    If only America really did have the kale lobby to worry about instead of our petroleum addiction.

    Potatoes were once a super food until they deep fried them.

    In related news, the Romaine lettuce became toxic because the Trump admin relaxed the rules on water used on crops.

    For “kale”, read “sugar”.

    I remember a Cheers episode where they made fun of Kale Juice. Now the joke is a reality. I can’t wait for Pumpkin Spice Kale.

    Kale makes you hale. Eat enough and you will poop more regularly. As a long time vegetarian I like kale but I was/am unaware of its current ubiquity. The latest super food fad, this too will pass. My real concern, especially when it comes to feeding my children is (as sartre states above) that everything is tanked up with sugar. Combine that with the tendency to veg out in front of a video screen for a deadly mix. Take a look around at all the really fat kids you see, a rarity when I was young. Half of these kids will have heart attacks and strokes by the time they’re my age. If I were cynical (I know I just said this on another topic) I’d think that the powers-that-be like it this way.

    Hell, I’m still trying to figure out why they are putting corn syrup in my green beans. I just want my food to be food without insidiously giving me diabetes or tasting like crap because of kale.

    No wonder the Green Party is doing so poorly.

    It’s the kudzu of edible greens. (Heck, kudzu might even be better than kale.)

    I take it someone doesn’t like kale and doesn’t want anyone else enjoying it.

    The only way to eat kale is to smother it in heavy cream and cheddar cheese.

    Kale shares the same drawback as so many of the cruciferous veggies: you’ve got to cook the livin’ daylights out of it to make it edible! I’ve found the easiest shortcut is just to spray the stuff with olive oil and microwave it until it’s like a potato chip — emphasis on the “like” part.

    You can have all the kale you want. I’ll take my cabbage in the form of coleslaw please. NO cabbage, kimchi, sauerkraut or kale. Bleeeeeech.

    This gives me hope in my quest to get humans to start consuming oak leaves. we have an unlimited supply here in NC! Actually Pin Oak salad may taste better!

    Here in the Upper Midwest, Kale is relegated to a bag in the salad aisle or in over priced pasteurized juice drinks marketed to with more money than sense. What’s inescapable are ignorant right wingers who still support Trump regardless of how badly he acts or the stupid $#!+ he says and who still believe Republicans are acting in their best interests. I’m pretty sure Ted would rather deal with the ubiquitous kale.

    I like kale. I like bitter and sour. It’s a fad right now but I liked it before it was.
