Kale is the king of leafy greens. It may not look appetizing but it’s very tasteful when cooked/massaged right :)
It contains so much goodness: beta-carotene, calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, C, K, and more.
For maximum yumminess, nutrition, and minimized pesticides exposure choose organic, biodynamic or responsible local growers when possible. Serve it solo or with your favorite cooked grain (I love quinoa) and a side of root vegetables.
1 bunch kale, any variety (stems removed, chopped)
1 chopped avocado
roasted pumpkin seeds
2 TBSP EVOO
2 drops doTERRA lemon oil (can use lemon juice instead)
1 TSP umeboshi plum vinegar (very salty, so no extra salt needed)
1 TSP pomegranate reduction (sweet & sour)
black pepper (to taste)
In a medium mixing bowl, place chopped kale. Massage with your hands until the kale starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Raw kale is pretty tough to digest, so massage it to break down the membranes, take the edge off and make the nutrients more bio-available (absorbable).
