Almonds are considered to be moderately alkaline-forming nuts. They provide more calcium than any other nut, and the high calcium content combined with magnesium is what makes almonds alkaline-forming. Almonds are also an excellent source of protein, potassium, iron, zinc and vitamin E, and a good source of antioxidant flavonoids. Like other nuts, almonds help reduce LDL cholesterol levels and offer protection against heart disease.
- 2 large red bell peppers, seeds removed and cut into slices
- 3/4 cup soaked and drained almonds (should soak 8 hours ideally)
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 1 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
Add bell pepper and almonds to food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process until blended into a smooth mixture.
