If you’re ever on the hunt for new lunch inspiration that’s alkaline and easy, today’s recipe is perfect for you. (You’ll also want to watch for my Thursday blog post, A Complete Month of Alkaline Lunch Ideas.)
This recipe is similar to a Vietnamese spring roll, but much easier and better for you. Simply roll these up for a quick lunch, share them when entertaining, or pack them up to take on the go. If you’re going to pack these, roll tightly and store in a container without a lot of excess air to keep the avocado from browning.
Feel free to add extra ingredients like more crunchy veggies and change them up each time. They’re super versatile, so they work well for the whole family.
In fact, this is a staple lunch for my son Brayden – quick, easy, and he LOVES it and your kids will too!
Give them a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.

Kelly Ripa, who wrote the Foreword, had this to say:
“What I like most about Dr. Daryl’s method is that it’s not a ‘diet’ but more of a lifestyle change. There’s no counting calories or limiting portion sizes, only a new awareness of ‘alkaline eating.’ Once you learn the difference between alkaline and acidic ingredients, you will know what to eat and will be able to benefit from keeping this balance in your bodies.
“Whether your goal is to lose weight, sleep deeper, feel more rested, think more clearly, or boost your energy, this plan will get you there…”
