Every serving of kale provides more than your daily value of vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant to boost immunity. All dark green leafy vegetables, including kale, contain more good-for-your-bones calcium than any other vegetable. Kale is also rich in vitamin C, fiber and vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin needed for proper blood clotting and bone health. Use any sweet apple variety, like Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Fuji or Gala.
