Hello all! Today is October 4th, and you know what that means!
Okay, maybe you don’t know what that means. It’s National Kale Day!
Kale is one of the biggest health foods trends in the US right now (second only to avocado). It’s loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, iron, calcium and antioxidants…meaning it should definitely be on your plate every once in a while.
However, eating chunks of leafy greens by itself may not seem appetizing to some. But, I’m here to tell you that you can still get your fill of this popular, nutrient-dense vegetable with a few of these delicious recipes!
