10 cups packed chopped kale leaves, thick stems removed
1 small clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red chopped Bell Peppers
4 cups cooked quinoa (about 1 cup uncooked)
1/3 cup raisins
2 tablespoon of sunflower seeds or hemp seeds
1/2 cup mint leaves, torn with your hands
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
Sea salt and ground black pepper


In a large bowl, whisk together the garlic, balsamic, olive oil. Add the kale and massage it with your hands for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it has become shiny and a little translucent and reduced in volume by one third to one half. Add the remaining ingredients, salt and pepper to taste, and mix thoroughly.

Kale is a detox food. It’s filled with fiber and sulfur which are great for detoxifying your body and keeping your liver healthy & Quinoa is a smart carb—a complex carbohydrate with a low glycemic index that won’t spike your blood sugar. Quinoa is also naturally gluten-free.
