Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot…

OK so it’s been 100 degrees the past three days in NYC for those of you that live in New York this is torture. It literally feels like your standing in a steam room its freakin awful. The weather people say its a heatwave, heat advisory blabla I say make it stop NOWWW!!! It’s too hot to be outside unless you’re standing submerged in an ice cold pool. Yesterday i decided I’m gonna beat the heat. I dont know about you but when its this hot all my body craves is cold raw veggies, salads and light raw foods. I made a pretty brainless and easy Raw Kale salad which was so delish and totally satisfied my craving for cold and crunchy.

Raw Kale Salad

2 bunches organic kale

2 Lemons

1 small red onion

1 avocado

1/4 cup of very high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil

freshly ground sea salt

freshly ground black pepper

ENJOY and stay cool, this is a perfect brainlessly easy recipe for when your brain is fried in this heat…

  • Wash and chop the kale, take out the thick stem that runs through the middle (its a little tough to eat it raw) Place the kale after its rinsed and dried in a large bowl
  • finely slice the red onion, and add to the kale.
  • season the kale with freshly ground salt and pepper squeeze the juice of two lemons and drizzle with the olive oil. Toss it to coat, cut the avocado into medium sized cubes and add to the salad after its been tossed so the avocado doesn’t get mushy.
  • If you’re not serving it right away place in the fridge and serve cold.
  • Kale is one of the most healthy vegetables. It is an anti cancer, antioxidant, aids in digestion, anti- inflammatory, and aids in the natural detoxification process that your body goes through. That being said, you cant compare eating kale cooked to the benefits of eating a raw kale salad, so many of the vitamins are lost when you cook it, take advantage and eat it cold and raw!
