Slurp Up this Snack

IMG_0251.JPG

See this big jar? Well, I bought it for snacks. As we move into the season of fleece and carbs, I’d always have my big jar filled with salty, crunchy snacks – nuts and pretzel sticks and Chex mix and the occasional cheez ball. Crunch, crunch. Salty, good-for-nothing snacks. All winter long.

Only now that jar is filled with vegetable broth. Ha! Big difference, and I made it myself, based on Dr. Mark Hyman‘s recipe (with just one or two substitutions). Today I loaded my stockpot with kale, Swiss chard, radishes (and the greens), turnip, carrot, celery, onion, shiitake mushrooms, garlic, and ginger. Whew! Add plenty of filtered water, bring to a boil, and simmer for at least an hour. Then strain.

So here’s the plan. A cup of this crap elixir a couple of times a day instead of the usual fun stuff junk. I tried some already and it’s not bad. Not as bad as I expected. I could drink a cup of this broth two or three times a day.

Little changes, right?

  1. Good Luck, darling!! actually, you know what? it doesn’t sound too disgusting. The addition of ginger is what keeps it this side of not wanting to throw oneself off a cliff. I’d be tempted to chuck in a little turmeric too – it’s a wonder spice don’t ya know! I clicked on your link for Doctor Dolittle or whatever he’s called, and I noticed a rather stunning recipe for double choc peanut butter muffins….can’t you make those instead? xxxxxxx
