Quick and easy raw recipes to help you eat more greens!


Recipes from Gabriela Lerner

Following on from my article on choosing the right ingredients to live a long and healthy life, here are my recipe suggestions to add more healthy vegetables to your diet.

Quick and easy raw recipes to help you eat more greens!

Multicolour Chopped Salad, serves 1

chopped salad recipe

1/4 of red cabbage, sliced thinly and discard tough bits
1 large hand full of kale, stems removed and chopped into strips
2 or 3 rosettes of broccoli, sliced thinly
1/2 red lipstick pepper, sliced thinly
1/2 avocado (optional)
1/4 tsp sea salt
Juice of half a lemon
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Toppings:
1 tbsp sprouted lentils
1 tbsp shelled hemp seeds

Mix all the thinly sliced vegetable in a bowl and sprinkle with the sea salt. Massage the vegetables with your hands. Particularly the kale should start to wilt a little. Add the lemon juice and olive oil. Mix well. Top with chopped avocado, sprouted lentils and shelled help seeds.

This salad takes only 5 minutes to make and is a really satisfying meal either for lunch or dinner.
Tip: Chew your salad well! Take your time and really chew it into a mash. This helps produce enzyme rich saliva which helps with digestion.

Beetroot and Carrot Salad, serves 2

beetroot and carrot salad

 

1 large beetroot
2 large carrots
2 handfulls of kale or spinach
1″ fresh ginger
1 tbsp cider vingear
1 tbsp Tamari (wheat free soy sauce)
1 tsp agave syrup or coconut sugar
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds

The fastest way to do this is in a food processor or Thermomix. Just chop the beetroot and carrots roughly. Remove the hard stems from the Kale and tear into smaller pieces. Slice the ginger roughly. Now put all ingridients except the sesame seeds into your food processor and chop gently until you have the consistency of grated veg. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. If you don’t have a food processor you can grate the vegetables and thinly slice the kale. This will take a little longer.

Eating 100% raw may not be for everybody, but even if you eat just one raw meal a day it can have a huge an impact on how you feel and it will boost your immune system. I am 55 years old as I write this and I have had a very varied work life. I am in a position where I can give my best and help people reach for better health and more energy.
