I've been spending time in an elementary school teaching kids about eating, planting and yes, drinking kale. Tricia Sedgewick from World in a Garden has launched an awesome "Eat More Kale" campaign. Kale. Trust me, it's gonna be big. Tricia made smoothies with the kids and told them some of the nutritional info about kale. Did you know that kale has more calcium than milk and your body absorbs it much more readily than moo juice? Did you know kale has vitamin K in it, which helps your blood clot?
Today I made a kale smoothie with coconut water, frozen blueberries, a banana and a handful of purple kale. It's Vulcan approved! Drink kale and prosper, dudes.
