Alkaline foods

If you want to have more energy and vitality you should incorporate more alkaline foods to your daily diet.

For good health your blood needs to be more alkaline than acid.

Eating more alkaline foods will help with digestion, improve skin tone, better memory and concentration and reduce cravings for sugar.

Alkaline-forming foods to add to your everyday meals:

root vegetables; they are rich in more minerals than other vegetables. Look for beetroot, carrots, turnips, parsnips

cruciferous  vegetables; they are rich sources of sulfur containing compounds choose from broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, arugula and watercress

leafy greens; these include spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens. Spinach is the best pick here known for its rich vitamine K and folate content

lemons; while containing citric acid lemons have a very high content of the strongly alkaline minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium,phosphorus, copper, manganese. These minerals have a very alkalising effect on the body.

INGREDIENTS

For the basil-lemon sauce

1/2 cup fruity extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
For the cauliflower

Make the sauce

Make the cauliflower
2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a chef’s pan or wok large enough to hold all the cauliflower over high heat. Add the onion and saute until the onion softens, about 2 minutes.
