Nutritional Information: Rising star kale certainly deserves its place in the spotlight. Rich in vitamins A, C, K, B6, as well as calcium and magnesium. It definitely earns its title as a “superfood” — it’s packed with anti-cancer and cholesterol-lowering antioxidants. These antioxidants also promote heart and eye health.

Serving Suggestions: As such a popular veggie, there are so many ways to make kale, from raw in salads to sauteed in olive oil. Check out 17 ways to cook with kale here.
