Potassium broth recipe

Season's eatings, everyone! I've been feeling a little puffy, sluggish and even a little achy the last few days. Time to make some potassium broth.

Potassium broth is often used during cleanses or at a time of rejuvenation because of all the amazing benefits it provides. It's hydrating, alkalizing, immune boosting and helps to flush your body of any retained water. Some spas in Europe provide this as a drink due to all its healing benefits. .

It is simple to make (that's how I like it) and essentially tastes like veggie broth. I'm going to sip on it the rest of the day while I do some writing. You can find lots of recipes with a good ol' Google search, but what you'll find as common ingredients is potato peels, parsley, carrots and celery. Some recipes say you can add any other veggies from there. I wanted to add kombu to mine but realized I was fresh out. Here's what I did,

Put 4 quarts of water in large stock pot. Turn heat to high and add potato peels from 2 potatoes (I'll live on the wild side and make mashed potatoes with the inners), 2 onions roughly chopped, 1 bunch of parsley roughly chopped, 4 carrots peeled and chopped, 3 stalks of celery roughly chopped. Bring all contents to boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 1 hour or more. Strain and store in refrigerator. I'm on my last 20 minutes of simmering and it is smelling good in here!
