Kale: The Super Food

Growing in popularity, kale has been named the ultimate super food. Instead of making a salad with lettuce or spring mix, try making a dark leafy green salad with some fresh kale leaves. The health benefits and fabulous taste will have you eating more kale each day! Reasons why I love kale: 

  1. Great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin K
  2. Antioxidants: helps reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.
  3. Iron
  4. Fiber

Try this delicious Kale Caesar Salad:



  • Kale leaves
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Croutons
  • Caesar dressing
  • Parmesan cheese

If desired, add some bacon bits.


  1. Wash kale leaves and cherry tomatoes
  2. Combine kale, tomatoes, croutons, and dressing
  3. Mix all ingredients in large bowl
  4. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and enjoy!
