So if kale is a pair of wedge sneakers, broccoli is the Manolo Blahnik pump equivalent when measuring ‘timelessness’ and staying power?
Geez I know kale is trendy but it is food. If it is good for you and you can find a tasty way to make it, why not enjoy it? Please don’t compare kale to wedge sneakers. What did kale do to deserve such an awful comparison?
I have hard time finding kale pretentious: it’s traditional food in Northwest Germany, served with sausages (of course), so if needing to describe it as shoes, I’d go for sandals with white socks. Nothing pretentious about it, at all
Now, broccoli … appears in just about any magazine or newspaper wanting to shed health information: Broccoli Is Good Against Cancer. I do like it but I hate the hype: Green Birkenstocks with Swarowski crystals, maybe?
