Is Kale Good For You? 

Kale is super healthy and really good for your body. In fact, last week we were at the supermarket and we saw a few bags of kale marked down for a fraction of the usual price. This lead to the question “Can you freeze kale”. I quickly pulled out my phone and googled to find out. 

The answer is yes, you can freeze kale. Kale is full of protein and calcium and can be frozen and used as and when needed. I really do want to get a deep chest freezer so I can store lots of healthy and good foods such as Kale at home for quick and easy cooking. 

The Benefits Of Kale

Kale is full of nutrition and here are some of the goodness you can find in this dark leafy vegetable. 

  • Protein
  • Fiber
  • Vitamins A, C and K
  • Folate, which is super important for brain development and preventing folate deficiency anaemia.
  • Omega 3 fatty Acid
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin.
  • Minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium and zinc. 

At the end of the day Kale can help you meet your daily nutritional needs and keep your vitamin and mineral levels in tact. 

Calories in Kale

There are approximately 49 calories in every 100g of Kale. Sometimes I have some scales at home which I used to weigh food but if your using a cup to measure, one cup of chopped Kale is only 33 calories.
