I promise I don’t eat only sugar.
I really do promise I don’t just eat like, cans of frosting or something. I feel like I only showcase baked things and not what I think of as “real food” or things I actually eat.
In fact, I do an 80/20 primal split. No joke – I love it. I’ve been doing this about a year or more, and I know, I don’t usually talk about my diet on here.
Feeling like I needed to get back to myself (hey, I was brushing my teeth to avoid eating those amazing cinnamon buns!) I made this little happy meal. Ha.
Mustard Tempeh and Detox Salad
I took pretty much both recipes from one I saw on Cate’s World Kitchen, minus the polenta she paired with it.
I made minor changes to the salad (from Oh She Glows’ blog) and the only changes I made to the tempeh was to replace the shallot with scallion (that was all I had on hand).
I had never thought to put salad ingredients into my food processor! I loved it. I can’t wait to make it again. I used things I had that were similar, and I ate this up in 3 servings. Yes, it’s a lot of salad.
- large head of broccoli
- 8 large kale leaves
- 2 cups shredded carrots
- 1/2 cup raisins
- lots of cilantro
- juice of 2 lemons
- salt and pepper to taste
I used my Kitchen Aid processor to first chop up the broccoli. After that, I removed it all and started again with the kale. I used bagged shredded carrots because I had some on hand. I just combined everything and squeezed the lemon over it. That was it! I could NOT stop eating it.
I am going to make another batch when we go shopping again. I’ve already eaten all the broccoli in the house. Whoops.
