Health nuts, hipsters and foodies, rest a little easy: our so-called "kale shortage" may not be a shortage after all. According to NBC News, the rumored kale deficit is not as dramatic as it was made out to be. While Bejo Seeds, a major Australian-based kale supplier reported a shortage of seeds and "very, very tight" supply, the U.S. has not fallen victim to the lack of inventory... yet. Since 2007, the amount of kale grown in the U.S. has risen by 57%, and while we know how much you love kale in pasta, stir-fry, pesto and chips, there are plenty of other ways to get your fix of greens without putting this delectable leaf in danger. The next time you're craving kale, try spinach or Swiss chard instead:
