Get Naked In The Kitchen Cookbook

Do you want to transform your relationship with food? If yes, then it’s time to Get Naked In The Kitchen!


Getting naked in one’s kitchen is less about cooking sans clothing, and more about focusing on whole, natural foods that have not been dressed up in confusing labels, artificial ingredients or added preservatives. It’s all about eating healthy and doing so while discovering new ways to strip away from unnecessary foods that add to your waistline.


While testing out some of the recipes on Get Naked In The Kitchen, I discovered new inspirational and creative ways to use ingredients that make a meal both gratifying and delicious. Flipping through the pages of this enticing new cookbook I learned that ingredients like green onion, Greek yogurt and even apples can easily make their way into salads and full meals, while adding value to our bottom lines – our health.


The Edamame and Avocado Salad caught my eye because of its combination of green onion and kale, making way for a nutritious salad that is both filling and refreshing. The edamame used in this salad is a good source of vegetarian protein and fiber, while the avocado and kale bring in healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.


Edamame Salad Recipe

Edamame & Avocado Salad

To make this salad you will need:
  • 3 cups of organic shelled edamame
  • 1 avocado, pit and skin removed
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup of parsley, finely chopped (I used Cilantro)
  • 2 large stalks of kale, finely chopped with spine removed

For the dressing you will need:

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 tbsp sea salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lime

Boil frozen shelled edmamame for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and rinse with cold water. Place edmame into a medium size bowl, chop parsley (or cilantro), green onion, kale and avocado and add to edamame. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the dressing and mix well, add dressing to edmame bowl, mix and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.

 

The Crispy Chicken and Lettuce Wraps recipe had me longing for spring, which will hopefully soon arrive, as this is the picture perfect portrait of a healthy and refreshing chicken salad. To be honest, I’ve always been a fan of lettuce wraps but never quite made it a point to make my own at home. The cool thing about this salad is that it can be made into a snack or transformed into a whole meal as it’s one of those dishes that can be easily created from leftovers and eaten for lunch or dinner.
