Kale

Kale is a good source of carotenoids, which protect against bone loss as you age. In cooking, kale is interchangeable with chard and other greens (beet, mustard, turnip).

STORE: In the refrigerator, in a perforated plastic bag.

USE: Cut out and compost the stems, or keep them for vegetable stock. Plunge into a pot of water to remove dirt from the leaves. For the best taste, saute kale with olive oil and balsamic vinegar until wilted.
