Today is the day that millions of “diets” begin and tomorrow is the day that millions of “diets” fail. The good news is that you don’t have to “diet” to be healthy, happy, balanced and full of life!
Sure, the holidays introduce more sugar into our diet. We consume more treats and drinks that normal, but you don’t have to give in and surrender to a life of sugar crashes and tight pants.
Instead starting a “diet” today, set the intention to fill your plate with vibrant, colorful, nutrient dense foods. The glowing effect it will have on your body will be reason enough to continue eating a balanced, array of natural and whole foods.
The perfect way to jump start your New Year is with this delicious Kale Salad. Kale is a superfood, jam packed with vitamin, minerals, and fiber. The lemon is a great detoxifying ingredient, and the avocado adds a punch of heart healthy fat to keep your skin glowing and your hunger at bay.
Kale Salad with Avocado
1 bunch kale
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 avocado (peeled and chopped)
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1 juice of lemon
1/2 teaspoon Bragg’s liquid amino acids (Reduced sodium soy sauce would also work)
1 teaspoon Sesame seeds
Step 1: Chop kale and red onion. Grate 1 or 2 carrots.
Step 2: In a bowl, combine kale, carrots, avocado. Add lemon juice and Braggs.
Step 3: User your hands or a spoon to massage salad ingredients together. Massage the kale and other ingredients until well coated. If you like your kale a bit more tender, feel free to let it sit and marinate for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and enjoy.
