There was a problem
Popeye got his strength from spinach, but imagine what could've happened if he tried kale! Organic green kale belongs to the brassica family, which also includes cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It's known for its characteristic bumpy green leaves. The cultivation of kale was encouraged during World War II with the 'Dig for Victory' campaign because it was easy to grow and provided vital nutrients that were missing from a rationing diet. Organic kale is as easy to cook with as it is to grow - steam, sautée or eat raw in a salad or wrap.
As guilt-free as eggs get. This cooperative of Amish farmers in Aylmer, Ontario raises hens in small flocks of 100 to 500 birds in tents on pasture. Weather permitting, tent doors are left open. These happy hens eat grass or organic GMO-free grain and veggie scraps, with full access to nest boxes and perches – though the eggs themselves are not certified organic these are some happy eggs!
