Looking to try things different and give your blender a rest following your workout. This recovery salad I made hits the sport and addresses the main areas of recovery. This salad is focused around simplicity in whole real plant goodness. What’s nice is that it is under 7 ingredients. Definitely give this a try and let me know how it turns out!
Targeted areas of proper recovery that need to be addressed:
-Replenish electrolyte stores
-Lower joint and muscle inflammation
-Support immune function
-Promote protein synthesis
Here is the recipe:
-1 bunch organic kale; dinosaur or lacinato style kale
-1/2 cup cooked brown rice or sprouted brown rice for increased digestibility and higher protein content
-2 to 4 Tbsp of goji berries
-2 to 4 Tbsp hemp seeds
-1 tsp kelp granules
-2 Tbsp Vega Anti-oxidant Omega Oil
-1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1) Chop up the dinosaur or lacinato Kale into your desired shape and size
2) Get your goji berries and hemp seeds and toss into the kale salad
3) Prepare the oil and vinegar by combining both then giving it a good shake in a mason jar or shake bottle
4) Pour dressing on to the salad mixture then give it some generous salad tosses to get everything mixed up real well. Then serve in a beautiful bowl and enjoy! 🙂

***Always remember that no matter how hard you train that day. The most important thing you can focus on is how you well you are recovering. Your workouts are pointless if you are not recovering and giving your body adequate rest and nourishment. Listen to your body and be mindful of the sensations and feelings you are getting from your body. Sometimes the best thing you can do is rest and take it easy. During this rest and repair period. Growth and a stronger version of yourself is coming into being.
