I’ve been on every diet known to man. I’ve vacillated from the extremes of raw foods to “I don’t care – I eat it all” but I’ve realized that I feel the best when I eat primarily vegan dishes. This is one of my most favorite raw food recipes introduced to me by my friend, Christine, over at Recipes By Christine.
(Serves 1-2 as a main dish or 4 as a side)
1 bunch of Kale (or combination of kale, mustard greens, spinach, swiss chard or collard greens) – remove thick stem and chop
1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Lemon Juiced (I use a citrus press)
1 Garlic Crushed
1 t Sea Salt (or to taste)
4 Green Onions, finely chopped
1 Avocado, diced
Combine all ingredients, except avocado in a large bowl. Work with your hands until the greens are wilted, add avocado and serve. If you prefer, you can mush the avocado too, it’s a little messier though.
For a variety – add any of the following: sunflower seeds, finely chopped tomato, sprouts, Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (natural alternative to soy sauce), fresh ginger and/or cayenne pepper.
