    Great post, Jennifer. I knew kale was nutritious, but I didn’t realize it was THAT nutritious. Also I was surprised to see arugala so high on the list. Kale grows really well in our garden, so it’s something we eat a lot of. Some people don’t like the texture, but we are so used to it, and eat it raw like lettuce in sandwiches all the time. Also my kids love kale slaw, made with a simple vinagrette, chopped fruits, and nuts. Pinned and shared.

    Lots of great info on kale! It’s a garden rockstar here. I’ve got several different varieties growing this fall, from Red Ursa to Lacinato. It’s all good!
