Raw Cabbage Salad (for tacos or asian inspired dishes)

This is something we use in our house all the time to add crunch, fiber, and flavor to some of our favorite meals. There is a general base and then you can add whatever seasonings you want to tailor it toward a mexican or asian inspired meal. What I love so much about this is that cabbage is actually really rich in vitamin C with zero sugar. It’s also an amazing way to add more fiber to your diet, and it keeps in the fridge for up to a week so you can use it in multiple meals. You can definitely play with the proportions as well to make more or less than what’s in the recipe.

Chop up about ¼ red or green cabbage (or half of a small one) and toss into a large bowl

Chop of ½ of a small onion and add to cabbage mixture

Add: 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, fresh squeezed lemon juice and about 5 pinches of salt.

Also add in your asian seasonings or taco seasonings* (see below)

With clean hands, massage and gently squeeze the cabbage for about 1-2 minutes (you can also wear gloves for this part; if donning gloves I recommend washing them with soap and water to get off any factory dust before touching your raw food)

Place in the fridge until ready to serve

Store in a closed container in the fridge for up to a week

Asian inspired: I like to add a dash of soy sauce, and sprinkle in some furikake seasoning (tiny seaweed flakes and sesame seed mixture) 

Mexican inspired: I like to sprinkle in a dash of taco seasonings, and a little bit of chopped yellow or orange pepper as well. You can even add a few cilantro leaves to this for freshness



Fat Salad

This salad recipe is full of healthy fat, protein, phytonutrients, and tons of antioxidants. These are pretty easy ingredients to keep on hand but you also don’t need all of them every time you want to make this; play around and explore what other healthy ingredients you like in your Fat Salad but always try to keep it as clean as possible. Here’s what I like to put in mine, and the quantities vary depending on your appetite so I’m just going to list what I put in it:


Greens of some kind (arugula, spinach, romaine, kale, etc)

Olives (with pits if you can stand it)

Chopped up cheese (I love cheddar, manchego, gouda, etc)

Diced or sliced avocado

Chopped bell peppers

Chopped cucumbers

Nuts (I like almonds in this)

Hemp seeds (for complete plant protein)

If you want fatty animal protein, this pairs well with sardines or smoked/sliced salmon.

For the dressing I typically use olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. If you want a little extra tang then mix that up with small amount of dijon mustard or balsamic vinegar to taste.

Finley chop all the veggies and mix it all together in a large bowl. Marinate overnight in the fridge and enjoy!



Massaged Kale Salad

 Kale is a super nutritious, fiber rich food full of antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin K and beta-carotene. Any kind of green leafy vegetable is going to also be full of chlorophyll too, which is key for keeping our blood healthy, our cells protected, and our hormones balanced. Although kale is well known for providing digestive support, it is actually one of the best things you can eat for your skin. Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, the most abundant structural protein found in the body. It’s also rich in beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is known for keeping skin clear and for encouraging natural exfoliation and cell turnover for skin cells. When you boost collagen and cell regeneration at the same time, you’re going to see fewer wrinkles, thicker collagen and a clearer complexion.


Here’s the recipe:

Chop or manually break apart a small bushel of kale (whichever kind you prefer) and place in a large bowl

Squeeze about ½ lemon onto the leaves

Add about a ½ tablespoon of olive oil

Add 2-3 pinches of celtic or himalayan sea salt

With clean hands, massage and gently squeeze the kale leaves for about 1-2 minutes (you can also wear gloves for this part; if donning gloves I recommend washing them with soap and water to get off any factory dust before touching your raw food)

Let it cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes

Take it out and add about ½ cup of pecorino or parmesan cheese and use a spoon to mix that around

Taste it and see if it needs more lemon or salt

Optional: sprinkle some walnuts and/or chopped apples for added protein, fat and fruit
