I not only eat kale, I wear it, too!

(Photo: Diana Dyer with her new kale hat!)
Thanks to my daughter-in-law with the sharp eyes who spotted this great hat and bought it for me for Christmas. After unwrapping it, I was so totally focused on admiring the great colors, thinking how observant (or intuitive) she was to know that I loved the colors purple and green, that I had not yet noticed that there was a kale leaf on the side of the hat!

WOW - what fun is this! I don't think I typically say much about my family on this blog, but I'll bet at least once I have mentioned on my blog that both of my new daughters-in-law are each amazing women that I just love to pieces. :-)

For those of you out there who want your own knit kale hat, all I can tell you is that it came from somewhere in the Seattle area. Good luck tracking down your own kale hat! I'll keep my eyes open and if I see anyone else wearing one (anywhere!), I'll take your picture and (with your permission) post it on my blog as one more true kale fan.

Where kale is now on my head instead of just my plate!

It's adorable! And a well-deserved reward for being such a great kale promoter. :) I saw a picture of a new acquaintance of mine on Facebook in which she was wearing a leaf of kale as a headband for a party, which made me like her even more. (It was curly kale, and somehow she had gotten it to wrap around her head, maybe attached to a ribbon or a real headband.) LOL.

It is really rare that I reject a comment, but I just did that from someone who asked me to post a link to her video about eating kale, preparing kale, etc. I didn't do so because of the 'up front' cute adult language (no, that was fine with me), but because she was eating a 10 ounce bag of kale daily as a portion for herself, often even twice daily!

I love kale as much as she does, maybe even more, but my blog advocates (1) moderation (moderation is always hard to define, but her portions are enormous and not even close to anything even loosely defined as moderation) and (2) also eating a wide variety of the Brassica foods, not just relying on any one food for any reason.

So enjoy your kale, please enjoy your kale,but please just don't believe it is the magic bullet for anything, no matter how cute the t-shirts, hat, headbands, etc!

What an adorable hat! And I love purple and green together, too. I did some googling to see if I could find one like that, but I suspect the knitter saw that as decoration rather than as kale (clearly missing a good thing! :) and so didn't label it as such. But I did find a much less subtle kale cap, should anyone be interested, a Shopzeus I Love Kale white cap on the Sears website.
