Kale Nut Salad

For some of us, football and food is a fun past time, and it seems that we inevitably end up eating not-so-healthy food with more calories than we care to imagine. The answer (well, other than not watching the game – whatever game that might be – and hiking or running or exercising in its place) – is to eat something healthier, tasty, easy, low calorie, and full of nutrients. If you are going to partake in eating lots of fatty foods, sugary foods or salty foods while watching your team play during football season, this is a great recipe for an easy, green salad that will enhance your experience and add some life to your body while eating the heavier foods. Give it a shot!

Here is the recipe for Easy Kale and Nut Salad. It will serve 4-5 people:

Ingredients:

2 large bunches of lacinato or green kale (about 8-10 cups), washed and de-stemmed

2 cups soaked and chopped walnuts or pecans (or a mix of the two)

½ chopped medium onion

6-8 chopped dates

Juice from 2 small limes or lemons

2 Tbsp. olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Process:

  1. Rinse kale and remove the stems in the middle.
  2. Chop the kale into bite sized pieces and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a food processor, chop the nuts and then place into large bowl with the kale.
  4. Add chopped onion and chopped dates.
  5. Add lemon or lime juice and olive oil.
  6. Mix salad and then massage it for about 30 seconds
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Enjoy!

Oh, and, today is Jan 19, 2014, and the Broncos are playing the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. So, GO BRONCOS!!!

There is nothing like a healthy and hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day! On a snowy day here last week, I decided to make one my favorite soups, Vegan Indian Red Lentil Vegetable! I made a very large pot so I could have plenty of left-overs. Here is my recipe, below, that will feed a family of four and then some!

Ingredients:

4-5 carrots, chopped

4-5 peeled potatoes, chopped

2-3 celery stalks, chopped

½ medium onion, chopped

4-5 broccoli florets, chopped

2 medium tomatoes, chopped (or 1 8oz can chopped tomatoes)

2 cups red or green chard, chopped

3-4 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp each of fresh oregano, sage, marjoram, basil

1 packet Gogi Indian mix

1 cup red lentils

1 cup brown rice (or a rice mix)

5-6 cups water

Process:

  1. Boil water and add rice and onions. Cook for about 10 minutes on high heat.
  2. Add all vegetables and all spices except potatoes and chard. Turn down to medium or medium low heat. Cook for 25 minutes.
  3. Add lentils and potatoes and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat or until both are done.
  4. Add chard and cook for 5 minutes longer or until chard is soft.

Enjoy!

The World Peace DietWhat is the World Peace Diet? A vegan diet, of course! However, the brilliantly-written book, The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony by Will Tuttle, explains thoroughly why a vegan diet is the only diet of choice from various perspectives – spiritual, political, ecological, nutritional and cultural – for this planet. I love books and I love living vegan, so I am facilitating a study of this marvelous book! Join me, Vilma Reynoso, Vegan Health & Lifestyle Coach and Peter B.Roth, Transformational Spiritual Healer, Astrologer and vegan, for a study and discussion of The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony. Our purpose is to dig deep into the reasons why people choose to become vegan and the reasons why it is vital to adopt the vegan lifestyle. You are welcome to join whether you are a seasoned vegan, a new vegan or curious about veganism and if you live in the Denver metro area.

Meetings will be held in Denver, CO, on the last Thursday of the month in January, February, March, and April of 2014. Each meeting will consist of a short presentation and recap of the month’s assigned chapters.  An open discussion will then follow.  To join this study, visit The World Peace Diet Meetup.

To learn more about Will Tuttle or to purchase a printed version of The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony, visit Will Tuttle’s website.

Printed, digital and audio formats of the book may also be purchased at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms

Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms: 35 Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Recipes for Ultimate Health and Vitality is a short, concise and informational e-Book outlining the health benefits of green smoothies. The book includes my easy recipes that you will love! If you are curious about green smoothies, looking to improve your health or eating habits, are a seasoned vegan or raw vegan, these recipes will entice your palate!

A bit about me, Vilma Reynoso, and why I wrote this book:

As a child, I grew up consuming my father’s Argentine barbecues every Sunday. Usually ill with colds as a child, I suffered from chronic sinus problems, asthma and respiratory ailments, and was overweight.  As a young adult, I suffered with horrible PMS, fibroids, chronic fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, asthma, intestinal problems, sinusitis, foggy thinking, and even depression.  After evaluating my health and the deaths of both my parents due to heart disease, I became motivated to change my life, one step at a time. I slowly began to change my diet from meat-based to vegetarian, then to vegan, and finally to a mostly raw vegan diet. Healed from most of my ailments, I have never looked back!

Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms: 35 Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Recipes for Ultimate Health and Vitality is one of several upcoming e-books. I have written it to demonstrate to you, the reader, how taking a small step, such as incorporating green smoothies into your daily routine, can dramatically enhance your life and health.
