Kale. The Sexiest Cabbage.

Cecilia Mazumdar Stanger

People have strong feelings about kale. Some see it as the bile of the earth, others use it daily, for homemade smoothies, lotions and hats.

The bottom line is that kale is trendy. It has its own twitter account.

Kale makes people have opinions about cabbage. It’s the most talked about member of the brassica family. More power to it — when was the last time a vegetable was a major figure in pop culture?

I for one am happy that a dark leafy green has moved beyond the tired trope of the nagging parent’s punishment. Vegetables deserve a little more attention.
