Let’s be clear. Kale itself isn’t all that weird. What is weird is the furor over this coveted, leafy green vegetable. MindBodyGreen reports kale is nothing new. In fact, it’s been cultivated for thousands of years around the world. Rumor has it that before 2012, Pizza Hut was the biggest buyer of kale. It didn’t put the veggie on a pizza, Instead, it used it to decorate the salad bar. In 2013, a PR firm took on the task of making kale cool. Celebrity endorsements and mentions by A-listers, such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Ellen DeGeneres, played a major role in achieving that goal.
