Molly’s Alkaline Broth

Benefits of alkaline broth

Adopting an alkaline diet will help strengthen the immune system and ward off disease. A diet that contains alkaline broth and other alkaline foods can help treat and prevent lack of energy, acid reflux, nasal congestion, frequent colds and flu, headaches, anxiety and cysts. An alkaline diet may also help prevent kidney stones and osteoporosis. Also, because the body stores acid in fat cells, consuming a diet high in acid can result in the production of more fat. According to Better Body Wellness, many people have found that an alkaline diet helps them to shed excess fat.

Yield: 2.5 quarts. Ingredients4quarts spring water (Add vegetables you like!) Example Recipe
3 medium sweet potatoes, diced
4 carrots, cubed
2 medium onions, chopped
1 small beet, diced 
3 stalks celery, chopped

1 bunch parsley, finely chopped 
1 bunch kale or other green leafy vegetable

2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 teaspoons dried, flaked dulse (seaweed)
1 sheet nori or kombu

Pinch of sage
For a little spice add a hot pepper

InstructionsWash and scrub all vegetables. Do not peel if organic.
Bring water to a boil. Add vegetables, bring back to a boil, then turn heat down to simmer. Cover the pot.
Simmer the veggies for several hours. 
Remove ⅔ cup of vegetables, blend in blender, and mix with some broth to make a puree to eat with meals or mix to thicken other soups/full of fiber.
Strain the broth ~ it is alkaline and rich in minerals, especially potassium, which can be flushed out of the body when taking extra liquids. Sip broth between meals. Enjoy.

Bridgette Tuttle

In large crockpot or on the stove: 1 large can each of tomato sauce, paste, crushed tomatoes. 1/2 cup lemon juice (makes the meat tender and gives a little zing). I like to put in green beans, kidney beans, lentils, mushrooms, and any other veggies you like. LOTS of garlic (I have a bag of pre-peeled so it's about 12 or 15 pieces in my crockpot, maybe more... I just dump it in). Plenty of ground cumin, pepper, chili powder to taste. I use cilantro if I have it and a couple bay leaves. You could add onion, too. Sprinkle a little sea salt in, as well. Cook chicken in a little olive oil with plenty of pepper and garlic or cook hamburger minus the olive oil. Put it all together in the pot and simmer all day. If it's too tomato tasting or resembles spaghetti sauce in flavor, add more cumin and chili powder. I eat it with brown rice and it's very filling and delicious.

  • Lettuce Wraps

  • Molly Geil

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 head fresh iceberg lettuce (this type works best for this recipe)

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 thumb-size piece galangal (or ginger), grated

  • 1 red chili, minced, OR 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. chili flakes

  • 2 shallots, sliced finely

  • 1/2 cup firm tofu, cut into "matchsticks" OR 1/2 cup cooked chicken shredded, OR 1/2 cup cooked baby shrimp

  • 1 carrot, grated or cut into thin strips

  • 5-6 mushrooms, thinly sliced

  • 1 egg (omit if vegan)

  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage (red is very good, but any type will work)

  • 3 spring onions, sliced lengthwise into matchstick-like pieces

  • approx. 2 cups bean sprouts

  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice

  • 2 Tbsp. bragg’s liquid aminos

  • 1+1/2 Tbsp. fish sauce Or Coconut liquid aminos

  • 1 Tbsp. oyster sauce

  • 1/4 tsp. truvia


  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped if leaves are large

  • 1/3 cup fresh raw almonds, roughly chopped or ground

  • fresh bean sprouts

  • OTHER: 2 Tbsp. coconut oil for stir-frying

  • Preparation:

  • Drizzle oil into a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, galangal (or ginger), chili, and shallots. Stir-fry one minute, or until fragrant. Stir-frying tip: add a little water or vege broth if the wok/pan gets too dry instead of more oil.

  • Add tofu (OR shrimp/chicken/pork), carrot, shiitake mushrooms, cabbage, and spring onions. As you stir-fry, add the lime juice, bragg’s, fish sauce, oyster sauce and sprinkle over the truvia. Stir-fry about 1 minute.

  • Push ingredients to the side of the wok or pan, and crack in the egg. Stir-fry quickly to break the yolk. Mix in with the other ingredients.

  • Add the bean sprouts and stir-fry briefly to mix (avoid over-looking or it will go limp). Remove from heat.

  • Cut off the stem part of the iceburg lettuce so it's easier to separate the leaves. Now place the lettuce, sir-fried filling, and the toppings on your table in separate bowls/plates, allowing family or guests to make their own wraps.

  • To assemble, take a whole lettuce leaf and place 1-2 heaping tablespoons of filling in the center. Top with a sprinkling of fresh basil and almonds plus fresh bean sprouts if desired. Then wrap up and eat! (For those who like it extra spicy, fresh-cut chili can be added as another topping.) ENJOY!
