Potatoes aren’t the health villains that several weight-loss diets suggest, but are a reliable ingredient in a detox diet. Potatoes contain vitamin B6 in high doses, which plays a part in maintaining cardiovascular system health, nervous system activity, and the regeneration of cells, being involved into more than 100 enzymatic reactions. Their skin is also a valuable source of fiber, contributing to the cleansing of the digestive system and the health of your colon. Pair these humble potatoes with the antioxidant power of kale to obtain a delicious and detoxifying snack.Print
2 small russet potatoes
1 cup fresh kale leaves
1 tsp sunflower seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 218°C/425°F.
Cut the potatoes into halves, scrub them, drizzle with coconut oil and rub to coat evenly, then bake for 35-40 minutes, until tender.
Meanwhile, roughly chop the kale leaves, add them into a medium bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, then use your hands to massage them until they become tender.
Add the lemon juice, seeds and freshly ground black pepper and toss to combine.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, fill them evenly with kale salad and serve.
