I feel so lucky.
My man has been trying everything I make. Since he decided to not eat meat for a while and try to increase his enjoyment of healthy foods, he’s been willing to try and eat A LOT more new foods. I used to make foods, like kale salad, and offer it to him knowing he would say no.
Now he tries a new food, starting off with a positive attitude, and can actually enjoy it without initial negative thoughts about the food.
When he tried kale salad for the first time, here’s what he thought… ‘my first bite was really strong, but then I got used to it’. And he ate all of it, multiple days in a row! Score 1 point Heather.
It helps when we smother an entire meal in mama pea’s mmmm sauce… that stuff seriously made me go mmmm!
Things to dip in mmmm sauce… pesto red potatoes.
White bean pesto, portobello melts…
And of course kale salad.
Why eat kale salad?
Kale is packed with…
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- even omega 3’s!
Plus it’s just dang tasty.
Man Loving Kale Salad
- 1/2 bunch of kale, de-stemmed and chopped
- 1 cup sugar snap peas, chopped
- 2 carrots, grated
- 3 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 avocado, mashed
- pinch of sea salt
- In a large bowl add the kale, peas and carrots. In a small bowl mix together the tahini, lemon juice, avocado and sea salt to make the dressing.
- Pour the dressing over the kale salad and massage with your hands, covering every leaf. Allow the salad it sit for a while ‘cooking the kale’ while you make the rest of your meal. This is best to make first thing.
My next kale salad I’ll make for him… kale, roasted squash and pinto bean salad with creamy tahini lime dressing.
Bring on the nutrients! Right hun?
