A SUMMER SALAD RICH IN TASTE AND TEXTURE.
I have to admit I am not really much of a salad girl, so this is one of my favorites. What most consider a salad is lettuce, cucumber and tomato and it is just not enough food for me.
I tend to say if things will fly off my plate in the wind then it will not hold up in my body for long enough to keep me full and satisfied. A good salad that works as a meal, has to have a lot of fiber to give some texture, density and a lot of nutrients; the kale and the roots have that. And it has some savory and sweetness to it. I am a sucker for something sweet, but I don’t eat sweets, so roots help feed my sweet tooth.
The marinated kale (don’t eat it raw) and the mixed root recipes are below. All you have to do is mix it up. Add some good fats and protein from olive oil and nuts. Here I used pistachios; they are tasty and high in antioxidants.
Marinated Kale Recipe
THIS ONE IS A “HOW TO” - because you will use this recipe over and over again.
Eating kale raw, and many other vegetables for that matter, is very hard to digest and can cause gas and discomfort. Marinating and massaging/pressing breaks down the cell wall that our digestive enzymes in the stomach otherwise would have to break down as part of the digestive process. This marinating process however leaves all the nutrients intact since there is no heat involved in the “cooking” and it is as close to eating raw food as you can get, -without it actually being raw.
- mirin, brown-rice vinegar or lemon juice.
Chop the kale finely. You can make the whole bunch or take out just for one meal. For one meal you are going to want at least 5 stems of kale. I normally make the whole bunch at a time because it will hold up well in the fridge for the next meal.
Put all the chopped kale in a stainless steel or glass bowl, drizzle a large dash of sea-salt over it (about 1 – 2 teaspoon depending on how much kale you are making) and start massaging with your hands.
Add some mirin, brown-rice vinegar, or lemon juice. Keep massaging, add olive oil.
Put a large plate over the kale a bowl to press it down. You can omit this if you have massaged it really well. You can use a rock or something heavy on top if the plate does not press it down well. This is how you can easily make a pressed salad with most vegetables actually.
Leave for a good 20 min. before it is ready to serve.
You can keep marinated kale in the fridge for a at least another day.
Sooo Yummy Roasted Root Mix
I LOOOOOOVE ROOTS.
They are great for a summer salad and you can make up a big batch and use them with different salads throughout the week. Add them to kale salad, grain salad, quinoa or legumes. Just easy and amazing.
1 1/2 cup each
- chopped each carrots,
- (yellow) beets,
- sweet potato
- small grape tomatoes,
- 8 whole cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp grated ginger,
- 3 tbsp sesame oil,
- 1 pinch chili salt,
- 12 whole black pepper corn crushed
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
Put the veggies in a baking dish and pour the dressing over it.
Bake it in the oven for about 45 min. Stir the veggies about 25 min. into the cooking time.

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
