*Digestive Friendly* Cheesy Miso Kale Salad

We’ve been on a serious mission to Eat More Kale! Why? Well, because I love kale, and so does Caleb plus it’s packed with nutrition and even being touted on some food authority sites like this one on Organic Authority as “the new beef”.

I also happen to love foods that are high in Vitamin A & K for skin health and getting the raw food glow! Healing acne requires a healthy amount of both of these Vitamins, so eat more kale :) This salad is also laced up nicely with pro-biotics (the chickpea miso) so it will improve digestion as well as satisfy your hunger.

 Ingredients:

  • 8-10 cups of Kale
  • 1-1.5 tbsp. Chickpea Miso
  • 1 Lemon, Deseeded, Juiced
  • 1/5 tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tbsp. Hemp Seeds
  • 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes

Instructions: Chop and de-stem your kale and place it in a large bowl. Massage in your miso and lemon juice, make sure you really give it some love with your hands to soften it up and spread the mixture evenly through out the whole salad. Sprinkle on your nutritional yeast, black pepper and garnish with slices of fresh, juicy cherry tomatoes. Yumaroo!
