Alkaline Diet Recipe #98: Broccoli and Potato Curry

broccoli
Article by ross

This is a delicious and flavoursome broccoli and potato curry, which is healthy and alkaline at the same time.

I do love my curries in general, but this one has got very unique flavours and texture given by the coconut milk, red curry paste and the lentils.

Potatoes are very nutritious, however make sure to use fresh ones which have not been stored for ages, as they can develop fungal spots. They contain vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and iron just to name a few.

Broccoli is a highly alkalising vegetable and has a positive and strong impact on our body’s detoxification system. It is packed with nutrients and is rich in Vitamin C, K and A, folate, dietary fiber, manganese, potassium, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids just to name a few as the list could go on for miles.

I hope you enjoy this delicious, flavoursome and alkalising broccoli and potato curry!

    hate to enlighten you but potatos are starchy carbs that acidify.

    Hi Ian

    Hate to enlighten you too mate, but remember we’re only aiming for 80/20 alkaline/acid. Been transitioning people onto the alkaline diet for a long, long time now mate and I have found, overwhelmingly, that when people try to be 100% perfect they give up within a day. My whole approach at Energise is to be relaxed, take it step by step and to encourage people to aim for 80/20 – a day at a time.

    It has been incredibly successful.

    Buddy, you’ve known me for a long time now – it’s pretty patronising to think that you really believe that I don’t know that potatoes (especially stored) can be acid forming.

    But in the wider scheme of things, they are not a huge problem – there are certainly a LOT worse foods out there.

    Thanks for contributing, but I can’t help that feel you were being a little inflammatory with your comment.

    I’m a vegetarian, I eat potatoes and try to do a vegetarian / alkaline diet. I try to do the 80/20 because that is a more doable way to eat for me. Thanks again for the recipes.

    I just have to ask: I just learned about the benefits of an alkaline diet and have been doing some light research just to fill my curiosity. I thought though, that I just read potatoes are a good thing to eat if trying to change to an alkaline diet; just with the peel. And I’m most definately trying this recipe!
