A delicious way to harness the health benefits and alkaline properties of spinach, grapefruit, and avocado.

Step 1
On a bed of fresh baby spinach, add grapefruit sections and diced avocados.

Step 2
Make a dressing of blended grapefruit sections, ginger, garlic, honey, salt and olive oil. Serve with the remaining herbal meatballs.

Cooking: None

  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ½ grapefruit
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

    This is classified under TWT recipes, but it includes honey and grapefruit.

    • Anji:

      Grapefruit is actually on the fence. We don’t put it in the TWT because of that. But a lot of these recipes, which include relatively small amounts of “on the fence” or “disallowed” foods, are actually OK to eat during the TWT. This is because the glycemic load (the overall effect of sugar on the bloodstream) is very, very low. A salad with a bit of grapefruit or honey included in the dressing is- for all intents and purposes an entirely different meal than eating grapefruits as between-meal snacks or using honey to sweeten coffee.
