Carrots + Kale Salad


It was time I made a healthy recipe. I personally needed one after the food tour on Monday. Like I always say, you can't have butter without a little sweat. Oh, you never heard me say that? Well you're right, I've never said that until just now. 

I had carrots and ginger in my fridge from juicing, a huge bag of kale, a random thing of tahini and some local honey just waiting patiently to be made into something healthy and hearty. I also had a crunchy sesame bar in my school bag that I put into this recipe last minute. 

I love massages. I love getting my entire back, legs and arms massaged. I don't mind massaging other people, but I'd prefer to massage kale. For this recipe I massaged kale with grated ginger, orange zest and juice, honey, olive oil, tahini, and a bit of salt. To add some crunch, I added a crushed up crunchy sesame bar (you could just use toasted sesame seeds). For the carrots, I tossed them in olive oil, curry powder, cinnamon, salt and a little red pepper flakes.
