Everyone’s favorite leafy green seems to be sneaking its way into just about every dish. If you’re like most, you’ve probably hopped on the kale train, we certainly have, and you might be wondering “Why is kale a thing?"
Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It’s packed with:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin C
- Calcium, and much more
Seriously, we could go on and on. Kale has little fat, and a large portion of the fat it does contain is the good kind—the Omega-3s.
So, there’s really no wonder kale has become synonymous with healthy living. Our kitchen has caught on to this huge trend and has partnered with some of the best names in food across the nation to deliver kale-infused meal kits right to your door.
