3 reasons to love kale and 3 delicious recipes to use it in

By: Canadian Living

Kale has time and time again been labelled as a superfood, and for good reason! Here are 3 reasons to keep loving kale: 1. It's good for you: With its dark green leaves, kale is a great source of fibre. It's also packed full of vitamin K, which is great for bone health, and Vitamin A, which helps strengthen bones, eyes and teeth. 2. You can use it a variety of recipes: Yes, adding kale leaves to a smoothie or making kale chips are both delicious options, but there is a variety of other ways to use kale. Marinated kale is absolutely fantastic with any kind of grilled meat, fish or chicken, kale pesto is a deliciously healthy substitute to traditional basil pesto and kale leaves are a hearty addition to soups and stews. 3. It comes in various forms: If you're bored of using classic kale, try adding baby kale to your recipes instead. Baby kale is sweeter and more tender than its mature counterpart so it's a great way to introduce kale to a picky eater's diet. You can use baby kale in lieu of lettuce in salads, as a fresh topping for pizza or as part of a tasty sandwich. There are also other varieties to try like purple or red kale if you want to switch it up. Here are 3 of my favourite kale recipes to get you inspired to add this healthy green to more of your meals.
