Crouching Garnish, Hidden Superfood: The Secret Life of Kale

Kale

Story at-a-glance -

  • Kale is a form of cabbage that evaded domestication, sharing many of the same traits as wilder plant relatives, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts
  • The nutritional density of kale is virtually unparalleled among green leafy vegetables. It has a 3:1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, which is an exceptionally high amount of protein for any vegetable, and one reason why it has recently been acclaimed as the "new beef"
  • Like meat, kale contains all 9 essential amino acids needed to form the proteins within the human body, plus, 9 other non-essential ones for a total of 18. It also contains more omega-3 than omega-6, which is almost unheard of in nature
  • For a hearty protein breakfast, try chopping up half a bunch of kale, a quarter of an onion, and stir fry it in a tablespoon of olive oil for a few minutes till it is tender. Make sure to add in a pinch of natural unprocessed salt, a pinch of pepper, a teaspoon of lemon or Ume Plum Vinegar
