Kale is indeed an amazing source of nutrients essential to your well-being and overall health.
Do you prefer drinking your veggies?
Or would you rather gobble them up as salads or side dishes?
Either way, kale is great for these things.
Just a cup of fresh, chopped kale offers you as much as 0.6 grams of fiber. Consuming cooked kale, however, increases the fiber content, giving you 2.6 grams.
Or you can eat it raw to keep all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants locked in.
Add in cooked kale to your main dishes.
Steam it, lightly stir-fry it, add it to soups… These are just some of the ways to incorporate a serving of kale to your daily meals. Since it doesn’t have a strong taste, you can easily add it into your dishes and not mess up the desired flavor of your recipes.
Be sure to enjoy a serving or more of kale each day to supply your body with all the essential nutrients and health benefits it needs.
