Kale is for deviated preverts. I eat only charred steak, and I'm a god damn sexual tyrannosaurus. My bowel movements occur every three days and are black and tarry. Go USA!

Seriously, its not my favorite veggie but, lightly steamed with lemon and butter, it doesn't suck either.

It makes sense to let people you hate completely inform your life choices.

The My Little Pony Killer: I'm convinced that the people who complain about not being able to enjoy the foods that other people are talking about feel compelled to eat said food every time they see it mentioned.


Mmm mmmmm.....that was the best kale, ham and sriracha sandwich....... wait, what?

Rapmaster2000: I know. I made this at home and I felt so disrespected that I spent over an hour yelling at the salad.

I was screaming "who do you think you are, salad? You think you're better than me, salad?"


Exactly. Salads are usually hilarious and awesome to be around:

Prevailing Wind: I juice.  I juice kale.  I do it about 3-4 times a week and I'll usually have some manner of greens at least once a day.
I also eat whole grains like barley, quinoa, oats, and rice about once per day.
I eat legumes like chick peas, lentils, mung beans, lima beans, kidney beans a few times a week.
I drink green tea, and probiotics.
I eat lean meats, fish, and poultry in moderation.
I eat fruit and vegetables at every meal.
I use nuts, oils, and dairy as accents and not features of meals.
I never allow myself to be hungry and I do not want.

Then once a week I order an entire goddamn pizza and I eat the shiat out of it while swilling as much beer as humanly possible and watching football.   I follow it up with ice cream and cookies and if I'm really lucky a blowjob from my wife.   Sunday is a good day people.  It helps me cope with the horrific mediocrity of the the other six days.

Acceptable vegetables include peas, carrots, corn, lima beans, green beans, and most components of a typical garden salad, including cucumbers, radishes, and the various styles of lettuce.

Unacceptable vegetables include spinach, okra, artichokes, broccoli, asparagus, and mushrooms.

Beets, turnips, and yams are generally considered an act of war.

DeaH: I think it has more to do with taste than health. It's true that there can be a difference in taste when you use sea salt.


Sea salt does taste different/better than iodized salt. I use sea salt and kosher salt when taste is important. But lots of people avoid iodized salt because of "chemicals". I've had conversations like this...

Them: "Oh, I eat healthy so I only use sea salt."

Me: " Yeah, you want to avoid chemicals in your salt like sodium."

Them: " Exactly!"

Donnchadha: Pentaxian: The guy who catered my daughter's Bat Mitzvah makes a kale salad fit for the gods. It's so simple but so tasty.

Cranberry Kale Salad with Almond Slivers
Ingredients
1 bunch kale
¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 ½ cup dried cranberries
1 cup sliced toasted almonds
¼ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup olive oil
1 garlic clove chopped very fine
pepper to taste
salt to taste

Method
Wash the kale under running water to remove impurities
Dry the kale by shaking the leaves over a sink
Remove the stems from the kale leaves
Lay the kale leaves one on top of the other and chop them into small pieces
Add the kale to a large bowl
Add the remaining ingredients one at a time and toss together with a pair of tongs
Allow the salad to rest for ½ hour in the refrigerator before serving

That has got to be the most condescending recipe I have ever read.


I know.  I made this at home and I felt so disrespected that I spent over an hour yelling at the salad.

I was screaming "who do you think you are, salad?  You think you're better than me, salad?"

sigdiamond2000: Mangoose: Let's say, science develops a treatment where you could eat anything you wanted and it wouldn't be unhealthy, etc. Would you choose to eat kale?

Yes. I've been eating it for years. Why would I stop?

I don't eat it because I think it's going to give me super powers. I eat it because I like it.


De gustibus non est disputandum. My kid says carrots are disgusting and peas are worse than demon droppings, but she loves the taste of kale.
