By: Kara Parnell

When I've said yes to one too many chocolate chip cookies, or scoops of ice-cream, I bring back balance to my life with a beautiful, vibrant, jam-packed full of nutrition, salad! 

Avocado, tomatoes, spinach, kale, nuts and seeds, and fresh herbs! Not only is this gorgeous salad lovely to look at and bursting with flavour, but it brings a powerful nutritional punch as well. Think fiber, vitamin K, antioxidants, folate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and iron...and that's just from the Kale! 

Bring back beauty and balance to your table with this quick and easy, incredibly delicious salad.

Tips

It's quick and easy to massage kale before eating fresh, and it makes the kale much more tender and easy to chew and digest. Simply rub kale with your fingers for a few seconds or until kale turns a darker green.
