Like most of you, I grew up thinking that Kale was an inedible garnish that was there to make a plate look pretty at restaurants. We know better now! Kale is actually a superfood that is packed full of beta-carotine, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, manganese, fiber and other goodies.
It’s easy to work this nutritional powerhouse into your diet, if you know how to do it. Stephanie Pedersen can help people who are new to using kale and those of you who already have experience with it.
