Friday food porn: Vegetable love

Freshii's “Kale Effect” bowl.

Freshii's “Kale Effect” bowl.

Kale is the new “super green.” One serving of kale contains 5 percent of the recommended daily intake of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Proponents tout its anti-inflammatory properties, and say it has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk, boosts immunity, and is rich in Vitamins A and C. So eat your kale. This healthful “Kale Effect” bowl features kale, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, spinach and sesame seeds as well as peanut sauce over brown rice with chicken or tofu, $9.99, at Freshii in the Loop and other locations.
