ADeliciousRecipe Are you fed up with feeling sick from the foods you eat? Do you want a healthier, scientifically sound way to improve your diet? Dr. Bailey has discussed her recommendations for an alkaline diet in her blog on several occasions (here, here, and here), explaining how disease thrives on an acid diet and is hampered with an alkaline one. Next week, she'll be releasing a guide explaining the scientific evidence behind her alkaline Mediterranean diet, plus a 14-day menu that will give you recipes and tips to begin the journey of this life-changing way of eating. As Dr. Bailey says:

I became intrigued by the alkaline diet because it had a remarkable impact on some health issues I had in my own life

In the meantime, here's a sample of just one of the fantastic recipes in the 14-day menu. This delicious salad is all about flavor and texture; the balsamic vinegar a counterpoint to the sweet/sour of the grapefruit. Let us know what you think in the comments below! Avocado Citrus Balsamic Salad Serving size: 2 DSC_2031 Ingredients

  • ½ avocado
  • ½ pink grapefruit
  • ½ small onions, slivered
  • Handful of spinach
  • EVOO
  • Balsamic glaze
  • 3 ounces of soft goat cheese

  Directions Cut the avocado in half and scoop it out gently, as close to the skin as possible. Slice avocado the long way. Skin the grapefruit by cutting down the sides and cutting off the ends. Cut grapefruit in half, then slice. Lay down a bed of spinach onto the plate. Lay down alternating slices of avocado and grapefruit. Place slivered onions on the sides of the salad. Drizzle olive oil then glaze on salad. Sprinkle goat cheese on top and serve. Be sure to watch for Dr. Bailey's upcoming guide, which will include a wealth of information that promotes healthy skin and overall health. More delicious recipes will be included as well.
