Kale #4 Food Trend by TIME Magazine in 2012

Wow! So excited to see kale, the green leafy vegetable mostly under the radar, in TIME Magazines top food trends of 2012.  In our opinion, it was the top food trend of 2012 especially because kale is a nutritional powerhouse.  Here are the powerhouse stats for 1 cup:
  • 36 calories
  • 5 grams of fiber
  • vitamins & minerals include: calcium, vitamin B6, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, copper, potassium, iron, manganese, & phosphorus.
  • includes antioxidants, carotenoids and flavenoids, associated with many anti-cancer health benefits
  • rich in lutein and zeaxanthin compounds good for eye health
To add this nutritious vegetable to your menu, check HERE for recipes that include kale and HERE the popular "Baked Kale Chips" recipe.
