Sample Recipe: Alkaline Minestrone

This is our basic soup recipe, and the yield will last for a few days. It can be slipped into the diet for lunch or dinner. It is hearty, nutritious, healthy and delicious. By all means, vary the vegetables with the season and top up the soup with water you have used to cook other vegetables. This soup will last two or three days, and, if you eat nothing else, it is a big step forward to an alkaline way of life.
