Why Eat Kale?
A couple of people have told me that I shouldn’t eat kale because it messes with the thyroid or something. The doctors have said in my lifetime that coffee is bad, coffee is good, wine is bad and wine is good. They also said the same thing about eggs and plenty of other food items.
I can’t tell you what’s good my friend. I’m not a doctor or scientists. I can only do what I assume you are trying to do and that’s make an informed decision.
So let’s talk about the nutrition you can get from kale.
