Nutrient Bomb Kale Salad

Do you remember that time you were fed up with feeling blah + puffy + addicted to unhealthy foods so you decided to start hitting the salads + elliptical machine hard? Yeah...I do. We've all been there. We know where that lead....camp no-where. 

Today's post is not about how useless the elliptical machine is {which it is for the most part}. It's about how useless the average salad is. A common thing I see, is people putting forth good effort in trying to be healthy...they make choices that they THINK are healthy and then when they don't start feeling awesome, they give up and go back to the poutine {that's another way to say disgusting in Canadian}
Glowing health is evident in a body that places a priority on counting Nutrients instead of Calories. 

And believe me...the difference is radical. You feel it...you look it....and choosing the right nutrient dense foods creates a cycle of loving the foods that love you back. It's beautiful. And so is this salad I'm about to share with you.

 it for 3 reasons:
1. It is packed with nutrients, colour, texture and taste. like woah.

2. It will hold up in the fridge for 3-4 days WITH dressing on already. So - you can make up this monster on a Sunday and it will get you through most of your lunches through the week

3. I made it for my Love + Lemons Gourmet Group last night and it was rated "Best Salad in the Entire Universe."


1 bunch kale, dino or curly - all chopped up 
2 cups arugula 
1 head broccoli + stem, chopped finely 
1 small beet, peeled + chopped
1 carrot, sliced
1-2 sprigs basil, chopped 
handful blueberries

BLUEBERRY KOMBUCHA DRESSING:
1/4 cup blueberries
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 inch piece ginger, peeled + chopped 
2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp raw honey 
1/4 cup kombucha* or water if you don't have 
salt + pepper 
1/4 cup avocado oil, or EVOO 

TOPPINGS:
2 tbsp 70% dark chocolate {or higher}, finely chopped
1 pear, sliced
handful raw sunflower seeds
handful raw  pumpkin seeds 
1-2 tbsp hemp seeds 
Slice up a hard boiled happy egg on top for complete protein

Method:
Put on some tunes {or the latest Holistic Health Diary Podcast episode} and start chopping. Notice how much calmer you're already feeling :)

Make the dressing: Put all of the ingredients in a blender for about 20 sec.

In a large bowl, massage the kale and chopped broccoli a bit of the dressing Keep massaging until the leaves seem a bit more tender. Chop and prep all of the other salad ingredients and set aside.

Mix everything together and add the toppers. Will store in the fridge for about 3 days.
