Food: groceries & a new salad obsession


SAturday’s breakfast: the usual banana-egg pancake. This time instead of coconut flour I used almond flour. It’s nice too but I prefer the texture of the one with coconut. It’s more cake-like.

oatmeal is better than rice because rice could be constipating.

And here’s my new salad obsession: massaged kale salad with tahini-avocado

IMG_5187

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cups of kale
  • 1 cup chopped cherry tomato
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 serv. firm tofu, scrambled
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper

Method:

1. Prepare the dressing: tahini, lemon juice, maple syrup, salt and cayenne pepper well mixed.

2. Pour the dressing over kale, add chopped avocado, tofu and mix well with hands (or massage it).

3. Add cherry tomato and mushrooms.

4. Let it sit for 30-60 min before serving.

5. Prepare to enjoy a tasty, filling and delicious salad!! 🙂

Q: Do you like kale? What’s your favorite way to eat it? I didn’t like kale first unless it’s in chips form. But lately I’m obsessed with it, it has became my favorite green veggie. The key to eat it raw is to massage it with the dressing and let it sit for a while before serving. It’s soooo delicious and full of nutrients.

  1. I love your grocery haul! I’m a huge fan of the Theo chocolate bar with salted almonds; if you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend that you do! It’s one of my favorites, but Lindt will always hold the #1 spot. 😉

    The kale salad looks delicious! I don’t typically like it raw, but I’m a big fan of kale chips–especially when they’re sprinkled with nutritional yeast or Parmesan. I may have to give your recipe a try, though!

    Happy Monday!

  2. I love kale, and massaged kale salads are great. One of my favorite ones has spicy Korean pepper paste.

    I love Justin’s chocolate almond butter. Haven’t had it in a long time…

  3. That salad looks wonderful! I like to massage kale with a fig balsamic dressing….so good!
