Why should we eat kale? It's a hearty, ruffle-leaved green that is chock full of important nutrients. Just one cup of kale provides more than a day's requirement of vitamins A and C. And it's a good source of fiber, calcium, and folic acid. Fun fact: Kale actually tastes sweeter when it's frozen or exposed to a frost.
