Did you know Kale was one of the more commonly consumed leafy greens up until the Middle Ages in Europe! It boasts deep, sharp, sweet and earthy flavours that can range from rich and meaty to herbaceous and slightly bitter. It tastes supremely healthy — in a good way. Kale belongs to the Brassica family, which also includes cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower to name a few.
Kale is known to be a nutritional powerhouse: an excellent source in Vitamins A, C, K1 and a great source of Calcium and Potassium. In order to be absorbed in the body vitamin K1 requires fats so be sure to prepare our Kale with a healthy oil or avocado to take full advantage of the nutritional properties.
