Meatless Monday: Lettuce Love

26 weeks

Three weeks have passed & the baby has upgraded in size to a head of lettuce! Let me tell you, I can definitely tell that baby ‘L’  has grown since being a grapefruit. While the hub & I were in Scottsdale over Valentines Day (post to come) my bump was on full display in my teeny two piece bikini! Baby was sure loving the warm weather & floating in the pool.

Anywho…let’s get our salad love on! Here are a few of my fave salads that I have posted over the past year or so.

Greek Salad with ‘Feta Cheese’ – this ‘feta’ is to die for

Dharma Kale Salad – I have been craving this salad & having it multiple times per week lately

Brussel Sprout Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette – brussel sprout heaven

Cabbage & Carrot Salad – clean & simple

Hope you enjoy your Meatless Monday!

Dharma Kale Salad

_MG_2003

I know this picture looks alot like my Moroccan Spiced Lemon Dressing recipe I posted not to long ago – but I swear it is WAY different!

You know when you get into something & you just cant get enough of it – whether it be a pair of great fitting jeans, a tv show that you can watch an episode marathon of or a meal that you crave, even right after you just take that last bite? Right now I am into my one flannel, the TV show Revenge (don’t judge) & this salad!

I am talking about the Dharma Kale Salad. I love it, can’t get enough of it – just finished it for lunch & already thinking about making it for lunch tomorrow. I mentioned in a previous post that I finished reading The Beauty Detox Solution, well this is a salad that the author, Kimberly Snyder mentions in her chapters. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Wash & dry 1 head of kale – strip the leaves off the thick spine stem by hand, discard stalk & place leaves into a large bowl
  2. Add a pinch of sea salt into the bowl & begin to break up the kale into smaller pieces (the salt tenderizes the kale)
  3. Wash & add: 1/2C sprouts, 1/4C flat leaf parsley & 1 diced tomato
  4. Cut an avocado in half & scoop out one side into the bowl
  5. Cut a large lemon in half & squeeze the juice from one half into the bowl
  6. Add: 1T dulse flakes, 1T, nutritional yeast, 1T hemp seeds & cayenne pepper to taste (I add 1/4t)
  7. Now get in there with your hands & mix up this salad!

This salad is so sensational that I even got the hub into it! The creamy avocado, lemon juice & nutritional yeast really give this salad a killer taste & it is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes & minerals (all the nutritional building blocks your body needs)!
