There's kale on the menu at this year's Super Bowl

“Kale is so trendy right now,” explains the event's executive chef

There may be 1.25 billion chicken wings consumed on Super Bowl Sunday, but at MetLife Stadium, at least, there will also be kale. The leafy green vegetable is good for you, chef Eric Borgia, who's overseeing the food at the Super Bowl, explained to the New York Post.

Plus, he added, “Kale is so trendy right now."

Those opposed to the farmer's market favorite will have other trendy options to choose from: Borgia's chicken-sausage and Tuscan kale sandwich will be representing Manhattan on his "Home Food Advantage" menu, which also honors Brooklyn (rice balls), Queens (pork and chicken steam buns with, of course, sriracha), the Bronx (a grilled chicken hoagie with broccoli rabe and provolone) and the Jersey Shore (Philly cheesesteak). Staten Island gets nothing, because "there's nothing personal about Staten Island."
