Kale Eight Ways

Everyone knows that kale is a superfood, but the question is, are you eating your kale?  I decided to make a recipe round up of my favourite kale recipes, which are easy to make and delicious.  I hope you love them as much as we do!

I absolutely love kale in general.  A nutrient powerhouse, one cup of kale has zero fat and only 36 calories and is high in vitamins and cancer-fighting antioxidants.  Any time you see a dark green such as kale, it is a sign that it is highly concentrated with nutrients.
Here are just some of its wholesome features:

  • Super rich in vitamin K (which translates into a super antioxidant!)
  • High in fiber (assists in gut health)
  • High in iron (per calorie, more iron than beef)
  • High in vitamin A (great skin, yes please)
  • High in vitamin C (great for your immune system)
  • High in calcium (per calorie, more calcium than milk!)

I’d love to know, what is your favourite way of preparing kale?

    All of these are great, simple ideas for meals or snacks! Kale is so good for you and so tasty.

  2. Thank you so much for this! We’ve been getting kale in our produce delivery and, aside from kale chips, I don’t really know what to do with it. This is so helpful!

  3. Thank you for this! I never know what to do but steam it with garlic and olive oil + sea salt. This is grand!

  4. I’m going to try the rice bowl, sounds delish! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I really must try kale!!! I keep meaning to!

  6. Kale is amazing and I throw it in everything from soups to rice dishes to smoothies!

    Fanstastic!

  8. I also love kale – we go through at least a bunch a week, if not more. Kale pesto is one of my favourite ways to eat kale – it’s easy to make, really tasty, and versatile: http://tiny.cc/9duwbx

    • Hi Sarah! Oh yes, I saw that recipe you made, it looks so delicious! Lovely photos as well, might I add.
      Thanks for sharing! Will have to try it in pesto, I haven’t had that yet.

  9. Some great recipes here Sophia! My husband and I eat kale a few times a week, and I love it most ways. My favorite is probably massaged with an avocado as a salad. Hope you’re having a great week! Celeste ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Love massaged kale salads! When I first started eating raw kale, I didn’t know about that trick, so much better once I figured it out! Thanks for sharing, Celeste.
      Have a great week as well!

  10. Thank you for such a fantastic kale post with recipes to follow!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really can’t wait to try your recipes especially the penne one when I have time to really cook. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favourite ways in using kale is putting it into my green smoothies or oatmeal in the morning. It’s quick and easy. hehe

    • Hi Violet! I’m so glad you like it. The penne one is actually a funny store. My 6’4″ omnivore father in law was over one night while I was preparing dinner, and I served this to him. He absolutely loved it! It’s great for everyone, apparently. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Thanks for stopping by!
