Veg of the Month – Kale
Over the past few months, the presence of Kale in supermarkets and recipe books has grown - and we can see why! It's a firm favourite at Goodlife HQ and often finds its way into our lunches. The curly, deep green leaves of Kale liven up a boring summer salad, with a flavour that packs a punch - Kale has a rich, earthy flavour, and can somtimes be quite bitter, and although you may not like the taste to begin with, it's surprisingly addictive!
Kale is a brassica, related to cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and sprouts, and is an offshoot of a wild cabbage which is mainly found in parts of Asia (bet you didn't know that!) It's also known as a superfood - which is a term used to describe a food which is full of nutrients, and is full of health benefits. Like we need another excuse to eat more Kale?! It's a leafy green that's delicious raw, added to a stir-fry or salad, in a superfood smoothie, or oven baked with a little salt. Check our some of our Kale recipes and try them for yourself!
