Simple Curly Kale Salad

This is a simple salad that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. It's so good for digestion and giving us the fiber we need for a healthy gut! 

 Kale has so many health benefits! It promotes detoxification, skin health, has tons of antioxidants, and has ample fiber... which we all need more of in our diets! Pair kale with lemon juice, also super detoxifying, onion, which our gut bugs love to eat, and extra virgin olive oil, the healthy fat... you have magic! 

The nuts add more healthy fat to help you absorb all of those amazing fat-soluble vitamins! 

The trick to making curly kale easier to eat, massage it with oil! It breaks down the hard fibers! Sautéing kale is also one of my favorite side dishes... I'll post that recipe soon too. 

Okay enough chit-chat... let's do this: 

 Ingredients: 

  • 1 bunch of organic curly kale 
  • 1/2 small white onion, diced 
  • Juice from 1-2 lemons
  • 4 Tbsps. grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup roasted pine nuts (can sub for chopped almonds or walnuts)
  • High quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. of high cooking oil, I prefer grass fed ghee. Avocado oil is good too! 
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions: 

Roasted Pinon nuts: 

  1. Heat a small sauté pan on medium heat
  2. Add about a 1tbsp of high cooking oil and allow to melt
  3. Add nuts to pan and turn heat low. 
  4. Consistently stirring allow to roast for about 4-5 minutes, until nuts are brown but not burnt. They can go from perfect to awful in seconds so keep a close present eye on them! 
  5. Once roasted, put them in a small glass bowl to cool.
  6. You can check my video of me roasting pinon nuts here... 

Put it all together!
