This is the perfect holiday kale salad to make especially during December. It's delicious and easy! Whether you're going to potlucks, or want to eat something a little festive this winter, this holiday kale salad fits the bill. The avocado in the dressing of this salad will soften up the kale and it imparts a creamy and delicious texture. When combined, the basil, tomatoes, avocado, and lemon make a creamy dressing that really compliments the kale and the rest of the salad ingredients.
A healthy vegan burrito is the perfect way to eat your vegetables! It's both fun and satisfying, too. Just take two big leaves of collard greens. This vegetable tastes a bit like spinach and romaine mixed together. What I love about collard greens is that they have a lot of surface area - this is perfect for wrapping veggies. In this recipe, the cherry tomatoes add just the right amount of sweetness to complement the other ingredients. Cutting the veggies finely makes it delicious and easy to wrap. I also added some cilantro and arugula - these are optional, but I like the flavors that each of these herbs bring to the vegan burrito. They add just the right kick!
I've received tons of requests asking about what kinds of groceries I buy throughout the week and how much I spend on them. This video will give you a brief overview of my vegan grocery haul. My favorite place to get groceries is the farmer's market. Everything tastes better, it's local, and it's generally cheaper. When I can't get things from the farmer's market, I buy my groceries from Costco because they offer great deals and many options. I buy different groceries depending on what I need, what I'm in the mood for, or what's available at the time. Frozen and dried fruit usually last 3-4 weeks and the fresh produce will last about 1 week and a half. The produce in this video amounts to $96.00 and throughout the week, I'll pick up an additional $30 dollars worth of food. This consists of frozen bananas, cauliflower, zucchini, herbs, and extra produce.
