Alkaline Diet Recipe #84: Mixed Chick Pea Salad With Avocado and Lemon Dressing

chickpea

Chick pea salad with avocado dressingThis is a very colourful and crunchy salad, as it uses a myriad of alkalising ingredients like chick peas, spinach, tomatoes, asparagus, pepper and avocado!

Chick peas not only have an alkalising effect on the body, but are also a very good source of zinc, folate, vitamin B and A, iron and protein.

The dressing is very unusual as it is made out of avocados, which are high in the essential fatty acids and therefore very alkalising.

I hope you enjoy this ultra healthy salad as much as I do!

    Also, for the past two days I have been trying only alkaline foods …
    hence my question.

    With the various sites and charts several items come up as both acidic and as alkaline . . . i.e. Chick Peas/Garbonzo
    So, given the differences of opinion, is there a “correct” chart available?
    I am trying to combat a bad case of acid due to Benicar, amoxicyline and food intake. The doc gave a Rx but it did’nt help, so now I am trying on my own. I have tried Baking Soda, anacids, lemon/lime water, but the burn in my throat continues.
