mini challenge leading up to Christmas plus warm salad video

Hello friends,

We were talking the other day that we wanted to do a little challenge leading up to Christmas. And around the same time I got an email from Tone It Up.  Perfect timing! The Tone It Up girls are doing a members only challenge  so pretty excited about that! Make sure to check out their site for more information. We love being apart of their supportive community, so many great inspiring stories!

Ever since showing more of what we eat, we have received a lot of questions on what do we mean by a warm salad.  So we thought a video would be a good idea.

We made a video of how we make our Warm SALADS

how to make warm salads


We enjoy a variety of warm salads, but today Lori showed in the video making a basic one with kale, zucchini, asparagus, nutritional yeast, dulse flakes, hemp seeds, and sauerkraut. We normally cook up 2 eggs with this warm salad to make it more filling for our lunch, but sometimes we make these warm salads as a healthy snack during the day! And of course usually top off with coconut oil which we forgot to mention in the video.

There you have it friends a quick way of making what we call WARM SALADS. We hope you enjoyed seeing how we do it. Again it varies on what we have in our warm salads.

Does anyone else do something similar?

    Great recipe! I’d def add the eggs for some protein because I know myself I’d get hungry within an hour. :)

      Thank you! We do usually add in 2 eggs it our salads and sometimes winter squashes like butternut or acorn, so good!

  2. I love to make warm salads for dinner, and usually simpler is better. Lately I’ve been using a combination of kale and collard greens as the base, and I usually top with roasted kabocha squash, cauliflower, and broccoli, and a maple mustard dressing. So delicious! Your salad reminded me that I have a big bag of hemp seeds I need to start using more!

    Where do you find your kale pre-shredded and off the stalk like what you used in the video?

    • purelytwins says:

      From Trader Joe’s, it comes in a bag. If I go to a different store it is whole stalks of kale, which I would just rip off stalk and rip into pieces.

  4. We were on the same wave length today – I had a warm spinach salad for lunch! Great way to keep getting veggies in even though it’s cold outside.

    I’m so glad you shared this idea as I would never have thought to heat the salad leaves in a skillet. I’m definitely going to try romaine in a warm salad tomorrow :-)
