Kale Sprout Avocado Salad - 1a

A few months ago I was inspired to expand my culinary horizons by exploring the world of raw foods. While I am no where close to becoming a vegetarian, I decided that I could certainly benefit by incorporating more raw vegetables and fruit into my diet.

You might recall my post about green smoothies and how I fell madly in love with this powerful drink that essentially replaced my breakfast. It’s still a breakfast that I enjoy practically every day although recently there have been a few very chilly mornings that called for a hot warm bowl of oatmeal. (Follow this link for my favorite oatmeal with caramelized bananas.)

It was at the same time that I fell in love with green smoothies that I also fell in love with an extremely simple lacinato kale salad that is easy to prepare and tastes fantastic. Additionally, it is very energizing and satisfying. I hope you’ll enjoy this salad as much as I do! The kale is invigorating!

At this time, I would like to confess that I baked a nice batch of brownies last night and eating this salad for lunch makes me feel just a tad less guilty about feeding my chocolate obsession. :)

Cheers!
