Winter Kale Salad

 I LOVE Joe's new website, check it out for some amazing recipes, inspiration and motivation. I watched his video, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead at my chiropractor'sor's office and was really impressed with his no bull attitude and how simply his reboot plan is. 

So when I discovered his new website, I was quick to check out his recipe section and try them out.  I have kale in my smoothies everyday but did not think I would enjoy chewing this rough thick leaf at all.  So I made the salad for my husband and of course, had to taste to make sure the seasoning was ok.....well, it became a salad for two instead of one.  I try to keep my fat intake low so for me it would not be an everyday salad but for a special treat or once or twice a week....yum!

Winter Kale Salad

1 bunch kale, stems removed (could use spinach or romaine)

1 T. olive oil (original recipe uses 2T)
2 T. lemon juice
Sea salt & black pepper, to taste

2 T sunflower seeds (could use pumpkin as well)
