Is it really THAT good for you, or is it just a meemee?

>>7366338
Why not look up its nutritional content and decide for yourself? The numbers ought to make the answer pretty damn obvious.

Just eat spinach

If your diet is halfway balanced, you get all of your required nutrients anyway, so there is really no need to eat these "nutritious" meme foods like kale and spinach. Consuming a hundred times your vitamin K and A needs doesn't do anything for your health. These kinds of foods are only required if the rest of your diet is total garbage (for example, a vegan who eats mostly white rice, oil and wheat).

It's just a meme.
It's good for you, but it tastes like such shit that you can get perfectly fine amount of nutrition in most diets that aren't pure fast food.
Until kale became a meme, the biggest buyer for it was Round Table Pizza who used it to decorate their salad bar.
Not as one of the ingredients, just as fluffy green filler in between the actual ingredients.

Kale is delicious, just like pretty much every other kind of greens. I've been eating it all my life, and I will continue to eat it, whether kids on the internet brand it as a meme or not.

My mom always puts it in the oven with salt and then they get really crispy. I dont know exactly how she makes them because the lives abroad but if you ont like kale you could try to make it this way its great eventhough I normally hate it

people will tell you you are a liar and will insult you.

I fry a wokful of kale with a tiny bit of garlic as a snack before I go out on the weekend. Feels good.

I feel the need to point out the stunning and brave faggotry of OP.

I like the taste of kale.

Kale is delicious as fuark.
But it is a winter green and needs to be exposed to temperatures below zero for the taste to really come through.

What the fuck am I reading?

It's very healthy, and what makes it better is that it doesn't taste as bitter as other vegetables with the same nutritional content.

Also, many traditional European dishes use it so it's not a meme in Europe.

Kale isn't _the_ healthiest food, but in terms of price and availability it is easily one of the most practical foods as a staple for a healthy diet.

>>7366341
Nutritional labels tend to only list the currently accepted essential nutrients, but a lot of why kale(and other leafy greens) are so healthy is because of all the other non-essential nutrients that have benefits(this is still a currently active field of scientific inquiry). So nutritional labels only gives you a part of the information. Having said all that, kale still rates pretty high in the nutrients-to-calories score.

>>7366369
Spinach is great too, I like to alternate between it and kale.

>>7366658
Chia is actually healthy though.

>>7366666
Masticate harder.

iktf

especially after a night of drinking, shitting the kale salad the next day is like shitting pure kale chunks

used to hit up this grocery store that had a salad bar that charged by pound. loaded it with kale, gorgonzola and sun dried tomatoes

it was cheaper than buying the items separately.
