Samaria shares the opinion of most 5 year olds on the topic of Kale.
What I discovered about a year ago, however, is the power of some good old fashioned competition.

Considering the health benefits of this magical vegetable, we consider this a worthy place to shift our dollars.
Let the games begin!
