Superfood Blueberry and Peach Kale Salad

One of my favorite things about summer, is the fact that it yields some of my favorite fruits like berries and peaches. These fruits get my creative juices flowing and all I can think about is peach and blueberry cobblers, clafoutis and crumbles. Of course I add them to smoothies for breakfast or as an afternoon snack, but today they are going to go into this refreshing summer kale salad. I added sunflower seeds and hemp seeds into this recipe for some good plant bases fat and protein. You can also add chicken or salmon, as well, if you desire.
