5 Killer Kale Recipes

September 13, 2011

I feel like kale is the vegetable that is always "left-out."  When we think of vegetables, kale is rarely one that we consider eating more of.  Kale is part of the cabbage family and is high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and other vitamins and minerals.  These five recipes will change your mind about kale and have you eating it all the time.
