Yes, there are about 1000 ways to enjoy kale (that most people love) and this is one! Massaging the kale is an interesting practice, if you haven’t tried it. You literally get right in there with your kale, and massage it until it naturally wilts and the fibers breakdown. (so much better than raw kale!)
While I make so many versions of massaged kale salad (feel free to try your own), this one is usually a hit - especially amid those who are new to kale.
Massage up a batch and see for yourself.
Kale has one of the highest ORAC values (levels of antioxidants) of any plant you can eat plus this rich leafy green helps reduce inflammation and cleanse your liver!
By now, you may have realized that I am a bit obsessed with beets. All sort, all colors of beets. This is a super tasty and pretty warm beet salad that hits the spots and supports your liver all those detoxification phases to help you to feel your best.
The betaine found in beets encourages your liver to rid the body of toxins.
Make up a batch ahead of time and munch on this tasty side dish or meal (if you add the nuts and seeds for some protein) all week long.
I know it is hard to believe we are including CAKE here in this cleansing themed time, but I also want you to know that with healthy and natural ingredients, you can create oodles of guilt-free comfort foods.
We chose lemon because lemon is known to cleanse the liver, and turmeric because of it’s superior anti-inflammatory properties all blending with this delicious and baking friendly coconut flour.
