Kale

Kale is a dark, leafy green you can eat raw or cooked.

This superfood hails from the cabbage family, which also includes broccoli, cauliflower, and collards. Kale is more popular than ever, and it’s packed with vitamins and minerals.

 

Health Benefits

  • Folate, a B vitamin that’s key for brain development

  • Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. (Although kale has far less omega-3 than fish, it’s another way to get some of this healthy fat into your diet.)
