I don’t know about you but I still don’t deal very well with long work days and healthy eating. When I work late my diet and exercise routine goes downhill. It usually takes me eating out or ordering take aways and I rarely have the energy and time to work out. Ever since I found this salad it’s been my staple dinner every weekend. You can add extra greens or dress the way you like it.
Super Green Kale Salad
4-6 cups kale
1 bunch fresh broccoli
1 bunch asparagus
1/2 an avocado
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour 2/3 of the dressing over kale in serving bowl and toss well. Add 2/3 of the cheese and toss again. Let kale sit for at least 5 minutes.
While the kale rests, cut the brocolinni and asparagus into 1 inch pieces. Cook the brocolinni and asparagus over medium heat for just a minute, just enough to take off the raw edge.
Mix in the vegetables with the kale, almonds, the remaining parmesan, and avocado, toss with the remaining dressing.
Food as Medicine:
Kale is among the most nutrient-dense commonly eaten vegetables. One cup provides 1,327 percent of the Daily Value (DV) for vitamin K, 192 percent of DV for vitamin A, and 88 percent for vitamin C.
I hope you enjoy it :).
A certain smell that fills the air, or that song that makes you smile every time the tune flutters in and out of your ears…
A moment in time with friends, or a memory that drifts back into the mind…
We all have those little things in life that bring along a sense of familiarity. It makes us feel comfortable, and at ease. Maybe it’s the bed you sleep in every night, or that trinket you keep by your side no matter where you go.
Just something I read scrolling down one of my favourite blogs and daily reeds. I like quotes that trigger so many thoughts.
Happy weekend, everyone! I am in for a very lazy one after my first week with my new Reception Class! Enjoy the last couple of warm days we have left.
