As if you needed another reason to eat more kale, a recent study found that green veggies like kale that are rich in carotenoids can help boost your mood. On top of those mood-boosting carotenoids, kale is rich in fiber, iron, and vitamins A, C, and K. It’s also got a healthy dose of minerals like copper, magnesium, and calcium.
All of that, and it’s pretty darn delicious! You can eat your kale cooked or raw. While raw kale might sound a little off-putting, when folks talk about raw greens, they don’t mean gnawing them straight out of the produce drawer. The most common ways to prepare raw kale are to toss a few leaves (ribs removed) into a green smoothie or massage them with a marinade and letting the leaves soften and wilt.
