Kale Yah! Kale is sweeping the nation and is being hailed as “a nutritional powerhouse” and “the new beef.” Even Starbucks is featuring a Hearty Veggie & Brown Rice Salad Bowl, starring Kale. Move over Spinach. This vegetable boasts exceptional nutrient richness, health benefits, and a yummy flavor.

You can eat it raw, drizzle it with olive oil, marinate it with lemon and nutritional yeast and sea salts, and then dehydrate it.

Kale is anti-cancer and filled with fiber, and it’s a great detoxifier. The list doesn’t end. A recent book,  50 Shades of Kale (Harper/Wave 2013), written by Dr. Drew Ramsey, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Chef Jennifer Iserloh, spotlights kale. 

Read here what Dr. Ramsey thinks all the hype is about.

  1. It has become ‘trendy’ now because the price has gone up. I’ve been eating it for over 25 years now, and it used to be very cheap. Of course I am all for people eating more greens, but when I was charged $3 for 7 leaves, that is insane. As a chef and nutritional educator, I am acutely aware of all the health benefits and how to prepare it so people will like it. I am, however, not pleased when farmers or stores or whomever decides to charge more just because people want it. THAT is not cool. If the government would just stop subsidizing all the GMO crops-corn, soy, cotton and wheat-then we would all benefit from farmers growing vegetables and fruits and the price would become more affordable for the masses. At this point, I hope all the readers on this site will take time to educate themselves and ACT by making calls and writing letters on the Farm Bill. I suspect that most are already doing the most important thing by voting with their forks..each and every bite be blessed! WE are so lucky in this country. Seriously.
