Welcome to an article about alkaline diet recipes. First, a little background info on the alkaline diet and then we can get into a few recipes. The alkaline diet was discovered by Dr. Robert Young. Through his study of the blood he found that healthy blood was a direct reflection of a healthy or alkaline diet. So he basically determined foods to be either alkalizing or acid causing. He found that when a person eats foods that are primarily alkalizing the body as a whole runs at an optimum level.
The Alkaline Diet Recipes are recipes that are designed to alkalize the body and therefore would consist only of food that is alkalizing to the body.
It is recommended that you start of your day with alkaline diet recipes that can be blended into a drink. The idea behind this is that the liquid form of these nutrients is more easily assimilated by the body. One of the alkaline diet recipes is as follows:
Super Alkalizing Green Smoothie
1 Cup of Good Water: alkaline water if available(fresh spring water is typically alkaline)
1 cup of organic blueberries
2 large unripe bananas
2handfuls of spinach,kale, chard, or some dark green leafy vegetable
seaweed-arame, kelp, dulse
1 shot of wheat grass juice
Combine the ingredients in a blender with some ice cubes. Mix thoroughly, and enjoy. A delicious start to your list of alkaline diet recipes, this smoothie will supercharge your day.
The next of the alkaline diet recipes is my personal favorite. It is very simple to make and quite tasty.
Organic Spring Salad Mix
Add whatever greens you lie (kale, chard, spinach, collard)
Summer black radishes
Toss the salad how you like and use this dressing.
fresh squeezed lemon juice
table spoon sea salt
dried crushed basil
dried crushed oregano
The amounts for the above recipe can be adjusted to your liking. The dressing tastes best when it is allowed to sit a day before you use it. Both of these alkaline diet recipes are extremely alkalizing. They contain very alkalizing ingredients.
Another thing that I like to to with my salads and other recipes, is to add freshly sprouted sprouts to them. Sprouting is an easy and extremely cheap way to add super alkalizing and biogenic foods to your alkaline diet recipes. Mung beans, broccoli, and lentils are all very good choices for sprouting. To sprout all you do is soak seeds in a jar overnight. Then you rinse the seeds and drain them 2-3 times a day for around 7 days. Keep the sprouts in a dark room or covered with NO light until the last day. Then set them in a spot where they can get moderate sunlight for about six hours. You will notice that they start to turn green from as they begin to produce chlorophyll. Finally, add the sprouts to your favorite alkaline diet recipes and enjoy!
