All Hail Kale for National Kale Day

Field of kale growing in autumn

It’s National Kale Day and we want you to celebrate this amazing and easy-to-grow, brain-boosting veggie. Kale is definitely a lot more underrated than it should be-we also want to change that!

Oh, the wonders of kale.

Kale is pollinated by honeybees, and they absolutely love it. The plants bloom in the late summer months of their second growing year, and give a little boost to the bees at the end of the season.

Kale is full of vitamins. With more vitamin C than an orange and enough vitamin K to last you a week, it’s an easy-to-make superfood as good for you as it is for your skin.

The plant is also a great source of calcium, magnesium, iron and antioxidants. It is heart healthy to boot, with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
