According to WIkipedia:
Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties.
Kale is considered to be anti-inflammatory, very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, and reasonably rich in calcium.
Kale contains sulforaphane – a chemical believed to have potent anti-cancer properties. Kale is also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Kale is also a good source of carotenoids.

And avocados deliver almost 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients — the special plant chemicals that convey myriad health benefits. Plus, what is more fun than growing an avocado plant from the pit?
Guacamole tip: To keep avocado dips from turning brown, press plastic wrap down into bowl and smooth it tight to the edges, leaving no air pockets.
