lemmygrad.ml discusses obesity, but I get mad about Kale and fail to recap the lemmy thread

https://lemmygrad.ml/post/4534632

The US subsidizes dairy and beef, when in reality putting that money into subsidizing grains and vegetables is so much more beneficial for people in the long run.

Can you imagine getting 4 heads of fresh lettuce or kale for 1$, it could be so much better.

just plant it????

If you live in somewhere where it only snows a few times a winter, you can grow a lot of varieties IN THE WINTER

...and if you live in Alaska or Siberia, you plant it in the summer

if you live in Miami or Mexico, then you need to plant it at the coolest time of year and possibly use a shade cloth

:marseydisagree: needing someone to grow your kale is peak bougie thinking, I am very unimpressed with lemmygrad rn. Even if they live in an apartment they should be demanding community garden or just take over an unused space and start adding kale.

:derpwhy: Kale is almost like Radishes it's so easy to grow, literally one of the easiest things to grow. A six year old can be taught to plant, water, and harvest kale.

just look out for these frickers: https://i.rdrama.net/images/17157865696505396.webp

My favorite kale is Red Russian kale

less ruffles, less bugs, easier to wash

Now here's a real praxis idea:

you know those stupid parkinglot landscapings? (expecially if you live in North America?)

kale that shit up

Take coffee grounds (nitrogen = huge leaves) and kale seeds and make it all kale. It would grow easily, and it would be an aesthetic improvement.

Kale is one of the most beautiful plants in existence.

Dear Kale,

Thanks for less than nothing.

Sincerely,

literally keep yourself safe, you're a leaf

I wish I could eat leaves like a gorilla and get jacked like an NFL linebacker.

The reality of kale is that you'll just starve to death eating the most useless Scientology designer meme food ever invented.

this is why I think meme vegans and health nuts are stupid for taking pictures of raw kale

It's not even that good raw

It complements mushrooms and potatoes nicely. You can grow kale in hard soil that you wouldn't want to put potatoes in.

eating 2000 calories of kale in a day would make your farts a war crime :marseyveryworried: :marseyfart:

I think each mogs the other down the list but kale may eek out on top overall.

But honestly if you look at price, if you snarf some broccoli and carrots you're gonna do great.

Even better, just eat eggs and string cheese and multivitamins.

Yeah, people really need to consider switching to a high carb diet to lose weight :tayshake:

lmao dramatards are incredibly out of touch. Someone working three jobs living in an apartment with a potted plant on the balcony can't just "grow their own kale". Only someone with a big backyard and help to take care of the actually important chores could think this was trivial.

It's worse than that. The feds control the whole dairy industry and keep the price artificially high. If you try to undercut their moonopoly, they'll frickin kill you, man. :marseyschizowall:
