The Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621 to celebrate their first successful harvest in the New World. Of course, the Pilgrims didn’t have a Tyent water ionizer on hand to enhance the flavor and health benefits of their meal, but that doesn’t mean a water ionizer can’t be an important part of your Thanksgiving meal preparation!
Here are three tasty tips from Tyent USA to make your Thanksgiving meal extra special in 2015:
- Tenderize Your Turkey with Turbo Alkaline Water
Ever wonder how restaurants get perfectly moist roasted poultry in their restaurants? One trick chefs use is they soak their birds in brine which is a solution of water and salt. Guess what? Brines happen to be alkaline. Instead of adding the extra sodium from brine, tenderize your turkey with turbo alkaline water by soaking it for 30 minutes before cooking.
First, sanitize your kitchen sink. Then, fill the sink with enough alkaline water to completely submerge the turkey. Finally, soak for 30 minutes. The alkaline water will go to work, penetrating the meat and adding extra moisture for a delicious, homemade turkey dinner.
- Boil Sweet Potatoes in Alkaline Level 2
Bright, orange colored sweet potatoes are packed with nutritional antioxidants, and they also make a delicious side dish for your Thanksgiving meal. Start by washing the potatoes in strong alkaline water to remove pesticides, dirt and oil-based preservatives. Next, boil the sweet potatoes as normal using alkaline water.
Alkaline water helps to preserve the color and vitamin content of sweet potatoes in a way that tap water cannot. The result is a potato dish with flavor and high nutritional content.
- Make a Healthy Cranberry Spritzer With Alkaline Water
Cranberries are rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins, which are heart healthy molecules that happen to be red. Mix this popular cranberry spritzer for a festive beverage your guests will love.
Tyent’s Cranberry Spritzer:
2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup Tyent Alkaline water
¼ cup lemon or lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
Alkaline water ice cubes
Mix ingredients, put ice in a glass, fill ¾ full with cranberry mix and top with seltzer water. Garnish with whole cranberries and a lemon/lime wedge.
Bonus Tip: Drinking a tangy cranberry spritzer just 30 minutes before your Thanksgiving meal can help prevent overeating. (But, you know, it’s Thanksgiving; eat as much as you want!)
The Pilgrims didn’t have water ionizers, but according to the History Channel, they also didn’t have turkey or potatoes. Give thanks for modern technology and put your water ionizer to use this November 26th.
