Often times I will spend so much time working on coming up with a fun new snack or recipe that keeping fully stocked in the kitchen slips my mind… well, that happened last night. I got home from crossfit and was so hungry but didn’t have anything to make a “proper” meal.
I remembered a recipe I saw a while back for kale salad. The one I recall used peppers, onions, lemon juice, oil, and some other toppings, which all sounded great- but I needed something fast.
I grabbed a bunch of kale and pulled apart into pieces, removing the stems, rinsed, dried, then transferred to a large bowl.
Next I took a very ripe avocado and literally squished it into kale.
I kept mixing, squeezing the whole avocado pieces and mixing, blending, squishing until the whole salad was covered and very few chunks of avocado remained. I threw in some garlic powder, some Real Salt, and pepper.
I topped with a sprinkled of Go Raw’s Spicy Seed Mix and viola!
This salad is super refreshing, simple, and satisfying.
I paired it with some leftover cauliflower rice, baby carrots, and beet hummus.
I also whipped up a piece of paleo bread with a new mix I tried yesterday after hearing about the easy combo on Instagram. Take 2 eggs and beat until mixed. Add a dash of salt and some garlic if you’d like. Add 2 tablespoons of coconut flour and mix well. Pour onto a greased baking sheet or parchment paper. Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes, then flip. Cook another 5, then continue cooking, flipping sides until browned to your liking. I did about 20 minutes total, flipping 4 times.
This picture shows the batter poured and flattened out a bit with a spatula.
Talk about an odd combo- but it was delicious. These foods totally represent Tenet number 8 that I posted earlier this week:
Instead of going for a quick fix dinner and stopping at a fast food joint- I knew I could come up with something using delicious, whole foods.
Hope your spring is off to a great start!X
