Mediterranean Kale Salad – vegan, gluten-free and healthy

Kale… what is not amazing about kale. One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, kale has been shown to reduce the risk of cancers (bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate), detoxify at a genetic level, and has proven to lower inflammation. Therefore, the simple incorporation of kale into the diet can improve your health. How great is that!? As a result, I am always thinking of new ways to eat it. I drink my Killer Kale Smoothie for breakfast, my Kale Kleanse juice for a snack, which leaves room for a go-to kale salad… and everyone needs a go-to salad.

So what is the criteria for the PERFECT kale salad you may be wondering? Well first off it has to be simple to make. Anything over 15 minutes is too long for those of us with jammed packed lives. Secondly, it has to be composed of ingredients that are typically on hand. We cannot be worried about running off to the market for exotic spices and vegetables. Finally, it has to be outrageously nutrient-dense. So often we only get the chance to eat one great home-made meal a day, so we have to make it count! This means we must have the following in order to make our perfect kale salad; healthy fats and oils, raw organic vegetables, sea salt, high-quality vinegar and cleansing herbs.

Healthy fats and oils: potent anti-inflammatory agents, building blocks for hormones

Raw vegetables: fiber for lowering cholesterol and cancer risk, antioxidants for protecting against toxins

Sea salt, unrefined: chloride for HCL (hydrochloric acid) production, trace minerals for fluid balance and alkaline pH

High-quality vinegar: supports healthy digestion, improves mineral absorption, enhances insulin sensitivity

Fresh herbs: natural detoxifying agents, cleansing the blood of heavy metals and chemicals

    I am interested in colon cleansing and getting rid of yeast from antibiotics.
    What should I do first?

      Hi Irma, the main concern about doing a round of antibiotics is the destruction of the healthy gut bacteria. Therefore, I would suggest getting on a round of probiotics. The product I think is most effective (definitely worth its cost) is by Dr. Ohhira. I would take them for 1 month. If you are certain you are dealing with yeast, I would first make sure you are not dealing with heavy metal toxicity (many times yeast overgrowth is due to heavy metal toxicity, esp. mercury). Then you can look into a Candida cleanse. My Aloe Intestinal cleanse would also be helpful. You can learn more about it Here.
