Kale Recipes: One Of The Healthiest Vegetables On Earth Is Also Delicious (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables on earth. We know, we know -- you are probably saying, "But guys, aren't ALL vegetables healthy? Isn't that part of being a vegetable?" Well, sure. But we think kale is particularly amazing and we are going to tell you why.

Kale, like all leafy greens, is loaded with vitamins and nutrients -- just one cup contains 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of your recommended daily requirements for calcium and vitamin B6, 180% of your vitamin A, 200% of your vitamin C and 1,020% of vitamin K. We'll repeat that: 1,020% of your daily recommended vitamin K, which has been linked to a significantly decreased risk of cancer. Kale is also a natural detoxifier, which is helpful when say, spend a lot of time eating tacos, drinking beer and attending meat-grilling festivals. (Yes, we're talking about ourselves!)

Kale's ability to be eaten raw, steamed, sauteed, boiled, braised, baked and just about every other method in between makes it pretty hard to get tired of. Just in case, you'll find some delicious kale recipes below.
