A is for Avocado + Alkaline Recipes to Try

Today marks week one of our alkaline foods series, where we will highlight an alkaline food from A-Z, sharing the benefits of the food along with suggested recipes to try!

A is for Avocado

Alkaline diet pioneers Dr. Robert and Shelly Young consider the avocado to be “nature’s butter” and a perfect food, believing that you should consume 2-3 avocados per day!

While some people shy away from avocados mistakenly believing them to be fattening, science has shown that they contain mostly healthy fats, provide fuel for the body, and are easy to digest. Avocados are also a fruit, not a vegetable, despite their non-sweet taste.

Avocados are rich in nutrients, with vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, H, K and folic acid. They also contain magnesium, copper, iron, calcium, potassium and many other trace elements which help buffer acids. They provide all 18 of the essential amino acids plus 7 fatty acids, including omega 3 and 6. At 70-80% water, avocados are hydrating, contain more protein than cow’s milk, and more potassium than bananas.

Consuming the vitamins, minerals and amino acids found in avocados have shown many health benefits including: lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, ability to inhibit the growth of tumors (particularly prostate tumors), defends against diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and cancer, slows the aging process, protects against eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration, aid in red blood cell regeneration and the prevention of nutritional anemia.

Alkaline Recipe: Avocado Tofu Breakfast Burrito

Our Avocado Tofu Breakfast Burrito is a great, easy and filling alternative to a traditional egg and cheese breakfast burrito and is not limited to just mornings! It is vegan (depending on the brand of tortilla you buy) and very flavorful, don’t let the tofu scare you. Kids love it too, and this recipe also doubles as good mock scrambled eggs if you omit the tortilla. Try it and let us know what you think!

Avocado Tofu Breakfast Burrito – Serves 2

Ingredients:
2 burrito-sized tortillas (sprouted or wheat are obviously the most nutritious but harder to find in the burrito size)
1 pkg firm tofu, thoroughly drained and crumbled
1/2 Diced avocado
1/4-1/2 jar of your favorite salsa or make your own (we used Pace)
1/8 Diced white onion
1/4 Diced green bell pepper
Handful fresh baby spinach leaves, torn
2 TBS. olive oil
Dried oregano, to taste
Onion powder, to taste
Sea salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Soak vegetables in 8.0-8.5 pH Chanson alkaline water. In large skillet, sautee onions and bell pepper in olive oil. Add tofu, salsa and spices and cook approximately 5-7 minutes. Add spinach and cook another minute. Spread in the middle of tortilla, top with avocado and wrap.
