Heart Alkaline Stew

Whilst I don’t agree with everything she says (she likes distilled water!) I do like much of the things Dr Virginia Golschmidt of Saveourbones has some great things, like this great – and simple – alkalizing recipe.


1. Hearty Stew

2 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium red onion, diced
  • ½ cup quinoa
  • ½ cup carrots, shredded
  • ½ cup green beans
  • 1½ cups vegetable broth
  • 5 tomatoes, cut up in small pieces
  • 1 cup lima beans, cooked
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt (adjust to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon parsley flakes

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat and sauté the onion until soft.
  2. Add the quinoa, carrots, 1 cup broth, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and parsley. Bring to a boil, then simmer until quinoa is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in beans and cook for about 5 more minutes. You can add more vegetable broth to reach desired consistency.

    She points to a  2015 study of alkaline potassium salts’ effect on bone resorption. (Worth a  read!)The study, published in the journal Osteoporosis International, also revealed that high intake of potassium salts significantly reduces the excretion of calcium and acid in urine.

    “This means that excess acid is neutralized and bone mineral is preserved,” said lead author Dr Helen Lambert from the University of Surrey.

    “Excess acid in the body, produced as a result of a typical Western diet high in animal and cereal protein, causes bones to weaken and fracture. Our study shows that these salts could prevent osteoporosis, as our results showed a decrease in bone resorption.”

    Although bone resorption and bone formation is a natural process, allowing bones to grow, heal and adapt, in osteoporosis, the balance is shifted so that more bone is broken down than is built up, leading to fragility and fractures.
