Baby Kale

 

  • Move over Popeye with your spinach because here comes Kale. I’m not talking about those large red and green fibrous varieties that honestly are not that tasty and pretty tough to eat raw unless of course you massage the kale leaves for several minutes
  • There’s now a new kid on the block.
  • I’m referring to soft baby kale leaves that are delicious either eaten raw in a salad, stir fried or tossed into soups or pastas
  • They’re in your supermarket,  washed and packed for easy use by the company Earthbound Farms.
  • Kale is a true superfood.  It’s low in calories, high in fiber, iron, vitamin K and C, calcium and filled with antioxidants and considered an anti inflammatory food.
  • If you want to cook kale, simply steam or boil in a small amount of water for 5 minutes.
