Via Hairpin pal Bobby Finger, here is an excerpt from "the best photo gallery on the Internet today": Stars Who Love Kale. Kale, incidentally, was recently ranked the third-best best-dressed salad on a prestigious fashion blog last week.
Someday Bobby and I are actually going to write our piece on the brilliance of the Us Weekly Twitter feed (and photo galleries and headlines) and it is going to be epic.
@Anne Helen Petersen Please make my dreams come true!
pretty sure half of of those pictures are actually of collard greens, not kale.
...I needed to log in to leave this comment. it was important.
I could very easily be convinced that all of those quotes were made up by interns for a laugh, although the parents bragging about how their kids totally love kale has verisimilitude.
And yes, I did click through that slideshow. The compulsion to procrastinate instead of working on the dissertation is strong. I suppose it doesn't help that it's roughly 95 degrees right now.
Does kale really make you poop more than other vegetables? Asking for a friend.
@cuminafterall No, that's just somebody trying to be cutesy-gross. (Tee hee! I'm a pretty Playboy model but also a guy's girl!)
p.s. try pumpkin
@Lu2 MORE LIKE POOPKIN AMIRITE?
Sorry, couldn't help myself.
My love for kale is legendary, but even I could have lived without knowing this collection of tedious (and sometimes tasteless) thoughts of the seemingly blandest people in America, even if they are about my beloved. The kale is turning to ashes in my mouth. (Actually, I haven't had any kale today, which is maybe why I'm being such a bitch about it.)
Also, I think you're right about those pix of collard greens, sashay (upthread). Also, I don't believe that whoever it was, Heidi Klum, cuts up kohlrabi and kale and thinks it's the best snack ever. At least, I don't want it to be true.
Kale is played out/I was into kale before it was cool.
The veggisphere: a protective layer of Earth's atmosphere that would've protected us from stupid words like that, had kale-rays not burned it away.
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll I suppose peas are tiny veggispheres.
Serious question. I can eat all the veggies (currently drinking half a bag of spinach in smoothie form) but NOT kale. I cook it lightly in oil feeling pleased about my dietary choices. Then I am full of regrets and painful gas. Am I doing this wrong?
@Panda+Attack If your body doesn't agree with something, it doesn't agree with something. I can't do carrots.
Not your question, but how do you juice spinach? My juicer (yes, I have a juicer) just shreds greens ineffectually. Tips? (Buy a different juicer, prob.)
@Panda+Attack No, you're normal. I don't have the problem but I know someone who can't deal with kale (or spinach, actually).
@Rock and Roll Ken Doll
Sorry for the super late reply. I actually just use a blender, middle of the line, maybe 35 quid? I think a juicer would just take out the fibre which is part of my motivation for consuming so many greens.
I don't notice the taste or texture of the spinach at all when I drink it. The recipe is, milk on bottom covering the blades + 1 raw banana broken into chunks + 2 big handfuls of spinach + frozen berries.
A couple of those weren't people saying they liked kale, they were just saying they ate a lot of kale when they were trying to lose weight. Anne Hathaway saying that she was eating "dust and kale" to get in Catwoman shape is not an endorsement of kale, it's a comment on how kale is the go-to health food of the moment. But hey, US Weekly got my clicks, so what do they care.
pretty sure half of of those pictures Hut ham cau tai Da Nang are actually of collard greens, not kale.
