Let's face it, we can all use more greens in our diet--especially kale! According to Helen Nichols of Well-Being Secrets, "one cup of raw kale has just 33 calories, yet contains 684% of vitamin K, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, plus omega-3s, iron, magnesium, calcium, folate, fiber, iron, and 2 grams of protein." Here are 5 of our favorite recipes containing this green superfood.
