Vegan Athlete Diet

I actually don’t remember where I found the original starting recipe for this but I’ve changed it a bit since then anyway.

And now I’m sharing my version – enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 1 large or a 2-3 smaller servings)

  • 1 – 2 bunches raw kale
  • 1 tsp brown miso paste
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp hemp oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes or sliced mushrooms


  1. Rinse raw kale leaves well and shred by hand into bite-sized chunks or chop using a knive
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the miso paste, red wine vinegar, hemp oil and garlic powder
  3. Squeeze out excess water from kale pieces using a paper towel or a salad spinner
  4. Add the kale pieces to the large bowl and mix thoroughly by hand. As you work the miso/vinegar mixture into the leaves, it starts to soften and break them down in a bit
  5. Rinse your cherry tomatoes or sliced mushrooms in a colander
  6. Add to the prepared kale salad
  7. Sprinkle with hemp seeds and serve!
