Kale has long been touted as one of the most nutritious vegetables around. It is very high in vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, copper, and manganese. It also contains high amounts of beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are all phytonutrients important for maintaining healthy vision. Indoles and sulforaphane are also found in kale, and are believed to have powerful anti-cancer properties. (Read more about kale on World's Healthiest Foods and get your nutrition facts on


Kale should be eaten as soon as possible. Kale stays fresh longer when stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.  Kale and many other leafy greens may wilt easily.  Often, they are just dried out which can occur even if the greens remain in constant refrigeration.  To refresh kale, submerge the wilted greens in cold water and keep in the refrigerator overnight.
