It doesn’t get more nutrient-dense than kale: a single 1/2 cup cooked serving gives you half the vitamin A you need in a day for healthy skin and immunity, plus more than a day’s worth of vitamin K for bone health. If you’re new to kale, try lacinato kale, a sweeter variety — and ensure that you massage raw kale to help tenderize it so you aren’t labouring through your salads! 

I am all about that kale life, so I love dreaming up new ways to use it, from my kale panzanella to my addictive kale gratin. I love it with butternut squash in a salad and folded into my favourite vegan kale and pecan stuffing recipe.
