Lena’s Learning Korner- Kale from Wacky Tacky Productions on Vimeo.
Cynthia: Thank you, Lena, for saying what a lot of us already think about kale with this hilarious video.
Marcy: I hate kale.
Cynthia: Well, it certainly is a stubborn vegetable.
Marcy: I hate it.
Cynthia: It’s somewhat aggressive, isn’t it?
Marcy: I hate it.
Cynthia: It’s intractable. Reticent. Bitter. Okay, that’s it. We’re officially breaking up with kale.
Marcy: You can break up with it. I’m going to murder it.
Marcy rushes towards the leafy greens sitting on the kitchen counter. Imitating Lena – Marcy ferociously rips apart the leaves and spits them out.
Cynthia: Noooo! Marcy. Stop. That’s not kale. That’s red leaf lettuce. Or… was.
Marcy continues tearing apart the lettuce and stomping on it until it is nothing but a pile of green mush.
Cynthia: Ah… and that was going to be a nice salad for my lunch.
Marcy: Yeah, well, it’s dead now.
Marcy: Why would you have a salad when you could have Friskies instead? (shaking her head) Humans.

I loved Lena's video but I do put kale in my smoothie where it's camouflaged by banana, orange juice and kefir. Other than coloring the smoothie a putrid shade of green, you'd never know it's there.
So it's not a pretty shade of green? Too bad. But at least you are getting all of your nutrients.
I'm going to have to disagree with you and Marcy on this one. I actually like kale. Like I'll make kale chips, stew kale instead of collards, eat kale salad or put kale in my sandwiches in place of lettuce … it's like a more robust lettuce. Because I kind of can't stand a soggy sad piece of lettuce. ;o)
Yay! That is so awesome that you have found so many ways to eat it. It really is soooo good for you. I still need to try to make kale chips. Oh – and I have stewed kale with mustard greens and collards and it is very tasty.
Ugh. Yeck. Totally agree. So gross. That video is hilarious! That girl was so brave with the pasties.
I would rather eat Friskies! : )
You have excellent taste, Jenni! I am very found of of Ocean Whitefish. Perhaps you would like to join me for dinner sometime?
