Paleo Kale, Strawberry & Coconut Salad

This was a summery salad for a warm February night. It will now be a staple in our house because it is sooooooo good.

Here is what you'll need:

Kale, about 6ish cups
3/4 c Sliced Strawberries
1/4 c Sunflower Seeds
1/4 to 1/3 c Shredded Coconut

For the dressing:
Juice of 1 lime
2 TBSP Honey
About 1/2 teasp Salt & Pepper

Toss all the salad ingredients into a bowl, then wisk the dressing together in a separate bowl. When the dressing is mixed, then toss it with the other salad ingredients. I made this about 4 hours before I served it, which allowed the Kale to really absorb the dressing. That's what I love about Kale, it doesn't get all limp and slimy, so this is a great salad to save if you have leftovers... which you probably won't!

Paleo Creamy Cauliflower Soup


Here is what you'll need:

2lbs of Cauliflower florets (about 2 heads)
1 large sweet onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, chopped
2 TBSP Grass fed butter
3 c Chicken Broth
1/2 c Coconut Milk, full fat
Salt & Pepper, to taste

In a pan, add your butter, garlic and onions and sautee until soft. In a large pot, add the cauliflower and chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Once both the cauliflower and onions/garlic are softened, add all ingredients together in the large pot. With an immersion blender, blend all the ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency. Enjoy!
