  • Extra virgin olive oil (cold pressed)
  • 2 – 3 cloves of garlic
  • Orange, yellow or red bell pepper (optional)
  • 1 lemon
  • Himalayan salt
  • Turmeric
    (use organic ingredients when possible)


Place kale in a bowl.  Pour extra virgin olive oil over kale. Squeeze lemon juice over kale (1/2 or whole lemon (taste). Using your hands blend oil and lemon juice until liquid is equally distributed over kale. Using a garlic press.  Press 2 – 3 cloves of garlic. Sprinkle Himalayan salt and turmeric. Chop bell pepper.  Again blend all together.


Be mindful as you are preparing your kale salad. Feel the textures as you blend the ingredients with your hands. Smell the aromas of garlic, lemon, olive oil and bell peppers. Also see the colors of the ingredients. Taste the flavors and feel the textures as you enjoy eating your salad. Most importantly feel the love you put in to preparing this salad for yourself and or for your loved ones.
