While browsing through several social networks, I often see posts saying "Kale is the new beef". Frequent shoppers of farmer's markets and stores like Whole Foods claim that the health benefits of kale are superior to that of beef. While I do grow kale and enjoy the taste, I do not particularly agree with this statement. Yes, kale grown in nutrient rich soils does have its health benefits, but I find them inferior to wild plants that grow throughout the US and beyond. Have you ever walked through cities or near abandoned buildings and found plants piercing their way thru cement?
