Balance Combination Skin with this Chickpea Kale Salad.

I wanted to share one of my favourite recipes for improving combination skin from the inside – out. Because what you put in – and on – your body are equally important.

Did you know kale is on par with broccoli when it comes to antioxidant rich constituents? In fact, it has more than 45 different flavonoid antioxidants, as well as the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect your skin against free radical damage and inflammation.

Serves 2-3



8 cups baby kale (or combination kale and spinach)

240 grams cooked chickpeas

1 ripe avocado, diced

2 cups roasted pumpkin, sliced

2 teaspoons



2 tbsp lemon juice

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 tsp Celtic or Himalayan Sea Salt

Pinch cracked pepper

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or flaxseed oil



Rinse kale and tear leaves, discarding the stems. Massage kale with two teaspoons of salt until the leaves soften (about three minutes). In a medium- bowl, whisk lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and olive oil until creamy emulsion forms. Pour the dressing over the kale and massage to cover. Add chickpeas and avocado. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
