The Most Delicious Cleansing Kale Pear Salad Recipe
One of my daughter’s first solid foods was a pear. For months, I bought pears like they were endangered.
Apparently, I missed the mommy memo that said baby’s taste buds change at the drop of a hat and that one day they would no longer want pears regardless of the fact that you have 10 of them on your counter.
I created no less than 5 pear recipes in a matter of days. This one below is my favorite.
Makes 2 servings
- 4 c kale
- ½ avocado
- ½ pear, sliced
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 2 tbsp hemp hearts or seeds
- Cube and scoop out flesh of avocado and mix with honey
- Add in kale and massage so it’s well coated
- Place on a plate, top with pear and hemp hearts or seeds and enjoy!
I like to think this salad is perfect as is but, of course, you can add your own touch! Feel free to exchange 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or 2 – 3 drops of stevia for honey.
You can also throw in some cucumbers for added nutrients.
If you don’t have hemp hearts available, I would suggest you pick some up stat! In the meantime, feel free to use pine nuts instead.
TRANSFORMATIONAL NUTRITION BENEFITS
Kale is a superstar green, providing more viable calcium per calorie than milk and more iron than beef. Plus, unlike all animal-based foods, it’s a valuable resource of tummy-trimming fiber!
Hemp hearts are one of those foods that’s truly worthy of being called a “super food”.
They support optimal health and well-being and include a plethora of health benefits including weight loss, increased and sustained energy, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduced inflammation.
They can also help improve digestion. I sprinkle these over at least one meal daily.
