The key to making the kale salad is to first massage in the Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt, and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Then add a little lemon juice, then mix in the remaining ingredients.
Eating raw is much easier with a high speed blender. A regular blender won’t make the staple recipes like almond milk, smooth cashew cream, and creamy soups. When I make a blended soup with a WalMart blender, there are big chunks of food that won’t blend. The cheap blenders cannot even blend soft veggies like red bell pepper and kale. The VitaMix and BlendTec blenders are the best, the Lequip blender is also great.
The best way to start is to pick a recipe or two, and practice it until it becomes easy and you can make it in just a couple minutes. For example, the nori rolls are awesome. When I first started it took me a half hour to prepare, and with a little practice it only takes a few minutes.

You should meet both Bob McCauley and Hiawatha, they are great people! When I first met Bob, he was busy running his store and dealing with customers, but he still made a point to talk with me for about 45 minutes in the middle of the day!
