“Many of my recipes have been influenced by cultural experiences, twists on favorite childhood meals or newly discovered ingredients,” says Chef Chad Sarno. “The strawberry smoothie is among Kris Carr’s favorites. Few dishes have proved to be as timeless and widely beloved as the kale salad.”

Strawberry Fields Smoothie


Enjoy the nostalgic tastiness of strawberry milk sans moo juice or pow- dered junk. Strawberries are phytonutrient factories, supplying the body with a bounty of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients.


Yields 2 servings


3 cups cashew or nondairy milk of choice


2 cups fresh strawberries 1 Tbsp lemon zest 1 small orange, peeled 1 banana 1½ cups loosely packed spinach


Blend all ingredients until smooth in a high-speed blender. Crazy Sexy Kale Salad


Kale is the king of leafy veggies and rules this prevention-rocks salad. Serve it solo with a favorite cooked grain, or wrapped in nori or a gluten-free tortilla. Crown this kale creation by adding chopped fresh herbs or favorite diced vegetables. To be fancy, serve the salad wrapped in a cucumber slice.


Yields 2 to 3 servings


1 bunch kale, any variety, shredded by hand


1 cup diced bell peppers, red, yellow or orange ¼ cup chopped parsley 1½ avocados with pit removed, chopped 2 Tbsp flax oil 1½ tsp lemon juice Sea salt, to taste


Pinch of cayenne, to taste 1 cucumber

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Massage and mix using both hands to “wilt” the kale and cream the avocado (takes just a minute or two). Then serve.


For a fun touch, cut a thin lengthwise slice of cucumber and create a


circle to outline each serving of salad, stitching the ends of the cucumber slice together with a toothpick. Place the salad in the cucumber ring and then serve.
