Fresh Kale

KALE

Kale is a super green. Please don't say "what the heck do I do with kale?" because holy moly, it can go in anything. And unless you are adverse to all things green, then you'll like kale. It is in the same family as brocolli and has the same super nutrients that contain anti-cancer chemicals as well as a slew of vitamins.  
 
QUICK IDEAS: chop in your food processor and add to your eggs; make a pesto out of it; blanch it and freeze enough to last you through the winter
