Kale 3.0: Recipies, SIGs, Netlingo and Silicon Valley Slang

Okay, why ratchet up Kale 3.0 now in SV, when we have just superseded Flax 9.0, which piggybacked on Omega 3.0?

First, Kale 3.0 is an out-of-the-garage, California cultivation, no longer a wild, ornamental Dinosaur. Omega 3.0, which had previously dominated SV markets, is now viewed as vaporware from the waters of the Evil Empire of the North, geared more towards meat-eating worders, than the lean, green SV hacker types who have embraced curry Kale 3.0 chips here in the valley.

Claiming a robust system after building green impetus, raw ownership tips the Kale 3.0 forecast with keen growth potential after a soft roll out of 2.0, following a prior, almost invisible usability testing of 1.0, within a strictly open source environment (due to post-processing, off-gassing issues). 

But what about the basic protective provisions?

Comprehensive detoxification properties (we've heard that before re: Cruciferous 4.0, however the bug-free and worm issues/claims were a bit hinky), Kaempferol and quercetin (a non-inflammatory claim by producers), plus K-A-C as the leading OS, ramping Kale 3.0 to screaming internal processing capabilities.

Market leaders favor 3.0 as a welcome iteration, having chewed through the bloatware of 1.0 and the kludge of 2.0. Version 3.0 leaves the oxalate pin benders out of the re-start up equation, although 3.0 is still not compatible for some users.

After an initial overseas offering, Kale 3.0 has been embraced by SV locals with noted celebrity deliverables from end users like Bobby Flay, Rachel Ray, and Gwyneth Paltrow, who is juiced on 3.0.

Kale systems are currently powering ops in after-hours SV resource centers (Whole Foods and New Leaf), where chips were displayed to market-determined, optimal demographics. (Not to be confused with the "Kale" Aps at or )

One recipe for  Paltrow's Kale Chips, which taste, remarkably, like potato chips:
  • 4 cups organic Kale (rinsed and patted dry)
  • 2 TBL Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Salt  
  • 2 tsp Pepper
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix oil and seasonings, then add the kale and toss to coat. Lay kale in a single layer on the parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes until crisp, being careful not to burn the edges.
