Did you know that along with boosting immunity and clearing cholesterol, garlic actually REMOVES mercury from your system? The sulfur in garlic (also found in onions) binds to toxic mercury in your system and drags it out. Mercury is found in heavy concentrations in fish, especially salmon and tuna. It is also 50% of the makeup of old amalgam fillings. Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to man. Because of this, mercury amalgam filings are banned in several countries. Mercury causes memory loss, depression, and fatigue.
8-10 cups organic spinach leaves
1 medium apple, chopped
1.5 cups cooked chickpeas (rinse if they are from a can)
1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
1/2 an onion, chopped (lots, about 1.5 cups)
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar or 1 teaspoon agave nectar
1 tablespoon baco bits (soy bacon granules)
Assemble salad of spinach, apples, and chickpeas in a large bowl. Make salad dressing: Fry the onions in the oil in a small pan over medium high heat until they begin to caramelize (get very brown). Add garlic, let it fry for about 30 seconds and turn down heat to low-medium. Add sugar and vinegar and take pan off the stove as it sizzles. Stir well.
Pour salad dressing over salad, sprinkle with baco bits, and toss.
