I’ve talked a little bit before about how I was really getting into the idea of eating an alkaline diet and the alkaline ionized water and how these can improve your quality of life. Well, I’ve started to try to incorporate more alkaline rather than acid foods into my diet to see if it really can make a big difference in how I feel, what my level of health is, and certain health issues I’ve suffered with suchs as allergies and asthma and acne my whole life on and off. So far, I do think that it helps with all of that, but I admit I haven’t stuck to it all the time either. I haven’t yet purchased by alkaline ionized water machine yet as I’m still shopping around, so of course I’ll have more on that for you as well when I do buy it.
One of my favorite meals so far which I believe from what I’ve read thus far is one that involves brown rice and two alkaline veggies. The tomatoes aren’t the most alkaline veggie, since mostly the dark leafy greens and other green veggies are supposed to be the best for that, but they are ok and are not highly acid producing as long as they are not cooked and are eaten fresh, so I figured it was ok to incorporate them into this little recipe of mine.
Here it is. It’s brown basmati rice, cooked in vegetable stock with no preservatives or sugar in it and a variety of spice such as sage and cumin mixed in. I also added organic wild rice to the mix for a little more texture and that awesome extra nutty flavor that pure wild rice adds to your rice dish. I had read that brown basmati rice was ok, but regular brown rice wasn’t, and that wild rice was ok as well so I assume those are both all right to eat.
Once the rice is done cooking, I cut up about a fourth of an avocado (a very alkaline vegetable) into small pieces, and also about a fourth of a fresh tomato into small cubes and topped the rice with that as well as a little sea salt. Sea salt is preferred over regular table salt on the alkaline diet, and I prefer it’s flavor anyways, so that was just an added bonus. I am hooked on this recipe, it’s so flavorful and completely meat free, plus I don’t feel any discomfort even after eating a fairly large plate of it, and it gives me lots of energy. A great alkaline recipe!
As I mentioned earlier, I’m very excited to bring to you soon a review of whatever alkaline ionized water machine I end up with. So stay tuned folks!
