Falafel Salad

A few years ago, our family made a commitment to eat less meat. It started with one meal a week and quickly turned into most meals each week. As we explored new recipes that didn’t require meat, we noticed how much lighter we felt and our energy levels increased. Each person is different when it comes to protein source needs, however I highly encourage you to try a few meatless recipes and see how you feel after.



  • Buy your own pre-made or use our recipe


  • 4-5 cups of Kale chopped into bite size

  • Handful of baby tomatoes

  • 1/3 Cucumber cut into pieces

  • 1 Avocado cut into pieces

  • 4 Basil leaves chopped


  • 2-3 cloves of garlic

  • 1/4 cup tahini

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 4 TBS nutritional yeast

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/3 cup water (add until you reach desired consistency)


  • Add all the dressing ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse/mix until smooth.
