Salad includes: romaine lettuce, Tuscan kale, tomatoes, wild caught smoked salmon, olive oil, sea salt, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, lemon juice.

Start by tenderizing the kale - cut into bite-sized pieces and drizzle with olive oil + lemon juice. Using your hands, massage the oil/lemon into the kale until it starts to wilt.

[If you can’t get behind the idea of “massaging kale”, you can drizzle with oil/lemon and let it sit overnight]

Add freshly washed romaine lettuce to the bowl + tomatoes + pumpkin seeds + hemp seeds. Drizzle with additional oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to taste.

Hemp seeds are an excellent addition to meals bringing protein, plant-based fat, iron, thiamin, zinc, phosphorous, etc. To incorporate more hemp seeds into your diet, consider using as a topping for yogurt, oatmeal, pasta dishes, and blending into smoothies …
