Happy National Kale Day!

We’re celebrating our favorite leafy green by eating it at every meal. Kale smoothie for breakfast. Kale salad for lunch. Pasta with kale for dinner.

So what makes kale so great that it deserves its own day? Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk and 10 times more vitamin C than spinach. It’s high in vitamins A, K & C, and low in fat, calories and carbs. Kale is also packed with phytonutrients that can help fight obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Pick a recipe from our Oh Kale Yeah! Pinterest board, and celebrate National Kale Day with us!
