Kale Yeah! It’s #MacroMonday

I love me some kale chips. It’s the one green recipe that I can cook and  guarantee that  T will eat. They are light, crispy and absolutely addicting.

Here are some fun kale facts:

  • 1  cup of purple kale=206 % of your Daily Value (DV) for Vitamin A
  • 1 cup of purple kale=134% of your Daily Value (DV) for Vitamin C. That’s more than 1 orange.
  • It easily grows in a winter garden in central Texas. A slight freeze will only enhance the flavor of the plant.
  • Kale has 150 mg of calcium per 100 grams, while milk has 125 mg. That’s something to consider, if you have to avoid milk.

So to that my friend, I say KALE YEAH!
