Kale is a dark-colored leafy green that has lots of iron in it. It has lots of fiber and antioxidants in there that can prevent various health problems such as diabetes, cancer, and the like. They are part of the broccoli family which means that they are easy to grow. They grow well in the colder months.
You can put kale in smoothies as it has been done before at Shape up.
They can be added to vegetable and lamb soups in winter.
You can eat them raw, steam them, cook them, or sautee them to make a side dish.
