Alkaline Diet Recipe: Black Bean and Avocado Lettuce Cups

Black Bean and Avocado Lettuce CupsIn the last post, I shared 9 awesome reasons to eat avocados every day.


Today I’m going to give you one more great reason. But you probably already know this one… Avocados are delicious!


It’s easy to #GetOffYourAcid when alkaline foods taste this good.


This is another avocado recipe you’re going to love. These lettuce cups are so good, you’ll swear you are eating out at a gourmet restaurant!


But unlike the food in most restaurants, they’re actually packed with nutrition.


You’ll get protein, fiber, a whole host of vitamins and minerals, and the cilantro will deliver a couple of nutrients that are key for cleansing your liver: linalool and glutathione.


Kids love these lettuce cups so they make a great family dinner or lunch, and you can prepare them in just a few minutes, which is good because you might need to make seconds!


Black Bean and Avocado Lettuce Cups




1 15-ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed (I use Eden Organics brand)
¼ cup minced red onion
Small handful of cilantro, chopped
8 butter lettuce leaves (these make really nice cups, romaine works as well)
1 avocado
1 lime
Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Red pepper flakes (optional)




Mash beans and red onion together in a bowl. Stir in chopped cilantro. Spoon into lettuce cups and top with diced avocado and a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and red pepper flakes.
