Meatless Monday Sweet Potato, Kale & Avocado SaladBy: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff

To help prevent a diagnosis of breast cancer, women should re-evaluate their nutrition and exercise practices. Many women wonder what lifestyle changes they should be making. Breast Cancer Yoga believes they must make the change to a plant based diet and exercise daily.

To encourage a plant based diet Breast Cancer Authority Blog offers Meatless  Monday recipes. This delicious recipe comes originally comes from Bring-Joy.com .
and includes Kale, a cruciferous vegetable that is especially rich in cancer prevention phytochemicals .

Ingredients

    • 3 sweet potatoes
    • 10 c. chopped raw kale
    • 2 cucumbers, peeled
    • 1/2 bunch cilantro
    • 3-4 green onions
    • 1/2 avocado
for the dressing
  • 3/4 c. raw cashews
  • 1 c. water
  • 1/3 c. agave | or honey
  • 1 1/2 TBS. raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. Peel & CUT the sweet potatoes into bite size chunks (not too small, though).
  2. Steam them in a steam basket (on high) with the lid on for about 7 minutes. You want the potatoes to be cooked, but firm (definitely not mushy at all).
  3. Cut cucumbers into small cube-ish pieces (but again, not too small).
  4. Chop half your cilantro, and slice your green onions.
  5. Place washed & dried, chopped kale in large bowl.
  6. Add cucumbers, cilantro, onions & sweet potatoes.
  7. Top with sliced avocado.
  8. For dressing, combine all ingredients & blend on high until very smooth.
  9. Dress the salad (using all or only a portion of dressing), or leave it on the side for people to decide how much they want.

    This looks totally yummy! And easy to make! No excuses not to.

    If you put the dressing on the whole salad and do not eat it all on the first day, the dressing macerates the kale a bit making it a little softer and changing the nature of the salad. It’s really good that way, too!
