In the spirit of a fresh start, let’s cue the token salad recipe to kick off another year of healthy, feel-good recipes!

Weekend Glow Kale Salad

When I started using these simple tricks, my kale salads went from bitter and hard to swallow to mind-blowing delicious! Kale is said to be a ‘beauty’ vegetable because it improves skin tone, complexion, and gives you a great glow. It’s also just as beautiful for your insides too!       My 3 tips for preparing raw kale: 1. Remove the stems when you plan on eating it raw (and some people remove the stems for cooking too-it’s personal preference). The stems are the bitter part of the plant. I used to always use the stems and...

Over The Rainbow Cabbage Salad with Tahini-Lemon Dressing

Purple vegetables, such as this cabbage and others like eggplant and blueberries, contain anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are chemicals that protect body cells, decrease the spread of cancer cells, and more. Be sure to add some toasted sesame seeds (or hemp seeds would work) on top to compliment the salad nicely. I served it with fluffy garlic “buttery” quinoa, as a complete protein source.         INGREDIENTS: About 6-7 cups of roughly chopped red/purple cabbage (I used 1/4 of a large cabbage) 1 carrot, shaved with a peeler...

Detox Salad

Whole Foods salads typically have short ingredient lists as well as vegan and wheat-free options. They are the perfect inspiration for salads at home when you’re getting bored of the usual lettuce and vegetable routine. World’s Healthiest Foods reports that cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, and mustard greens) are said to be detoxifying because they provide support for the immune system, inflammatory system, hormonal system, detoxification system, and antioxidant system.     These...
