What’s green, curly, has cholesterol-lowering and detox benefits, and is known to fight at least five different types of cancer? KALE! True, all things Kale are a national trend right now - kale is popping up everywhere in the grocery store (in the freezer, snack aisles, beverage cases) when it was once relegated to the corner of the produce aisle or reserved just as a decoration on appetizer platters - who really thought to buy it much less eat it? Admittedly I am an addict and have fallen for the trend - with good reason! According to Organic Authority, an online publication focused on healthy eating and living, kale is ranked as one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet...loaded with minerals, vitamins, fiber and amino acids, as well as antioxidants that reduce inflammation and help prevent cancer. 

Add it to your weekly recipes as a snack (kale chips), salad option, or blend with almond milk into a delicious smoothie for breakfast.
