Health Benefits of Kale
- High in protein, vitamins K, C, & A, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and fiber.
- Low calorie.
- Good for digestion. It’s all that fiber!
- Great for skin and bone health! The vitamin K and calcium work together.
- Anti-inflammatory. Just one cup of kale has 10% of the DV for omega-3s.
- Kale’s vitamin A can help lower the risk of some cancers, including lung and oral.
- The vitamin C in kale helps reduce bruising and strengthens the immune system.
- Free of cholesterol and saturated fats.
- It’s delicious!
I also used Manitoba Harvest Hemp Pro 50, 50% Protein Powder, 32-Ounce which is my favorite hemp powder. Manitoba Harvest leaves all the good omega-3s intact.
Just blend everything well until smooth and serve.
Kitchen Sink Smoothie
Everything but the kitchen sink is in this high protein smoothie!
- 2 big handfuls mixed greens kale, romaine, etc
- 3 bananas sliced and frozen
- 1 cup blueberries frozen
- 4 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1/2 small beet, peeled
- 3 oz tofu
- about 2 cups water or coconut milk for blending
Put all ingredients in a high-powered blender and puree until very smooth and creamy.

I love the idea of a meal plan. Thank you. Will it be emailed to subscribers or only available through the blog? xx
I found your blog today. Great. Enjoyed the first meal today hmmm deli. Keep up the good work pls.
It is amazing to think that so many people in different parts of the world would want exactly the same thing!! I got up this morning unable to stay in bed cause I was sick of my procrastination! I want to eat raw and yet I sabotage myself at every turn. I had decided that as of Jan first I would take it one step at a time. I would do a month of raw and then set another month etc. I actually love my food raw but seem to avoid it!! So I will look forward to your weekly meal planner as an aid to my journey. What makes it even better is that it will tie in with my aim to budget
Thank you so much.
i'm going to attempt at keeping my expenses on food under $10 a day. you've inspired me! your blog is so informational and useful. please keep posting, can't wait to read about your meal plan.

Hi ShannonMarie! I used Nutiva for a long time, but I think I like the Manitoba Harvest a lot better.
Can't wait for the meal plans. Your blog is by far one of the best and believe me I have looked everywhere. So for that, thank you! 🙂
Hi Natali! Thanks for saying 🙂 I've been really happy lately with how easy life is using a meal plan!
Love love love! Thanks so much for taking this on!
Sounds fantastic! Can't wait to see them.
I just wanted to say that I love your blog!
I found it this week when searching for raw meals for a week and found your website so incredibly helpful.
I've been raw before but moved and had to get rid of all of my fancy appliances – so now I'm starting from scratch again and a like that a lot of your meals do not need the use of a blender/food processor or dehydrator like most all raw meals tend to!
Also your daily dedication to the site is commendable!
Keep up the amazing work!
