Food Facts

A member of the cabbage family, kale has heavy-textured elongated dark green leaves with tightly curled edges. Rinse the leaves in cool water, then strip the leaves away from the thick mid-ribs before using as desired.

Use Whole Grains

A whole grain is the entire edible part of any grain, such as wheat, corn, oats or rice. Whole grains have more fiber than refined grains and should make up at least half of your daily grain intake.
