Organic Kale Salad from Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market

20140622-160801-58081427.jpgI went to the Dupont Circle farmers market today and bought some fresh kale. I made a raw kale salad with kale, apple cider vinegar, hemp seeds, olive oil, munchi curry, and himalayan salt. 100% Organic.

Ethiopian Lentils on a bed of Power Greens with Sprouted Grain Chips

I cooked sprouted lentils with Ethiopean Berbere and finished them with sesame oil and Nama Shoyu.

I made a salad out of baby Power Greens (kale, chard, spinach) and added sunflower sprouts on top.

I topped the salad with lentils and garnished with homemade tortilla chips made out of Ezekiel tortillas! :)

Pizza is for Vegans too… and other tips for a healthy Italian Dinner

Salad + Pizza combo can be for vegans too.

Remember arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette and Parmesan cheese?
Try something even more healthful: Kale salad with balsamic vinaigrette. How to loose the cheese, but keep the deep, rich, umami flavor of Parmesan? Nutritional yeast, and tamari.

Recipe: Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, himalayan salt, black pepper, nutritional yeast, a dash of tamari.
(Optional: add olives and crushed raw cashews. These will compliment the taste, and add to presentation.)
