Thought I'd share more about the super foods that I heard about last week. Today, I'll focus on Kale. I have to admit, this was the one food listed that I had no idea what it was. Kale is a relative of broccoli and cabbage. It has leaves like cabbage and a thick stalk like broccoli. When preparing Kale, it can be thrown it with most any other veggies. The only thing to remember about kale is to peel the stalky portioned away from the leaves. Much like broccoli, that stalky portion is very fiberous and difficult to eat. It can be chopped or left whole and added to soups, stew and stir-fry. It is tough and best cooked, not raw. When eating kale, you will probably burn more calories eating it than are in kale. I love foods like that!
