Kale is an awesome superfood with nutrient benefits such as vitamins A, K & C as well as significant amounts of iron and fiber. It may even help lower cholesterol. But, it can be a little difficult to swallow (and chew), especially if you are new to this green. We sometimes chop it up and combine it with thinly sliced Brussel sprouts to make salads, but it is very good cooked as well. Check out this recipe for a tasty kale alternative.
