Eat Your Kale: Love It or Hate It
In talking about my new project Food Font I often mention the possibility of being able to use a food alphabet made of food, such as kale to make images, posters, signs, where you write with your food.
I have learned that people have a strong opinion of kale – they either LOVE it or HATE it.
Kale has been grown for over 2000 years. Kale was the most widely eaten green vegetable until the Middle ages when cabbages became more popular. It is often called a “superfood,” has vitamin A, B complex and C, and is a powerful antioxidant.
I myself love kale and have learned that I like the red winter kale or red Russian kale which is milder and is a little sweet.
So what about you? Do you love it or hate it?
