Well, hello there, 2017! It’s so nice to meet you!
I hope you all had an awesome time ringing in the New Year! Now, it’s time to revisit those goals and check in with how you are eating. So…how are you eating? Be honest! Are you “starting” a new diet this month?
My goal with my clients is NO DIETS. The goal is to help you transition to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, so that when the new year creeps up, it’s not some daunting task to weed out all the junk! The reality is that you can eat clean 90% of the time, and allow for those treats you love (within reason) around those special times of year or whenever you’d like. It’s not about living a restrictive life; it’s about enjoying an empowered one!
Here is a kick ass, detoxifying and energizing recipe to get you pumped for your first week of 2017! I call it my Green Power Protein Salad! It’s jam packed with nutrients, plant protein and healthy fat!
Green Power Protein Salad
Ingredients (serves 4):
•1 bunch organic kale (your favorite variety), rinsed well and chopped
•1 can organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
•1/2 cup pre cooked quinoa
•1 avocado, chopped
•1/4 cup olive oil
•1 tsp apple cider vinegar
•1/2 fresh lemon squeezed
•Water, to thin, to your desired consistency
•Sea salt and pepper to taste
Whisk and drizzle over salad, then toss!
First, place kale in a big bowl with a bit of olive oil and massage for a few moments. This helps break this rough leafy green down a bit.
Place kale and other ingredients in a bowl and drizzle with dressing. Toss to coat.
Will store for about 3-4 days in tightly sealed container in fridge.
