magic-mineral-broth-.jpg

A vegetable broth made from organically grown vegetables can be an excellent source of essential electrolytes. Ionic minerals are the key to maintaining good health. My broth is incredibly nutritious and a health-boosting food that is very easy to make. There is no – absolutely no – need to use the bones of our animal kingdom for the so-called miracle cure-all that humans hanker after. The three “magic” ingredients in my mineral broth come from plants: Kombu seaweed, dried shiitake mushrooms, and dried daikon

For over fifty years I have watched dietary fads come and go. Usually they are simply a way of selling books with wild claims. Sometimes they revolve around a new “superfood” or ingredient with supposed magical ingredients and sometimes they are simply permission to carry on with a specific bad habit. The Carnivore, Ketogenic, Paleo or Dukan diets are examples of the former.

Tahini is made from sesame seeds that are soaked in water and then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels. The crushed seeds are soaked in salt water, causing the bran to sink. The floating kernels are skimmed off the surface, toasted, and ground to produce an oily paste.

Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Tempeh is the only major traditional soy food that did not originate from Greater Chinese cuisine.

Miso is a fermented soybean paste used to flavour various dishes, but most widely used as a stock to season soups. Miso’s natural fermentation process creates a combination of enzymes that strengthen and nourish the intestinal tract. As a result, the blood that nourishes the balance of the body is much stronger.

The best Enzyme-rich foods are those that are sprouted (seeds and legumes). Both deliver not only ‘top notch’ nutrition but boost our enzyme levels naturally and support our health. Sprouting increases the enzyme content in these foods tremendously.

The foods that are most needed when the weather is warm are salads, fruits, green vegetables and lighter cooking.  A quick vegetable stir fry is one of our favourites with a huge fresh salad and one of my delicious dressings.

As a life long advocate of health and wellness; (working as a 12 year old after school) merchandising the grains, beans and pulses in our local food store, (I think counts!!!!). As a 60 year old woman, I feel the same excitement about my life as I did sorting through all the beans and grains in the store.
