Alkalize your body with these two great recipes. Alkalizing your body will increase your flexibility like you wouldn’t believe. You’ll get greater ease of movement and improve your flexibility faster by alkalizing your system, than practicing yoga, on it’s own with an acid forming diet.
Alkalize and start noticing the changes in your yoga practice.
I am loving this salad at the moment. The watercress is looking so lively and vibrant in the creeks where I live. Make sure you collect it from somewhere that is not getting sprayed with chemicals.. Watercress is sooo good for you, and very satisfying to collect it wild.
Beet And Watercress Salad
Sweet Miso Dressing
1 Tablespoon chickpea miso paste or sweet light miso paste
1 Tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons Basic Nut Milk
1/4 cup flax or olive oil
6 cups chopped, packed watercress
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 avocados, sliced
1 small beet, spiralized or julienned
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
Toss and serve
Enjoy and make the most of all that liquid sunlight coursing through your veins.
On that note, Here’s my favourite:
Green Juice Of The Moment:
2-3 stalks of organic celery
1/2 head brocolli
2 large siverbeet leaves
3-4 large kale leaves
2-3 carrots, or less if you want a clearer, nicer green colour
Put all through the juicer.. you need a single gear juicer to juice brocolli and kale. If you don’t have a single gear juicer, just leave out the broccolli
Enjoy!! and let me know if you notice any difference in your flexibility with a consistent alkalizing diet. David Wolfe swears by cacao beans for making a noticeable difference to his flexibility. I’m about to start my own experiment with that.. Meanwhile here’s my favourite “Cacao Energy Bomb” of a snack recipe
Cacao Energy Bombs
3/4 cup dry nuts, any kind
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup dried fruit, any kind
pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup shredded coconut,
2 Tablespoons each of Hemp seeds and Chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil, start with less and add just enough to make moist enough to hold together
Mix all together in a food processor until desired consistency.
