This Simple Kale Tahini Salad makes the perfect dinner base or side dish for a quick and healthy weekday meal. Pair it with some protein or eat it on the side for a healthy dose of greens.
I love what I do. So much so that sometimes it’s hard to stop working.
Apparently other people love what I do too. This is a concept that still blows my mind and makes me wonder how in the hell I got so lucky.
Nevertheless, girlfriend’s still gotta pay her rent, so I do make money off the healthy maven.
Kidding, clearly the exorbitant number of ads gave that one away.
…sorry about that.
And then there’s the brands that haven’t quite comprehended the concept that the currency I work in is dollars.
Unfortunately, no my landlord doesn’t accept coupons for free pomegranate juice!
It’s actually laughable when brands who have multi-million dollar marketing campaigns explain that they’d love to work with me, and can k work for free? Well if that’s the case, I’m so looking forward to approaching my dentist and letting them know how much I’d love to have them work with me for free. What fun!
I know what you’re thinking, cheque, pay pal and kale salad? Yup. I speak the truth.
In particular, I’d do exceptional things for gusto 101’s kale salad.
Well today’s version is not a replica of their kale salad, because it’s impossible to replicate (or not include an entire bottle of oil) but my version is for when you’re in a hurry, on a budget (unless you’re rolling in pomegranate juice coupons!) or just need an extra dose of greens.
And now I not so subtly drop mic.
