We use Kale at my work for decoration. I didn’t know a lot of people ate it.

According to my research they are both beneficial to your health. If you can eat both I think that would be a good thing.

Kale>Spinach however, spinach is a lot easier to buy in larger quantity’s. Kale is also better only by a slim margin which is why a lot of nutritionist will go ahead and recommend spinach b/c of the aforementioned reason. Also, when was the last time you saw a recipe that called for Kale, rarely ever, usually spinach is used in cooking for the most part…

I like them both.

I usually buy spinach frozen and cook it with other frozen veggies and either ground beef or ground turkey.

Kale I buy fresh and make salads with it as a base. For me the Kale took a little time to get used to.
