How to eat Kale

My favourite way to eat kale is in a green smoothie I personally call the “Green Monster”.  ever since I purchased my Vitamix I’ve been drinking them and I absolutely love it! My hair and nails benefit greatly from it.

Many people people prefer kale mixed into a salad, that’s is another great way as well. Many stores carry the Kale salad already pre-mixed. You can get it at most grocery stores.

You can also steam kale or add it to stocks and other culinary dishes. The options are endless. To get the amazing benefits kale has to offer, raw is always best.
