—even though it’s been cultivated for over 2,000 years! Where had kale been hiding? (Admittedly, I didn’t even know about yogurt or lox and bagels until I went to college… apparently I was leading a sheltered existence.)

And now kale is everywhere! In fact, I just put kale in the chili I made last night as an experiment. And you know what? It was delish. Plus, it was a sneaky way to slip this superfood into my family’s meal. Bwahaha!

There are so many ways to get kale into our diet: You can buy crunchy kale chips in a multitude of flavors (or make your own)…  toss it in smoothies and juices… or sautee it with garlic and sea salt. Yum!

Check out this infographic for more benefits of kale and ways it can kick up your nutrition.

(Be sure to choose organic kale! I mean, if you’re going to be healthy, why bother with the pesticides?)
