“Yoga has transformed into me a person who feels great and is ready to partake in all of life’s possibilities.  I am excited to share what I’ve learned with you.”

2 bunches organic kale, stems removed (reserve for juicing)

Juice of 2 organic lemons

1 TB acai powder (keep reading cupcake, you can get it at any good health food store, Amazon, or Vitacost)

1/4 cup goji berries, chopped

Unsweetened flaked coconut

Salt to taste

Chopped almonds for garnishing

Shred kale, add lemon juice and massage in. Melt coconut oil, mix in acai powder and salt and mix into salad. Stir in goji berries, coconut and salt and topped with chopped almonds.  Let rest in fridge for 1 to 24 hours before serving.
