A little over a year ago I adopted a plant-passionate lifestyle. I've been able to heal and renew my body, get off medication, avoid insulin, drastically reduce my PCOS symptoms and shed 30 pounds.
Today my eating philosophy is 80/20. I eat vegan meals 80% of the time, vegetarian the other 20%. I eat healthy 80% of the time, but my mom makes the best vegetarian soul food, my grandma throws down for the holidays and I can’t always drag my friends (or my wife) to the Mom and Pop vegan restaurant. I see it like this: even if you can't do a total overhaul of your diet, simply start by cleaning it up. Add more fruits and veggies, reduce gluten, and experiment with using food as medicine.
So this may come as no surprise: I'm absolutely obsessed with kale. In ALL varieties. I have mastered kale. My favorite things on the planet are green smoothies and kale salads. Today, I’ll share one of favorite concoctions with you. I call it: Plant Goddess Kale Salad. Everyone I've made it for loves it.
This recipe is gluten free, vegan, raw and paleo friendly (skip the salt if you want). Pure perfection.
