Health Experts Are Crazy for Kale: 5 Summery Recipes To Try

I have loved kale as long as I can remember (though I can’t say I recall eating it much growing up in North Carolina, where its tougher cousin, the collard green, was king). So I’ve been happy to join in the foodie frenzy for the cruciferous veggie that’s been raging for the past few years, eating it steamed, sauteed, baked into chips, and raw. We covered kale in Doable Challenge #3: Eat for Longevity, and now the veggie has gotten more nods, making it into the July issues of the Tufts Health & Nutrition Letter in an article that urges Try Kale for Vitamin K and Cancer Protection and in Consumer Reports onHealth with What to Eat Now: Kale. Both publications commend the vegetable for having just 36 calories per cup, its wealth of vitamins and minerals, and its power to help fight many diseases, including cancer, heart disease, some eye diseases, and cognitive decline. Check out the articles and dig into the summery and healthy kale recipes below. And for you other collard fans out there, keep eating that cooking green, too — it has many of the same benefits of kale, and even more vitamin K, says Tufts.
