Last spring, a band of kale lovers that included Dr. Drew Ramsey, formed a team to spread the message about the benefits of kale. Kale and other farm-fresh, nutrient-dense, whole foods are arguably more available than at any time in recent history.
“Team Kale”, composed of chefs, nutritionists, doctors, farmers, food advocates, parents, health coaches, and activists, went to work building http://www.nationalkaleday.org, a site that is full of recipes, resources, and a free “Kale Hero” Toolkit.
The inaugural National Kale Day was October 2, and President Barack Obama has been petitioned to officially make Kale Day the first Wednesday of each October. You can aid this effort by visiting http://www.nationalkaleday.org/petition.
On this remarkable date, the “Kale Heroes” celebrated kale around the country and the world. School cafeterias, hospitals, restaurants, and farmers’ markets participated.
I had a chance to visit with Dr. Ramsey during the Google event on that day. See what the excitement was all about!
