Versatile Fall Garden Kale

I'd heard it mentioned as fact.  But I didn't believe it myself until I looked up the USDA nutrient data.  The organic kale growing in my garden contains more calcium than milk.  According to the USDA, 100 grams of 1% milk contains 125 milligrams of calcium, while the same amount of raw kale contains 150 milligrams of calcium.  Plus, we get lots of potassium and iron.  Wow!  Makes me appreciate even more the free seeds that Sow True Seed gave us to encourage our little family garden to include kale.

We've enjoyed kale chips from an easy recipe in the Sisters of the Skillet cookbook.  We've included kale in easy yogurt smoothies.

I see that Catherine McCord has 22 more ideas for using kale on her Weelicious recipe site, so we'll have no shortage of ways to eat more kale.

If you need some inspiration, like I do, to step up your veggie presentations, hear what McCord has to say about her Weelicious approach.  Plus, don't miss your chance to win a hardback copy of her cookbook!
