Three recipes that boost the flavor of kale superfood 


Food bloggers and health enthusiasts alike have been buzzing about Kale, a popular superfood. A superfood is a food that is nutrient-rich and especially beneficial to health and well-being. Kale is incredibly nutrient-dense making it one of the world’s healthiest foods.

One serving contains just 30 calories and provides a day’s worth of vitamin C, twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, and nearly seven times the recommended amount of vitamin K. Kale even has protein.

It also has fiber, b6, iron, and calcium, anti-inflammatory nutrients, antioxidants, and cancer fighting nutrients. Kale is a great staple food to add into your diet, but if you’ve ever tried it plain, the taste might be difficult to swallow for some.
