If you are looking for a vegetable to add to your diet, then I suggest picking kale.  I know, not very exciting, but there are so many health benefits of kale, it is worth a try. Kale comes in a variety of appearances, but all types of kale are extremely niutritious. Some of the vitamins and minerals kale has to include vitamin k, vitamin a, calcium, and potassium, just to name a few.

If you’re unsure about what these vitamins and minerals do here is a quick rundown, vitamin k is important because it helps blood clot and it supports bone wellness. Vitamin a is crucial to many aspects of wellness because it helps keep your skin, eyes, teeth, and mucus membranes healthy, that’s a lot, isn’t it? Calcium is a mineral that helps support blood vessels, nervous system, and muscle wellness. And potassium helps your muscles contract and your cells absorb nutrients and remove waste.

Now that you know a little about how wonderfully healthy kale is for you, you’re probably wondering what‘s the best way to eat it. Well, there’s no right way or wrong way, so it depends on what your tastes are when it comes to preparing vegetables.  You can make a nice salad of mixed greens using baby kale.  Some people enjoy kale as an ingredient in their smoothies (you cannot even taste, I promise). Others eat kale after roasting it in order to make kale chips.
