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

Oh, the many wonders of kale.

Honeybees pollinate kale 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 one of the most nutrient-filled natural foods on the planet. It’s jammed packed with vitamins and nutrients. With more vitamin C than an orange and enough vitamin K to last you a week, it’s an easy-to-make superfood thats as good for you to eat as it is for your skin. Kale 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.
