With the holidays just approaching, and the load of carbs and sugary goodness that means “Thanksgiving” upon us, I think you may be seeing more recipes with kale in them here at HAG!
I have to balance the rest of my day with good and healthy food in order to be able to indulge in the best of the season’s treats without gaining weight or feeling laden down with no energy. Balance people. It is the way to have your cake AND eat it too!
My sister is notoriously the most healthy person in my family, and probably that I even know. So this is a recipe that she brings to most get togethers of ours, and we have come to expect some version of it, which quickly disappears every time! You can change it up using different ingredients, but the idea is to chop the kale very fine and then the grain and nuts, lends an addictive texture and taste that I just want to eat and eat! Like my body is actually craving the goodness- just unexpectedly delicious. Keeping it for a day after you make it is even yummier, make this the perfect salad to make ahead and take to work for a couple lunches, or to bring to a dinner party as a salad.
That’s it! Gluten-free. Soy-free. Kale-full. Mission-healthy completed.
