“This salad is one of my favourites – not just because it contains so many of the ingredients that I love but also because it’s a walk in the park to make.
There’s loads of skin-loving magic in this creation: macadamia nuts with their healthy fats and minerals, plus blueberries for antioxidants, which help to prevent premature skin ageing and free radical damage. It’s brilliant on its own or as a side to your favourite source of protein – if you want to make it a mega skin- boosting meal, think about adding oily sh such as salmon or mackerel.”
1 bunch kale, stalks removed and leaves finely chopped
1 avocado, diced
1/2 cup (60g) dried blueberries
1/4 cup (35g) macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1 large carrot, grated
Zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
I prepare this in the same bowl that I serve it in, so grab a big, beautiful serving bowl. All I do is throw in the kale along with the diced avo, then add the blueberries, macadamias, carrot and lime zest. Give it a good old mix about, dress it with the lime juice and olive oil, season to taste and then tuck on in!
