Kale has become one of my favorite greens because it is fairly easy to grow in the garden from seed. I didn’t realize that Kale is full of vitamin C in a 1 oz serving. I’ve fallen in love with Seed Savers’ Delaway Kale variety. It germinates well and produces a large, lush leaf that has a smooth taste and isn’t as tough to chew as other varieties of Kale that I’ve had. Kale is also a significant source of copper with a total of 4 nutrients above the 10%+ of daily value. This puts Kale in the bottom list of foods when eating solely for nutritio but with only 13 calories and 1 gram of fiber in a 1 oz serving, Kale is a necessity in any weight loss eating plan.
