Kale Eating Contest
Move over Hot Dog Eating Contests. Youre being replaced by The
Worlds Healthiest Eating Championship!!
On Saturday, July 9, 2016, Healthy Options presented the very first
kale eating contest at the Taste of Buffalo, in Buffalo, NY. Bowls
of Kale with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, were served to 10 competitors.
The object was to eat as many bowls of Kale as possible in 8 minutes.
The winner was Gideon The Truth Oji from Georgia. He consumed
25 ½ cups of kale. In all, 45 bowls of kale were served. Oji won the
top prize of $2,000. Oji is not new to eating contests. He participates in
events around the country.
Organizers at The Taste of Buffalo event, are likely to make the Kale eating
contest a yearly event. Will Buffalo become the capital of Kale consumption,
akin to its honor as the home of the Buffalo Wing? It remains to be seen.
