Signing Off,



It’s quite fun coming up with random recipes. Here’s one brought to you by my effort of trying to eat more raw spinach (because it’s alkaline producing!).

frying pan
one pot
small mixing bowl

eggs, 2
raw spinach, 1-2 cups
medium firm tofu, 5 slices
shiitake mushrooms, 10

dressing ingredients
parsley, 1/4 teaspoon
sage, 1/4 teaspoon
marjoram, 1/4 teaspoon
oregano, 1/4 teaspoon
dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon
lemon juice, 1 teaspoon
white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon
olive oil, 3 tablespoons

Boil water in pot. Place eggs in boiling water for 5 min.

Heat frying pan to low-medium.
Take medium firm tofu and cut 5 slices and fry until slightly brown.
Wash mushrooms and fry until soft.

Whisk all dressing ingredients in small bowl.

Prepare a bed of raw spinach on a plate, place hard boiled eggs, cooked tofu & mushrooms on top. Add desired dressing on top of all.

Optional: Add sliced avocado! Yummmmmm.

Enjoy the salad!


The boyfriend attempted to make our first all-alkaline meal recently. He decided to go with a warm salad with a base of broccoli and sweet potato.
We’re on our way to achieving a pH balanced body! See this chart for alkaline producing foods: acid-alkaline-food-chart.

It was such a tasty success I must post to the Recipes section too, so you readers can learn how to make it as well.
