Vegan Kale and Sweet Potato Salad

This is my new favorite way to eat kale.  I have always cooked it, but it is so much better raw.   I thought the kale would be more bitter, but it really has a great flavor when its raw.  My son just wants it raw now too (unless I am making kale chips).  He ate 3 huge servings of this salad.  It is so colorful and it is packed full of nutrients and the quinoa gives the salad a little more protein.

I have been trying to eat more raw foods lately in an attempt to detox after the holidays.  Some things, like kale, are great raw.  Other things, like sweet potatoes, not so much.  I have also greatly reduced my coffee consumption, which was really scary for a family for a few days, and given up refined sugar.   I am feeling much better already, so hopefully I can stay on track this time.
