This is just a quick one (I think – we’ll see when I stop writing!) about a little tweak you can make that will have a huge impact on your enjoyment of alkalising.
When you are first starting with alkalising it can be difficult. You may find recipes hard to come by, you might struggle to know what to eat and end up eating the same things over and over again through fear of going wrong, you might feel like you’re missing out on certain flavours or you might just get damn bored.
This blog post will help: (shh don’t tell anyone but) it’s all about seasonings and dressings.
When I realised how much I could do with seasonings and dressings every meal changed and became a million times more fun and enjoyable.
Here are my top five seasonings tips:
- Herbamare: weird name, tasty product. Herbamare is made with 100% organic herbs and natural sea salt. It literally makes EVERYTHING tasty. You can just sprinkle onto veg, salads, into wraps, on literally any dinner and make it ten times more enjoyable.
- Bragg: this is liquid flavour. Literally. Great on salads, veggies, dressings, soups, rice, beans, Wok foods, tofu, fish, popcorn, casseroles and more. It is a brilliant substitute for soy sauce (most unfortunately contain heaps of sugar, salt and artificial preservatives – and as they are fermented they are really acidic) and fantastically is a sauce of all of the essential liquid aminos (sauce/source – geddit?)
- Olive Oil & Lemon: so, so simple. Make up a batch of this and use it on anything and everything. It is just divine on freshly steamed vegetables and is clearly a winner for salads. Add minced ginger for a bit of a kick.
- Healthy Salt: when you first start alkalising you think you have to cut out all salt. But then you realise (maybe when you read this) that natural salt, especially, Himalayan salt, Celtic Sea Salt and Dr Young’s pHlavour Salt are all fine to use and are actually good for you! Bring on the flavour.
- Spices: nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger make everything fun! These are brilliant for muesli and whenever you treat yourself to warm oats. Ginger in its fresh form is also amazing for adding to stir/steam frys, sauces, dressings and cooking with green crunchy veggies like bok choi and broccoli.
Seriously, start bringing the flavour back! Who needs boring food!
