When eating it is always important to be eating 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods. This helps keep your body alkaline! Also, most alkaline foods are natural vegetables and are generally very healthy for the body. Here’s a great recipe for an alkaline salad.
An acidic diet can cause emotional distress in the body and toxic overload, leading to myriad health problems. It should be of no surprise that the typical Western diet is high in acid and low in alkaline. To restore health, a proper diet should hover around 80 percent alkalinity and 20 percent acidity.
This alkaline salad is rich in alkaline foods that help promote the restoration of the body’s pH balance. Not to mention, it’s also easy to make and tastes delicious!
pH Balancing Alkaline Salad
- 5 stalks asparagus
- 1 cup chopped arugula
- 5 red radish
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 cup chopped snow pea sprouts
- 1/2 cup chopped alfalfa sprouts
- 1/4 cup chopped coriander
- 1 Tbsp. diced spring onion
- 1 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds
- 1 tsp. mustard powder
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. Celtic sea salt
- Add pepper to taste
In a large bowl combine the dressing ingredients and mix well.
With a vegetable peeler, peel the asparagus stalks just below the leaves and place into a small saucepan. Pour water into the sauce pan to just barely cover the asparagus and simmer on medium heat for about 3 minutes until just barely tender. Remove from heat and drain.
Slice the asparagus stalks into diagonal 1-inch pieces. Then chop the radish into thin slices, and chop and finely dice the snow pea sprouts, coriander and spring onion. The alfalfa sprouts can be pulled apart by hand, but just be sure it’s not one big clumpy piece.
Add the chopped ingredients into the bowl and toss well with the dressing.
Lastly, you have the option to either chop up the avocado and gently fold it into the salad, or serve the half in tact by placing it on top. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds and garnish with balsamic vinegar to taste.
