Alkaline drink

Dear readers,

just a quick one this morning as I am working vigorously on my second book, which will be again about "Ayurveda at Home", but this time with much more focus on nutrition and filled with wonderful recipes and a 9-day Detox Plan. I hope to launch it around March/April.

My first book is selling well, as I had already mentioned, you can buy it directly through me, but: it is in German only.

This morning when I had my smoothy after the Yoga Meltdown workout, my recent post about alkaline food came to my mind. Alkalizing our bodies is of utter importance as most of our today's food is far too acid. This leads to illness, aging and gives cancer cells a perfect environment to grow. We have to balance the acidity in our bodies and add more alkaline food to our daily nutrition. Please read my respective post

The following wonderful and easy recipe you could call a "Vegetable Tea" as you can prepare it and have it with you in a thermos and sip on throughout the day. In case you find it too bland, experiment with some honey or add a dash of salt and pepper. 

You need:
-4 cups filtered water
-1 celery stick
-1 small or 1/2 a large zucchini
-1 cup fresh parsley
-1 cup string beans
-1" piece of fresh ginger

Bring the water to a boil in a medium-sized pot. Meanwhile, chop all the vegetables and slice the ginger; add to the pot. You can also add a few slices of lemon, or squeeze in the juice of a lemon wedge at the end. Simmer on a low boil for half an hour. Store hot in a thermos and consume throughout the day. Makes about 4 cups. This is something you can easily prepare in the morning while having your shower and preparing for work. So, no excuses!
