Superfood Tip: Kale is a powerful food

Advertisement

One cup of kale is only 25 calories and is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. One serving of kale contains all of the vitamin A, K, and C that we need in one day. It is also a rich source beta carotene, leutin, B vitamins, and many minerals such as copper, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. You can prepare kale in a salad, warmed with a little oil in the sauce pan, or blend in with a fruit smoothie.
