Here is a link to an article on Kale, one of my favourite foods – http://www.undergroundhealth.com/kale-is-the-new-beef/

I really loved this article and it resonates with so much of the material that I learned on my e-Cornell course, both in terms of how nutritious Kale is and how the nutrients within it can have a positive effect on your body, and how a plant-based diet can have a positive effect on the environment, when the demands on our planet from a traditional diet are rapidly damaging our environment. (see the work of Dr Bruce Monger, http://www.geo.cornell.edu/ocean/EAS_OCEANOGRAPHY/people/monger.html

I have never described myself as a

greenie

but given all the kale I consume and my new found environmental awareness, I guess I am one!
