Salad Combo with Hemp Hearts and Raddichio

Today's Lunch Salad Combo Contains, in order of most to least:


Butter lettuce


Purple Cabbage



1/2 avocado, diced

hemp hearts (about 2 tbsp)

slivered almonds (about 1/3 c)

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 squeeze lemon

2 leaves basil, cut into slivers


Remember that it's not the QUANTITY of salad  that determines the tallies for Food FX, it's the COMPARISON of acidic foods (Builders and Congestors) in the salad to alkaline foods in the salad.   As long as the ratio of Eliminators to Builders/Congestors are 2:1, you'll be in balance.  In this case, the majority of this meal is Eliminator based. 

If you get tired of salads, it's all about trying the different combinations.  Don't get stuck in a rut, and don't be afraid to shake up your "usual" to try new things.
