    Kale and Coffee is the often hilarious, picaresque tale of how Kevin went from skinny, raw-food vegan faddist to bloated, out of shape omnivore before finding the middle way to an imperfectly healthy and more balanced life. The journey takes him from the Peruvian Andes to salt flats in Mexico to a pig farm and a butcher's shop near his northern California home.
