Replenish your minerals naturally

Here is a list of minerals you need and the BEST natural sources:

Potassium- Fish, whole grains, apricots, avocados, bananas, brown rice, green leafy vegetables, spinach, parsley, plantains, cabbage, asparagus, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower
Magnesium- Green leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains, kelp, dulse, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, dandelion, oat straw, parsley, millet, alfalfa, horsetail, brown rice.
Calcium- Broccoli, green leafy vegetables, greens, dulse, kelp, oats, dandelion, asparagus, horsetail, straw, and plantains.

You notice that Kelp, Dulse, and green leafy vegetables contain several minerals. These show how important it is to add or increase these beneficial foods. You can get creative and sneak them in a daily diet through the day.

Vitamin E specially if you are active in exercise, at work, or strenuous activity. Your body loses these minerals throughout the day in sweat. Be sure to balance your activities with a follow up of these minerals in foods or shakes. It will keep you balanced, fit, and well.

Alkalizing Raw Soup

This is definitely a highly energizing soup and is a big favorite while on a cleanse or detox. Contains avocado which is high in EFAs and cucumber which is well known for its cleansing properties. The taste of this soup can be dramatically altered by the use of the herbs and spices mentioned or by alternating between lemon and lime.
1 avocado
1/2 red or green pepper
1 cucumber
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 clove of garlic
2  of green onion
Bragg Liquid Aminos to taste
100ml of light vegetable Bouillon (yeast free)
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Optional: coriander, parsley, cumin, dulse

Blend the avocado and stock to form a light paste, then add the other ingredients and blend.

Have a Health and Blessed Day
