Go Kale, Not Jail

We should all eat kale. Not only because its got a name which makes it sound like a cool hipster girl but also because it's freaking awesome. I bought a big bunch from the farmers market not too long ago and steamed the life out of it. After eating it, I was on a health high for like a week. The NY Times writes that kale "has been found to have the greatest antioxidant capacity of all fruits and vegetables. It's an excellent source of vitamins K, A and C, as well as manganese, and a very good source of dietary fiber, calcium, iron and potassium. All of this nutritional value comes in a low-calorie package."

Can't you feel your immune system and your longevity gene getting an erection just reading that? I think it's time for some Kale pizza!
