Happy Mother's Day Green Goddess Kale Slaw

I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day!!!( I will not be blogging this weekend)




Today, started out as usual with my wonderful early morning client. Then, my regular scheduled classes. However, as lucky as I am to be a Mother to my two healthy children, I still miss not being with my Mother. So, I hope all of you with family near that you take the time and enjoy them!!!


As for my workouts, The same. Intense everything....:)

I made a wonderful Kale slaw yesterday for dinner, and roasted some carrots and cauliflower.

Ingredients
Salad Ingredients
  • 5 cups chopped kale
  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
  • ¾ cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and shredded
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • Handful of sprouts (alfalfa, broccoli, etc.)
Dressing Ingredients

  1. In a large bowl, combine the kale, broccoli, scallions, and carrot. Reserve the pumpkin seeds and sprouts for garnish.
  2. Now, make the dressing by scooping the avocado flesh into a blender or food processor. Add the milk, lemon juice, coconut nectar (or medjool dates), vinegar, olive oil, and mustard.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Garnish plates of the salad with the sprouts and pumpkin seeds.
Notes
Coconut Nectar – to make this recipe comply with Vibrant Life Cleanse Program, swap out the coconut nectar for pitted medjool dates.
