Kale has risen to fame in the company of other dark-green leafy vegetables such as spinach, swiss chard and collards. This group of plants gained their healthy reputation through the vitamins and special chemicals that they contain, which do everything from keeping your bones strong to reducing your risk of cancer.
Still the question remains: Why has kale’s recent surge in popularity begun to overshadow that of other dark-green leafy vegetables?
While it may be partially fad and partially flavor, in truth, kale’s calcium content alone could have won it a leading role at the dinner table. Thankfully for us though there are even more talents hidden in this tasty green, that make it well-deserving of the hype.
NB: Kale is also an easy and durable plant to grow!
