Kale Recipes Prove That Healthy And Delicious Can Co-Exist (1)

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables on earth. We know, we know, you're probably saying, "But guys, aren't ALL vegetables healthy? Isn't that part of being a vegetable?" Well, sure. But we think kale is particularly amazing and we are going to tell you why.

Kale, like all leafy greens, is loaded with vitamins and nutrients -- just one cup contains five grams of fiber, and 15 percent of your recommended daily requirements for calcium and vitamin B6, 180 percent of your vitamin A, 200 percent of your vitamin C and 1,020 percent of vitamin K. We'll repeat that: 1,020 percent of your daily recommended vitamin K, which has been linked to a significantly decreased risk of cancer. Kale is also a natural detoxifier, which is helpful when say, you spend a lot of time eating tacos, drinking beer and attending meat-grilling festivals. (Yes, we're talking about ourselves.)

Kale's ability to be eaten raw, steamed, sautéed, boiled, braised, baked and just about every other method in between makes it pretty hard to get tired of. Just in case, you'll find some delicious kale recipes below.
