Well, we have made it this far…

Can you believe it is October already? Better yet, can you believe we have made it this far into 2020? None of us could have been prepared for what has been thrown at us so far. None of us can be fully prepared for what the next few months may bring. But we can be prepared to deal with what comes our way. With keeping a mindful eye on our health, especially our immunity and mental well-being, we can be prepared for what’s next. The rest of the year can be better dealt with if we allow ourselves grace. If we keep moving our bodies. If we keep our minds sharp and if we keep giving ourselves and others more kindness.

Kickstart Kale Bowl ingredients
Drizzle on the dressing of your choice. Note: If using raw kale, it’s useful to break it down by massaging it. After tearing the leaves from the stalk, sprinkle them with salt and use your hands to rub and “massage” them for a minute or two. Alternatively, you can steam the leaves for just a minute to soften.

In a blender, combine the mango, hemp, lime juice or vinegar, shallots or green onion, mustard, salt, pepper, 1⁄4 cup of the water, and 1 tablespoon of the nectar or syrup. Puree until very smooth.
Kickstart Kale Bowl dressing
Taste, and add the remaining 2 to 3 tablespoons water to thin (if desired) and the remaining 1 tablespoon nectar or syrup, to taste.
If you’d like to pair this dressing with some spicy foods or add an extra punch of flavor, try adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro or basil while pureeing.
