WHEN CAN YOU GET IT?
Kale is in season from September to July.
WHY SHOULD YOU EAT IT?
One cup of kale offers an immense amount of Vitamin A, K, and C. Kale also offers calcium, iron, magnesium, and antioxidants.
HOW CAN YOU EAT IT?
Kale can replace lettuce in any salad and be topped with vegetables of choice.
It can also be boiled briefly and added to pasta or to soups.
