Chickpea & Avocado Salad
This recipe is devoured in minutes when served at my kitchen table. I enjoy this salad at breakfast, lunch , dinner or may sneak into it for a light snack. It is very refreshing and light for the summer season. The lime gives this a nice kick to accompany all the amazing flavors.

I love all the ingredients in this recipe. Each one supports our health in multiple ways. The chickpeas provide plant based protein and high fiber. Cucumber support your body’s fluid balance. Green Onion can help manage blood sugar levels. Parsley is great for detoxification. The phytochemicals in limes boost the immune system. Olive oil has cholesterol-lowering benefits. Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fat and are good for our nerves. Almonds are high in calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, folic acid and protein.
If you are able tolerate small portions of dairy, source an organic pasture raised goat cheese as opposed to cow’s cheese. The fat molecules in goats milk are much smaller and easier to digest. Goats milk is naturally homogenized without it undergoing a man-made process. It contains less lactose (milk sugar) than cows milk and therefore is easier to digest and is less allergenic due to the protein contents.
