Spring- a new kitchen- Time to alkalise! High Nutrient Dense Salad- A Recipe.

Bountiful Blossoms!

Spring in Adelaide. Spring reminds us to renew. Budding life everywhere ushering in newness! Well I got my new kitchen this Spring and it’s inspiring me again to revitalise my own most important “Home” my body.!
A strong return to the Alkaline lifestyle: that is all that creates a harmonious Alkaline System. So let’s together recommit to the steps we can take this spring and SPRING into NEW LIFE!

So to the New Kitchen, my sparkling inspiration to again create the same inner sparkle and lightness within!

Hello to my dream kitchen!

So time to remember again what creates an alkaline system. As noble prise winner in the 1930’s Dr Otto  Warburg proved “Disease thrives in an oxygen-deprived, acid enviroment. Healthy cells thrive in an alkaline environment, void of free radicals.”

So time to spring clean.  Every cell in our bodies will say thank you as they plump up with life energy and vitality.

It’s time to commit or recommit!

It’s time for a plant based high nutrient dense diet: plenty of fresh (just picked from the garden patch is best if you are lucky enough to have this available) SALADS packed full of dark leafy greens and a variety of other crisp, raw vegetables. Salads full of natures photo nutrients, vitamins and minerals, succulent and juicy!

It’s time to drink lot’s of Alkaline Ionised High anti oxygenated water! Add a spoonful of Organic dried barley grass to your water and drink it all day as an extra vibrant cleanse! Drink 3 litres each day and feel your body replenish and renew!

It’s time to recommit to good exercise. 30-40 minutes 6 days a week brisk walking is  ideal. Or some 3-4 yoga, pilates  or chi quong sessions per week.
Take a walk in nature every week (beach or tree studded park) enjoy the birds, breathe deeply and connect with mother Earth/Sea and all Her wonders.

Time to get some sound sleep.  The hours before midnight are the most alkalising and beneficial.  Regenerate by going to bed  for a few nights at 9.00 p.m. and see how you feel!
And time to clean out all those negative thoughts, criticisms, judgements and doubts.  Gratitude and wonder are the most beneficial  alkalising mental diet!

Water System

My Wonderful Kangen Water System!

I use for all my drinking and cooking this Water Ioniser from the Japanese Company Enagic. This system has been used for over 30 years in approximately 200 hospitals in Japan and is endorsed by many Medical Doctors and Associations in Japan for it’s regenerative qualities. Really it is a Medical devise, as not only does it produce Alkaline water (three different setting are available 8, 8.5 and 9.5) it also produces beauty water(for the skin) ; strong Alkaline (to clean fruits and vegetables) and strong acidic (a strong steriliser used to clean Medical instruments in those Japanese hospitals and to treat skin disorders). I use the strong acidic water in my home to sterilise all my bench tops, stove and knives etc. we use for preparation in my cooking classes. Also to wash hands and clean toilets.

So my water system does it all re water needs and I no longer buy cleaners etc.

Also the most important benefits of this water is that it is very high in anti-oxidents and because it is micro-clustered is quickly and readily absorbed into every cell etc in my body.

I have been using this System for 18 months and because I have noticed excellent benefits to my self and others,now, happily distribute and educate in how to use it.

Salad Greens

Organic salad leaves washed in strong alkaline water for longer freshness and ensuring there is no other pollution.

 Sumptuous high nutrient dense salad- A recipe

A variety of leafy greens. Cos lettuce, endive, rocket and other lettuces of your choice
Some radicchio (red Italian slightly bitter lettuce) leaves
1/2 fennel bulb finely chopped
1 red capsicum cut in thin strips
6 or more cherry tomatoes chopped into quarters
1-2 small cucumbers chopped
4 small radishes chopped into julienne strips
1 red onion finely chopped
1 stick of celery finely chopped (be sure to use the tops as well)
1 avocado cut into strips
Fresh herbs. I love to use a few basil leaves, a few more parsley leaves and a handful of chopped chives.

Optional: 1 or 2 handfuls of sprouts of your choice. I enjoy one of the following- snow pea, radish, fenugreek or sunflower sprouts.
1 apple cut into thin slices
5 snow peas julienned
1 tablespoon dulse flakes

Mix all the ingredients that you choose together.
Top with a liberal sprinkling of freshly squeezed lemon juice (this will keep the avocado and apple from turning brown). Then dress simply with a generous drizzle of organic, cold pressed olive oil (see my last post) and a light drizzle of Umeboshi vinegar.  This is the only alkalising vinegar.  It comes from the umeboshi plums and because it is salty no other salting of the salad is needed.

For the perfect meal add a portion of sprouted or cooked Humus (see one of my earlier posts for recipe) and feel every cell say thank you!
