Power Salad

Get into some Hemp man! Finally, the powers that be are letting us consume this INCREDIBLE product in Australia. It's been sold as animal grade forever but what did they think we were gonna do with it? That's right GET HIGH. Eeeeediots. (But like, it was OK for animals to eat it.....riiiiiight). Fortunately (or unfortunately) hemp in this form contains no THC, the stuff that makes you say things like ''wooooahhh man, is that cow jumping over the moooooon?"

Hemp Seed Oil is a amazing source of Omega 3s (very important for vegans) and Omega 6's (more readily available but when the ratio of 3's to 6s is wrong they can cause irritation in the body). Hemp Seeds themselves are a POWERHOUSE of protein. If you EVER worry about not getting enough on a plant based diet, then Hemp is the answer. Fantiddlyastic for athletes, this stuff helps keep your muscles pumping and it tastes great too.

This salad is a celebration that sensibility prevailed, and I hope all the people that utilise other parts of the Hemp plant for 'other' purposes try some too, because the awesome fatty acid profile is great for the brain!

Rawsome Power Salad! 

1 bunch of Cavalo Nero (Tuscan kale, dark, long)
1/4 Cabbage
1 Carrot
3 Spring Onions
1/2 cup Wakame seaweed
1/2 cup Hemp Seeds
1/2 cup Activated Almonds

Brunoise (rolled and cut into thin ribbons) the Kale.
Finely chop Cabbage.
Grate Carrot.
Chop Spring onions finely.
Pop all this in a large bowl.
Add Hemp seeds, seaweed, almonds.

1/2 cup Brazil Nuts
1/2 cup Macadamia Nuts
1 Avocado
2 cloves Garlic
1 tsp seasalt (more if you prefer)
about an inch of Ginger
Juice of 1 lime
around 1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup Hemp oil

Combine everything except the water and Hemp Oil in food processor.
Slowly add half the water while processing and then slowly add the oil.
Add more of the water if it seems too thick, process till smooth.
Make sure the salad is well mixed before you add the dressing as it is quite thick.
Use salads hands (wooden ones) or your own very clean hands to work the dressing into the salad, Kale is a little tough so it's good to massage the dressing in a little. Let it sit for 30 mins prior to serving.
Top with Microgreens.
