An alkaline diet is a diet that emphasizes, to a varying degree, fresh fruit, vegetables, roots and tubers, nuts, and legumes.

This vegetable broth fits the guidelines of the alkaline diet.

  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 cups broccoli heads
  • 2 quarts distilled water
  • 3 cups celery stalk
  • 2 cups red-skinned organic potato peels, 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 small zucchini

Chop all the vegetables into very fine pieces.

Place them in the water and bring to a boil with the lid on.

Lower the heat and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

Strain and drink the broth.

This broth will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator. It may also be made in larger quantities and frozen.
