Bomb Kale Salad in Under 5 Minutes (Vegan Friendly)

This bomb ass kale salad is delicious and healthy. I believe in a healthy high fat diet with super foods and this just about covers it with a quickness. Due to Trader Joe's being one of the most convenient and fun places for me to shop, every single ingredient in this recipe can be found there. There are only 5 (now 6) ingredients so it makes it super easy and convenient, which is imperative for a busy working mom that rather spend quality time with her kids than taking extra time in the kitchen that's not always necessary.

Updating this to 6 ingredients thanks to the awesome comments below.  Adding fresh lemon juice to the tahini sauce to thin it out is such an excellent idea!!

Tahini Kale Salad

2-3 cups Organic Kale (I used Lacinto)
2-3 whopping Tbs of Tahini Sauce (add fresh lemon juice and water to thin it out to the consistency of your liking)
1/2 chopped Avocado
Handful of raw cashews
Several slices of Red onion to taste

Directions: (Brace yourself since it's very complicated ;P) Toss kale and tahini mixture together until blended well. Add the rest of ingredients and serve.  PHEW, that was tough.  (that's my sarcasm)

Meat eaters can add several ounces organic free range chicken for extra protein or some shrimp.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Thanks for sharing Lauren I made this last night and it was indeed the bomb! I changed a few things though. I thinned out the consistency of the tahini by whisking it with some room temperature water and a tablespoon of sherry and teaspoon of brown sugar. Then I substituted walnuts for cashews because that is what I had on hand and I topped it off with a sliced Morningstar chik'n patty for some added protein. It was filling, fast, and delicious! Will absolutely make it again.

I make something similar frequently - the only thing i do different is to thin the tahini with lemon juice and add some crushed garlic to it...and throw on some gogi berries too.

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.   Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings , developing the butt on the right would still be unlike
