Breakfast. Lunch, Dinner Salad!
Ruth Heidrich is a cancer survivor. Diagnosed in her late 40's with metastatic breast cancer, she ate her way to good health! Ruth has been running since she was a young girl. Now in her 70's she continues to race in marathons. When she was in her 60's she was voted one of the fittest women in America. This is her favorite 'Breakfast Salad', eaten daily after her morning run. When I read this I went, "Hum?" I love kale in my morning smoothie, but salad for breakfast? I was skeptical, but gave it a try and, walla, I found another way to enjoy breakfast. (I wonder what my grandkids would think if I served this at breakfast?)
In the bottom of a big bowl, tear some lettuce leaves, 2-3 stalks of kale, 1 stalk of celery, 10 sprigs of parsley or cilantro. Slice and add 1 large carrot, 1/2 mango, 1 banana, and a bunch of large globe grapes. (You can also add any fruit of your choosing. I like to add oranges and strawberries.) You can also add some chopped nuts and raisins.
Ruth then sprinkles 1 T of Vitamin B12 fortified nutritional yeast and 2 T black strap molasses over salad. Mix well and enjoy. (I've also added some ground flaxmeal to my salad.)
The variety of additions is endless. The secret is the nutritional yeast and molasses. Who would have thought???
