GLOBAL WORD CHEF

KALE

Nature’s way of protecting wild and domesticated life from poisons – that which would harm the organism – is to make those foods containing said poisons taste badly, turn up your nose to them, by-pass them, don’t want to eat this because it chews badly, smells badly, tastes badly, spit it out before you swallow it.

Not all greens taste badly. In fact many greens, when prepared right, taste and texture great. I find it odd, however, that the one green that everybody should hate, vegans love.

But it’s good for you.

Prove it.

Okay, I used it a few times. Took a lot of effort with lots of other ingredients to mask it. And I would make one recipe again only to please the kale lovers.

But, I can guarantee that you will not live one day longer because you ate kale.

Taste bud punishment is not being offered on this site.

Go someplace else for your daily dose of masochism.

You don’t belong here.

Just kidding. You need to be here. I want you here. All the kale lovers.
