New Year, New You: Ways to Detox in 2014

CBS Social

Did you catch my recent segment on CBS news? If you want to start 2014 with less stress and a revitalized mind and spirit, check out this fun segment for some great ideas!  I shot this piece in Los Angeles but check your area for new and healthy happenings.

During the segment we made an awesome healthy and detoxifying salad together.  I’ve included the recipe below!

Your Healthiest You Massaged Kale Salad for CBS


About 4 generous cups washed, de-stemmed and chopped kale (one large bunch)
1 avocado
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of ½ to 1 lemon (depending how juicy your lemon is)
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cucumber, chopped or grated
1 carrot, grated
1 cup sprouts, sunflower or alfalfa
½ bunch mint, chopped or torn


Prep cucumber, carrot and mint and set aside. Sprinkle cayenne pepper, sea salt and pepper over kale in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice. Cube avocado flesh and add to kale mixture (I like to add ½ of the avocado to massage and then add the remaining half later to enjoy in pieces in the salad).

With clean hands, “massage” the kale so that all of the oil and avocado are coating it and it begins to wilt (the avocado should be completely mashed into the leaves). Wash hands and add additional veggies and mint and mix well. Taste and add any additional salt or pepper or lemon juice. Enjoy!
