Kale is a super food, we've all heard it. We see Kale everywhere. Kale chips, kale salad, kale smoothies you name it. All this hype about Kale, I figured I would try it and hope for some super powers.

Well I tried it ... not too shabby. I'm a fan. This concoction was made on a whim.

1 Cup of Kale- Rinsed and taken off of the stem chopped up

Carrots- chopped, as many as you would like. The more the merrier.

1/2 cup of chopped white onion

A handful of bean sprouts.

Mushrooms- I prefer white mushrooms. You can use a mushroom of choice.

1/2 cup of Cucumber- peeled and diced

1 tablespoon of Sesame Tahini paste mixed with equal parts water. You can use any type of Tahini you like. I used Joyva Sesame Tahini. Add Lemon juice by squeezing half a lemon into the Tahini water mixture. Add 1 teaspoon of garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to mix this well or you will get little bits of tahini clumped together and that's no fun for anyone.




The Biological Breakdown

Each food has its properties. There are certain nutrients you get from each. My interest is to know what each food provides and just how nourishing it can be. Based on research, a raw food diet can lead to exceptional health, a healthy digestive tract, healthy hair skin and nails and a sense of mind body soul connection. Combining food is intuitive, we do what feels best for our body. What works for one person may not work for another.

Sprouts- The sprout is the young growth of the seed; nuts, beans and grains. The enzyme inhibitors have been released and the food becomes enzyme rich. Sprouts are rich in chloropyll and a high source of protein.

Kale- Superfood. Anti-Inflammatory, High in Vitamin C, Good source of B6, Vitamin E, B2, folate, niacin and potassium just to name a few. The list goes on.

Carrots- Benefit the lungs, improves liver function, good for the digestion system, benefits the eyes- improves skin

Onions-Rich in Sulfur containing compounds that are good for detoxing, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and antiviral properties

Cucumbers-Cleanses and purifies the blood, strengthens the heart, benefits the skin, good for the digestive tract, anti-inflammatory

Garlic- may reduce blood pressure, can fight the common cold, may prevent Alzheimer's disease and dementia

Lemon- good for your skin, boosts immune system, detoxes your liver, aids in digestion

Tahini- aids in liver detox, promotes healthy cell growth, healthy skin and muscle tone, unsaturated fat!

See Below for a book on Holistic Health!



This book sparked my interest. I saw it one day sitting all alone on a shelf in Barnes and Nobles. It was love at first sight. I keep this next to my bed for you know... some light reading.

It is called Natural Healing Wisdom and Know-How compiled by Amy Rost. This books covers healing herbs, homeopathic medicine, meditation, macrobiotics, juicing, supplements, yoga, ayurvedic healing , acupressure and aromatherapy.

I hope this has been helpful on your raw food journey.

May the Raw Forces be with you.
