Kale is a diamond for me and I eat it up to 3 x's a week in my breakfast omelets and almost, if not, every day in my salads.

Is there any harm?  Am I overdoing it?  Just wondering due to trying to be compliant and clear up my internal inflamation.

You can get too much of anything.

I don't see how 8-10 servings per week of this is going to be a problem. Still, variety won't hurt.

All summer, I've been buying organic baby kale in big bags from Costco. Love it, can't get enough!  Light sauté with garlic and a splash of umeboshi plum vinegar...mmmmmmmmm....

Being way late to the kale bandwagon, I have to wonder if this craving indicates that I'm working out a vitamin K deficiency. If so, I hope it's corrected by the end of the season or I'll be in serious withdrawl...

This is a good question, though, because one of those big bags amounts to no more than 6 (and usually only 4) servings when steamed out, enjoyed 2-3 times per week.

They sell the baby kale year round. We eat it everyday too but usually raw. I have been buying chard at the farmers market and steaming it and freezing it for winter however I keep eating it so I only have one baggie left, . I think I'll stock up and buy as much as I can.

Good, you all are making me feel much better about my new SWAMI habit.  I do try to vary my greens each trip to the grocery store.  At my local one I can buy organic kale, Swiss Chard, and Dandelion greens.  I buy what looks the freshest and that usually is the kale.  The Swiss chard is great sliced up into very skinny strips as a bed for my other salad ingredients.  If none of the organic look fresh, I go for the regular mustard greens and/or collards.

Never knew greens could be so delicious and easy to prepare... and endless ways to add them to recipes.

Thanks, policychecker.     I'll keep that in mind.

I too eat kale probably 4 or more times a week.  I don't see it as an issue because I'm also eating other foods.

I also like to eat Kale raw.  Massaging the kale is one of my most favorite ways!

This thread has encouraged me, and thanks to this converstion I started to prepare kale more often.

I've steamed it together with fish and sweet potatoes for a light supper.

My favorite fish: Striped bass (swami s/f)
Fresh, sea farmed in Cyprus - this is as good as it gets over here

I recently found chopped organic kale in Costco's freezer. I now use that in place of frozen spinach when cooking with greens; usually added to a mixture of mushrooms and onions and then adding eggs. The only problem is that the kale is chopped tiny, so I can't use it to make kale chips that Jack might eat.

You'd have to be consuming unusual amounts during the meals, and eating inbetween, for it to probably matter. Essentially if you don't exceed your stomach acid, you'll probably be ok.
