Epic Meal for Sustained Energy and Happiness: Raw Kale Salad and Veggie-tastic Stir Fry

This is a fantastic duo for sustained energy. If you are working from home, take 20-30 minutes to cook this up, or try cooking it the night before and storing it in tupperware, and then grabbing it on your way out to work the next morning.

ImageRaw kale salad:

  • 1/4 juice of lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (doesn’t have to be exact)
  • 2 bundles of kale

Chop off stems, then chop kale finely. Combine in a small bowl with lemon, olive oil, and salt. Yuummm. How much goodness is in this 2 bunches of kale?! 206% of your recommended vitamin A, 684% vitamin K, 134% vitamin C, and 10% calcium. PLUS awesome minerals. Kale is the bomb.

  • Cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • stir-fry vegetables: green beans, snap peas, onion, red pepper, broccoli, mushrooms (HINT: if you struggle financially, buy frozen vegetables–you can find combination stir-fry vegetables in the frozen food section)
  • tofu or tempeh
  • garlic
  • canola or olive oil
  • teriyaki sauce

Prepare 2 pans. In one, heat tofu (cut into squares and drained) in oil for a couple minutes on medium heat (until golden brown) and then flip over. In the other pan, heat oil and garlic. Add vegetables. After a couple minutes, add a couple tablespoons of teriyaki sauce and other optional spices (ginger is good). Cook for a few more minutes. Serve over rice or quinoa.

Enjoy!
