Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a classic nutrient-dense, low-carb, moderate protein and high good fat ketogenic meal. It is high in good fats from the olive oil, the avocado and the grass-fed cheese. Be sure to ONLY use grass-fed cheese as that contains a lot of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and CLA. All other cheeses promote inflammation as they are high in omega-6 fatty acids and low in omega-3’s and CLA.
The recipe has tons of phytonutrient anti-oxidants within all the various colors that are represented. Red onions have anthocyanins and quercetin which reduce oxidative stress throughout the body and in particular, protect the brain tissue.
Adding in the fresh squeezed lemon and the various herbs helps to improve digestion. The fresh lemon juice contains live enzymes and citric acid which improves the digestive process and allows us to digest the salad more effectively.
You can make this in minutes and it will fill you up and satisfy you for many hours. Enjoy!
