Kale has been the ‘veggie of the moment’ for a while now. With its reputation as a nutrition powerhouse, you can find kale added to just about anything these days from smoothies, chips, and salads to soups and stews. Kale is a cruciferous vegetable. It’s part of the Brassica genus of plants along with broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, arugula, bok choy, radishes, turnips, watercress, and wasabi. It’s low in calories and contains vitamins K, C and A, fiber, and antioxidants that may help protect against macular degeneration, certain cancers, and heart disease.
