Eat: Balance the Minerals Broth

Trace minerals are important in keeping our nerves functioning properly.

An excellent source of TM’s? Veggie broth.

During my year living in South Korea, a broth-based soup was served with every meal, including breakfast.

Let me tell you, I’ve never felt healthier than during that year.

Try making this easy broth on a Sunday evening to keep on hand so you can sip throughout the week.

Pour into a mug on the way to school or work, add the broth to a heartier soup for a meal, or sip as a warming tea in the evening.

To boiling water add:
Chard leaves and stems
Celery stalks
1 white sweet potato
1 red sweet potato
1/2 onion
3 clove garlic
A few carrots and their greens
1 Beet
1 turnip
Whatever other veggies you’ve got on hand!
Herbs from garden (I used rosemary)
Optional: Himalayan Pink Salt to taste
Optional: chicken or chicken bone for protein and/or flavor

Simmer for a few hours and voila! Mineral broth. Eat with veggies for extra fiber or without. Mmmmm.
