Most people are surprised to find out that you can eat kale, raw. This raw kale salad is hearty, filling, and delicious. It's packed with super healthy foods that will give you enough protein, vitamins and minerals to make it to the end of the day focused and strong! I've been eating it for lunch a couple times a week, and it never disappoints. As always, make sure to use organic ingredients!
