Kale is one of the hottest superfoods around today. The reason for that is that it’s loaded in calcium. It’s also high in fiber, vitamin A and vitamin C. There are many different ways you can prepare kale and add it into your diet. You can make a smoothie, you can sauté it, or you can simply add the leaves into your soups. Kale has become so trendy that you might see some of the fancy chefs on the Food Network baking it and making kale chips.
