My favorite thing about the alkaline diet is that while I’m eating the foods my body craves – foods that deliver abundant vitamins and minerals, as well as healthy fats and proteins – I also get to enjoy flavorful, delicious foods that I really love.
That’s the case with today’s recipe. This recipe comes from our 7-Day Alkaline Cleanse New Year New Healthy You recipe guide, and I think you’re going to LOVE it!
That’s the case with today’s recipe. If you like butternut squash soup, this takes it up a few notches and the results are crave-worthy.
Make sure you fix enough to have leftovers because this makes a perfect lunch for all the cold days ahead, in addition to being an excellent alkaline dinner.
