Simple Kale Salad

I love salad! I’m vegan so obviously right? J I like to have a salad every day for lunch as it’s a great way to get in a ton of veggies. This salad is my go-to recipe for potlucks, side salads or the base of a meal sized salad. The tartness of the lemon and the creaminess of the avocado is always a hit!

Check it out!

Simple Kale Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1-2 avocados
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1-2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 package alfalfa sprouts
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds

Directions:

  1. Tear the kale off the stems, wash and chop/shred into bite sized pieces
  2. Scrape out the avocado and massage it into the kale. Once it is all mashed and coated evenly on the kale, mix in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Enjoy!

Optional additions: shredded carrots, julienned red peppers and cucumber

Kale is such a great leafy green to add to your repertoire.

  • Low calorie
  • High fiber
  • High iron and calcium
  • High vitamin A, C, K
  • Filled with antioxidants such as flavonoids and carotenoids
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Can help lower cholesterol
  • Detoxifies your body (liver especially)

I pretty much eat kale every day in my salads and sometimes in my smoothies/juices. It can be a little much in smoothies, so if you’re new to green smoothies, start with spinach.
