Drinking mineral-rich vegetable broth is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your health. It is one of the best methods of bringing the pH (a measurement of how acid or alkaline a body is) into balance. Mineral broth will greatly assist the body in bringing both excess acidity and alkalinity back to normal. It will give the body many different organic minerals, especially the big three - organic sodium, organic potassium and organic calcium. These are the most important minerals in today’s society, because the average person takes in too many acid-forming foods (meat, dairy, grains, sugar, alcohol, etc.), as well as acid-forming chemicals in our foods and air. Acids are also produced by worry, stress and other emotional problems. The precious alkalizing minerals which the body must have to handle all these acids are also known as electrolyte minerals, or electrolytes. This recipe is courtesy of Erika Reagor.

Ingredients:
3 quarts of filtered water
2 medium yellow onions, quartered
3 medium to large potatoes, quartered
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
2-3 large carrots, chopped (including the carrot tops)
1 bunch chopped greens of choice, such as collards, mustard, kale, or turnip and 1 bunch of parsley
1 large piece of kelp, kombu or nori seaweed

Directions:
1.     Place all ingredients in a soup pot.
2.     Bring to a light boil with the lid on.
3.     Simmer for 45 minutes.
4.     Remove from the heat and after it has cooled, strain into a large bowl or pot keeping only the broth. Use in soups or refrigerate and drink 2-3 cups/day.
