Eat More Kale

David and Goliath, again.  Chik-Fil-A (the second largest fried Chicken franchise next to KFC) is harassing a small town Vermont print maker for doing t-shirts that say: Eat More Kale (which he has been doing since 2000).  Eat Mor Chikin (apparently Chic-Fil-A is also concerned with literacy) is their slogan.

You get the rest, right?  Crazy evil corporation goes after a guy for doing what he’s been doing for ages because they think it infringes on their trademarked slogan.  Fuckin Stupid (to use language the Chick-Fil-A folks will understand).  So here is what you need to do:  Go HERE and sign this poor guys petition (his name is Bo).  And if you are feeling in the spirit of the holidays order a t-shirt, but don’t expect it any time soon, it would seem the Eat More Kale movement has been given a boost by Corporate Food  giant Chik-Fil-A and this guys is overwhelmed with orders till after Christmas.

Here are some of the subversive things going on at the eat more kale workshop:

Real threatening don’t you think?

Oh and don’t forget:  Eat More Kale (it’s good for ya!)

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
