21. Kale

Ten years ago no one would be caught dead eating kale. This dark leafy vegetable is a children’s nightmare and adults aren’t too crazy about it either. And yet, it is becoming increasingly popular ever since someone started touting its miraculous nutritional properties.

A relative of cabbage, broccoli, collard greens and Brussels sprouts, kale has dark green or purplish leaves that do not form a head. It has quite a strong, even pungent flavor and it can be eaten fresh, boiled, stewed or even baked, in which case it takes a consistency of chips.

Many juice and smoothie bars offer kale as an ingredient in their beverages. It is usually combined with other veggie juices like beets and carrots, but it can also be consumed alone (although that particular juice is probably not very popular). Kale is rich in vitamin C and calcium, it has a high content of dietary fiber and antioxidants.
