Alkaline Diet Recipe: Collard Green Banh Mi




In my last post, I shared the secret link between what you eat and your hormonal balance or imbalance.


Well today, I’ve got a recipe that uses several of the foods that heal your hormones, including collard greens, avocado, and cilantro.


In fact, cilantro is one of the top detoxifying foods, helping to clear your body of both environmental toxins and excess hormones.


Plus, this recipe tastes so good, and it’s so easy to prepare, I think you’re going to find yourself making it regularly.


Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.



Serves 1





1 large collard green with thick part of stem removed

1/2 cucumber, cut into matchsticks

1 carrot, cut into matchsticks

1/2 Haas avocado, sliced

Small handful of sprouts – mung bean sprouts are most common and can be found in the produce section, or alfalfa, or grow your own.

2 sprigs of basil, chopped

3-4 sprigs of mint, chopped

Small handful of cilantro, chopped



1 tsp. ginger, minced (grating it with a zester is an easy way to do this)

1 garlic clove, minced

1 green onion, sliced

1/4 cup gluten-free Tamari (While I use gluten-free Tamari and Brags Liquid Aminos from time to time, I do so in moderation because of the soy. Coconut Aminos is a much better option. All depends on where your health is at, and what kind of flavor profile you are going for. Always think good – better – best, and nice to have options!)


Soy Sauce = NEVER!


Braggs or Gluten-Free Tamari = Occasionally


Coconut Aminos = GREAT!




Mix all ingredients for the dipping sauce and set aside.


Roll all the ingredients in the collard green like you would a burrito.


Serve with dipping sauce.
