Here's a delicious salad you can feel good about eating!
Following an alkaline diet has helped increase my energy levels so much, but as with any way of eating it is easy to get bored if you don't change up what you are eating. This can lead to cravings and binge eating, so I try to invent new ways of eating healthy foods. That said, when I find something I love, I tend to make it over and over again, and this salad is one of those recipes.
This salad packs a big nutritional punch, too. It includes:
Celery: Rich in Vitamin K
Broccoli: Rich in Vitamin C (when eaten raw)
Red Pepper: Rich in Antioxidants and very alkalising
Coriander: An amazing source of potassium, and helps rid your body of heavy metal toxicity
Parsley: Supports kidney function, and controls blood pressure
Turmeric: A potent anti-inflammatory
Lime juice: Super alkalising and helps bring all the flavours together
Pineapple: Great source of manganese and vitamin C
Olive oil: Healthy fat
Almonds: Protein and healthy fat
I haven't used quantities in this recipe because you can add as much or as little of each ingredient as you like. I tend to make lots so I have enough for 2 meals.
Chop up raw broccoli, celery, red pepper, coriander, pineapple, parsley and almonds. Combine in a bowl with olive oil, lime juice, fresh grated turmeric and Himalayan salt to taste. Leave to marinate for ten minutes or more and enjoy.
