Our Instagram Live sessions are the perfect way to learn something new. If you couldn’t tune in or just want to revisit your favourites, here’s a recap of what you missed. Check our upcoming schedule here, and don’t forget to join us on Instagram for the latest.
Monday, April 6: Kale White Bean Salad with Tuna with Louisa Clements
|Spring, in a salad! With kale, crisp apple, white beans, notes of citrus, and a tasty tahini dressing, this is the perfect addition to your meal (or a meal on its own)
It’s also a pantry-friendly recipe that you can make with few ingredients.
PRO TIP: kale can be tough to chew. Be sure to massage with fresh lemon juice for up to 2 minutes so that it becomes tender and salad-ready.

PRO TIP: try keeping a journal of how this situation is making you feel. This is not the first, nor the last time that we will be dealing with uncertainty. It will be helpful to reference your feelings and lessons learned during this time.

Of course, this is to be used in conjunction with frequent hand washing, social distancing, and guidelines put in place by public health experts.
Kristina’s number one tip? Regulate your sleep schedule. Make sure you get 7-9 hours of shut-eye each night and make it consistent.
