Kale is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables.

Along with being an excellent source of antioxidant nutrients beta-carotene and vitamin C, kale is also packed with cell-protecting glucosinolates and sulforaphane, as well as sight-saving lutein.

Kale can be prepared in numerous ways-from lightly sauteeing with lemon and extra virgin olive oil to adding fresh to a chopped salad.

Selecting and Storing Kale

Choose kale with small-leaves to ensure tenderness. Select moist, crisp, unblemished kale with thick, plump stems. Kale is best used within a day or two.
