A lot of people have new years resolutions. I am not one of those people! But, I am one of those people who really eat like its an Olympic sport from Thanksgiving all the way through New Years Day! I don’t read about or watch the segments on the tv shows that want to tell you how to “stay healthy” during the holidays. PUH-LEASE, I don’t have time for that I am to busy cooking and making things merry and bright!
But afterwards, its back to business! Eating healthy is important, obsessing about it not so much. So now that I have my Christmas tree at the curb (sad face), its time that I curb my eating habits as well. Here is the first of many yummy but on healthier side recipes I will be posting. Happy and Healthy New Year friends!
Sunshine Kale Salad
1 large bunch of kale, washed, de-stemmed and torn into pieces
1. Place kale in a bowl and massage it. Yes, you heard me right! Get your hands in there and give a couple of lovely squeezes, rub it together gently. It actually changes it from being bitter and tough to silky and sweet.
2. Then put in the raisins
3. In a small bowl whisk together the the lemon zest, grated parmesan, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
3. Pour the mixture over the salad and mix together coating the kale leaves.
