An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
My mother passed along this delicious recipe, and I’m sorry I don’t have the source! But I do have the decency to admit it and share it nonetheless—I wouldn’t want you missin out on this once, just because I’m a slacker!
INGREDIENTS:1- 2 Tbsp minced onion (red, white, yellow or green)1 Tbsp olive or flax oil2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)¼ teaspoon sea salt1 bunch of kale, shredded or sliced thinly1 cup red or green cabbage, shredded1-2 carrots, shredded or matchsticks½ to 1 avocado, peeled and chopped1 Tbsp raw sunflower seeds
Make the dressing by mixing together the onion, olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt. Set aside. In a mixing bowl combine the shredded kale, cabbage and carrots.
Pour the dressing over the kale and massage the dressing into the kale (with your hands) until the kale starts to soften. This is the key to breaking down the kale and making it easier to chew and digest. Pretend your are making meat loaf! Massage until the kale starts to get brighter green and softens. Add in the avocado and sunflower seeds and mix gently to combine. Enjoy!
