If been feeling fatigued and beat lately, and i have been thinking about the changes i've made in my life that have trickled this low energy effect downward spiral in my life. One of the things i noticed was the increase the consumption of carbohydrates. Everyone's body is different but something to with with carbs and my DNA does not go together.
So this will be my challenge for this spring! To cut on the processed Carb consumption and to discover healthier substitutions. As well as increasing the intake of raw foods (great if you are trying to cleanse and detox)
This salad will be my first experiment :
Wilted Kale Salad with a creamy Chipotle Dressing
a James Russel recipe from the Raw Chef Blog
For the wilted kale
4 heads kale (this will seem like a lot but will wilt down when the salt is added)
2c baby tomatoes, sliced
1c hulled hemp seeds
For the dressing
2 chipotle peppers*
½c olive oil
¼c lemon juice
- Remove the stems and then wash and cut the kale into small pieces. Place into a bowl, add salt and start to massage the kale until it wilts and takes on a ‘cooked’ texture.
- Add the tomatoes and hemp seeds to the bowl and mix in by hand.
