Green machine

If it’s good enough for the Hollywood A-list, it’s sure good enough for us. Jane Pikett goes crazy with the kale

Kale is one of the few greens which is more abundant and flavourful when the weather gets cold, which is good news, as it’s also ridiculously good for you.

Beloved of Hollywood A-listers and body builders alike, it’s packed with super vitamins and lacks calories. Every bite packs a nutritious punch, and unless you smother it in cream and butter (and why not?), it won’t make you pile on the pounds.

Alongside cabbage and spinach, this is our favourite green. It makes for a fantastic smoothie, steamed accompaniment, or a wonderful ingredient for soup.

Try these…
