What is Kale?

Kale is a leafy green vegetable with curly leaves. The beautiful Kale is considered to be the king of all vegetables. I admit I did not know about kale before I moved to USA as it is not usually available in other countries.After some research It came to my knowledge how beneficial this green vegetable is and including it in your diet can be beneficial to your health in many ways. It has a taste similar to spinach and is easy to mask when used in complex recipes,like omelettes,smoothies and salads.


Nutrition in Kale

A single cup of kale contains 206% of the RDA of Vitamin A and a very good source of Vitamin K,Vitamin C,Vitamin B6, and minerals like Magnesium and calcium according to a website.


If you are like me and do not like greens raw or alone you probably need to sneak it in your delicious recipes and kale omelette is an example. Whoever tasted this omelette could not figure out I put kale in it and found it very enjoyable. It is a breakfast full of vitamins and gives a lot of energy for a long day ahead.
