Farro + Kale Salad
When the weather starts to turn cooler we always begin to crave cinnamon + crisp apples! Here is a delicious massaged kale salad with warm farro and crunchy nut + seed clusters that pack a lil sweet heat. Balance that with chewy bits of dried date, and a tangy honey orange vinaigrette that is super easy to whip up! The mixing of warm and cold ingredients is so hearty and comforting.
And we can't forget to mention this is packed with glow foods to help nourish your natural glow from the inside out!
