1. Kale

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.

Greens could save the nutritional problems of the human race if more people would just eat them. Beet greens are excellent too. Thanks for the reminder to eat my leafy greens :)
