Iâ€™ll throw my cards on the table here. I absolutely love vegetables. The growing, the cooking and the eating of vegetables are all fine things to do, and although Iâ€™m not vegetarian, the majority of our family meals tend to be meat free. So far, so smug. Feel free to slap me with a slice of grilled eggplant, I can take it.
Praise those Peas!
And hereâ€™s the best news â€“ many vegetables are alkaline, so itâ€™s great knowing that your diet is complimenting the alkaline water which you drink! To celebrate celeriac, praise our peas and high-five those haricot beans, World Vegetarian Day is on October 1st, just in time to prompt us into looking at why vegetable are so good for our bodies.
Hereâ€™s a handy list of commonplace veggies which are alkaline.
- Bell peppers
- Romaine Lettuce
There are many more, but since vegetables are all around good-guys, you canâ€™t really go wrong!
How can we get more vegetables into our diet? Like laughter, weekends, and alkaline water, sometimes you cannot get too much of a good thing.
Here are some ideas for boosting your veg intake;
- If youâ€™re making a ragu, chilli or curry type dish, then thereâ€™s no limit to the veggies than you can cram in! Ragu always benefits from a â€˜properâ€™ sofrito of alkaline-rich onions, celery, and carrots; and eggplant and potato are wonderful simmered in a curry-spiced sauce.
- Zap half a cucumber with a few mint leaves and a slice of ginger through a juicer and add to chilled apple juice with a dash of alkaline water for a real morning wake up call!
- Toss pumpkin cubes with olive oil, honey and thyme. Roast until tender before tossing with cooked pasta, and dressing with parmesan cheese, toasted pine nuts and a little lemon juice.
- Add butter beans and lentils instead of meat for protein-rich and alkaline boosting texture.
