Alkaline Tabbouleh

Alkaline Tabbouleh

There are many great online recipes for tabouleh made with quinoa.  Quinoa is your alkaline substitute for cous cous, and it is an excellent source for protein!  The power-food of the Inca, adding quinoa to your diet is something I highly recommend.

Miso Soup with Vegetables

Miso soup is a staple in Japan, and a major part of the macrobiotic diet, a diet that has tremendous healing abilities.

Not only is this easy enough for kids to make, it is also packed with nutrition!

You will need:

Miso soup packages (the number of servings should be on the package)

Vegetables such as:

carrots/celery/Bok choy/spinach/radish/bean sprouts/asparagus/bell pepper

1.  Bring water to a boil in a tea pot or sauce pan.  Pour hot water into bowls with miso soup mix.  Stir.

2.  Add a handful of chopped and diced vegatables, enjoy.

Note:  To make this a boxed lunch, bring your package of miso concentrate/powder with you, along with a baggie full of pre-chopped, lightly steamed (optional) vegetables.  As long as you can find hot water at lunchtime, you can make this soup easily.  And make sure you bring a bowl!
