Curly Kale

A salad favourite, Curly Kale gets its name from its wavy leaves. When young, their edges have a slight curl, but as they grow, so do the amount of curls. This variety of kale is particularly nice in salads, thanks in large part to its appearance and texture adding a different look than your average lettuce-based salad.

And now for the best part! Kale is positively brimming with vitamins and beneficial minerals! Just 100g of the stuff will cover half of your daily requirement for vitamin A, double your daily needs for vitamin C, and far more than enough vitamin K. It also contains a good filling of your daily needs for fibre, iron, and calcium. It even contains a decent portion of protein (almost as much as a single slice of cheese!).
