EatKit Archive: KALE AND GREEN VEGETABLES

We had a great chat with a group of friendly practical dietitians, foodies, teachers and chefs on Twitter called EatKit. We talked about the latest craze for kale (the green veg) and whether it's hit your stores and whether it helps you eat more of the good stuff! Scroll down and read our archive from the night.

Our topic:  "Seeing green – why kale and green veg are hot right now"

 Date    Wed 16 April 2014

Time:    9pm AEST

These were our 4 stimulus questions:

  1. Q. Kale craze – is kale just a fad or the next big long-term trend?
  2. Q. Do the kale claims stack up? Is it really a super food?
  3. Q. Is kale the best green veg on the plot?
  4. Q. How do you use kale or your fave green veg? Share your recipes or ideas.

Eatkit is run in conjunction with dietitian Emma Stirling from ScoopNutrition
