Kale chips WM

I absolutely love kale! As far as superfoods go, kale is definitely one of the best green veggies you can eat.  It is loaded with nutrients like vitamin K, manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, omega 3 fatty acids, and also has lots of fiber to boot too.  Compared to other greens like spinach, kale also has a low level of oxalic acid – a chemical which can interfere with mineral absorption.  So, you aren’t just getting a mega boost of nutrients from kale, but your body is actually absorbing them well too.

Plus, I have a ton of it growing in my garden at all times.

Hooray for kale!

Okay, I know what you are thinking: “Yes, I know I should be eating my greens, but I just can’t think of any good recipes.”  Well, no more excuses!  Here are some amazing paleo kale recipes from some of the best real food bloggers on the net.  There are even kale recipes which your kids will love (my kids’ favorite is kale chips!).

Kale is one of the veggies I would definitely buy organic if you can (or grow it yourself). Kale, and all leafy greens are on “The Dirty Dozen” list which gets released by the Environmental Working Group each year to show which crops have the highest amounts of pesticides present.  If you do buy conventionally-grown kale, be sure that you do a good job of washing it.  Most pesticides aren’t going to come off with water alone.  Instead, you’ve got to use a veggie wash solution to wash the kale.  There are a bunch of products you can buy, but you can also just use a solution of 50/50 plain white vinegar and water.  Let the kale soak in the solution for a few minutes and then rinse well with water.
