This is a super-salad. My meat-eating friends are forever challenging me to make a salad that fills me up, and doesn’t leave me hungry again in half an hour. They don’t believe it is possible. I promise you it is. And here is one of my creations.
I work out, I work hard and I need to be filled! I am a hungry young man! This salad doesn’t disappoint. It is tasty, filling, delicious and highly alkaline!
I use a mix of different leaves, but you can just use whatever you’ve got handy (apart from iceberg, which I thoroughly dislike!). So here it is:
The Fill-You-Up Alkaline Salad
2 Handfuls of baby spinach leaves
1 Handful of rocket leaves
1 Handful of cos lettuce
1 Handful of lamb’s lettuce (note: use whatever leaves you have)
1 serve of quinoa
½ can of chickpeas
1 handful of seeds & nuts (I used sesame, sunflower and pumpkin)
6 cherry tomatoes
½ green or red pepper
Olive oil (& coconut oil if you have it)
Himalayan/Sea salt & black pepper
Lightly fry off the tofu in coconut oil (coconut is the only safe oil to cook with) and make the quinoa to the packet’s instructions (usually 1 part quinoa, 2 parts water, boiled and then simmered until the water evaporates, about 10 minutes).
Now prepare the salad by washing everything thoroughly and chopping to how you like it. I prefer to rip my salad leaves – makes it more rustic. Mix everything together with the juice of half a lemon and a drizzle of olive, hemp, avocado or Udo’s Choice oil and serve.
Feel full and happy.
