Hi Bloggies! Thank you all so much for your support regarding my last post. I appreciate it so much!
Anyways back to business, it has been crazy hot here….like nearly 100F.
When it is this hot out raw foods/salads are the perfect thing to cool you down. Lunch today is amazing, refreshing and cooling- Massaged Kale Salad, Sauteed Portobellos (cold) and brown rice salad.
Massaged Kale Salad
- 1 bunch of kale, washed and ripped into large pieces
- 1 avocado
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1/2t garlic powder
- 1t salt
- 1/2 pepper
- dash of cayenne
- 1T nutritional yeast
Place everything into a bowl and then take your (clean) fingers and massage everything into the kale for 2-3 minutes; until evenly coated. Let sit for 5 minutes. Taste for seasonings and serve!
Brown Rice & Veggie Salad
- 2 cups cooked, day old brown rice
- 2 stalks of celery, diced
- 1/3 cup green onions, sliced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- Dressing: (whisk together)
- 1T dijon mustard
- 1t agave
- 2T red wine vinegar
- 2T olive oil
Toss everything together and serve. However this is best made at least 30 minutes prior to eating so that all the flavors can marry.
Alright Bloggies this is short because I have to get back to working.
Q: What is your favorite salad?
