Alkalising Soup

Alkaline Diet

There has recently been so much interest in the PH impact from the food we consume that it generated just enough material for everyone on the Internet. Happy reading!

The only important thing we need to remember is that to achieve a good balanced system in our body we need to eat  good food. Of course, you could eat and drink bi-carb soda if you have to, but it is not going to work if you consume sugar and fatty fried starch. The real benefit of the alkaline diet is in eating healthy, there is nothing new really.

Consider this soup below as a medicine, as it contains all the most alkalising products :-).

Alkalising Soup

Ingredients:

4 cups filtered water

2 tsp Himalayan salt

1 small sweet potato (white) or 200 g/7oz

500g/17oz green cabbage

3 stalks celery or 100g/3.5oz

100g/3.5oz green beans

5 Brussel sprouts or 100g/3.5oz

1 small fennel 50g/1.7oz beet greens (greens only)

1 small broccoli or 150g/5oz

1 small leek or 150g/5oz

1 bunch asparagus or 100g/3.5oz

150g/5oz spinach

1 green capsicum

1 small bunch parsley or 20g/0.7oz

1 whole small garlic or 5 cloves or 25g/0.8oz

2 tbsp lemon juice or 25g/0.8oz

1/4 cup cold-pressed Flaxseed oil

Method:

1. Peel and dice the sweet potato and cook it in 1l of filtered water, season with Himalayan salt.
2. Add diced green cabbage and bring it to boil then simmer on the lowest flame. Add all the remaining ingredients in the order they are listed above: just dice, add and mix each new ingredient.
3. Once all in the pot, cover with the lid and towel and as soon as the soup starts to boil switch off the stove and leave the pot covered until it cools down. Process the soup using an electrical blender until smooth. Season to taste if necessary. The soup should be very thick and seasoned well. This way it is easier to store in the fridge or in the freezer. When served, add a little more water to get the consistency you prefer.
