OH, KALE YEAH!
We all know kale is good for you...but do you know just HOW good?!
1 CUP OF KALE PROVIDES MORE VITAMIN C THAN A WHOLE ORANGE
Yep, It's true - this leafy green is actually one of the world's best sources of vitamin C...and you don't even have to peel it first!
THE KALE PLANT GROWS FLOWERS
Although it's typically planted as an annual plant, kale is naturally a biennial plant that produces yellow four-petaled flowers known as siliques.
1 SERVING OF KALE HAS MORE ABSORBABLE CALCIUM
