Daily Nutrition Nibble: Eat some Kale!

Love to eat leafy greens? Are you a fan of kale? This beautiful green veggie is packed with nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin (to promote healthy eyes), bone-building calcium, flavonoids for good circulation, and B-vitamins for energy. When cooking kale, don’t forget about the stems! Many people don’t know that the stems contain all of the nutrients in the leaves plus an extra boost of fiber! If the stems are thick, cook them for about 2-3 minutes longer than the leaves. I recommend steaming kale for about five minutes.
