Being on an alkaline diet requires well balanced meals. I like to eat the foods I have always eaten. I just change a few ingredients and my meal turns more alkaline. This is not a diet where you have to eat foods that you have never heard of. I have often written about the importance of adding foods that are higher in alkaline to your meals. This was a dinner that I made for some friends. Filet of Sole, Japonica Rice and Zucchini Squash. Serve with a tossed green salad and a fruit cup for dessert and this becomes an alkaline meal.  Here is what I did.  
 Filet of Sole                                                           Serves 4 
  4 4oz. sole filets 
 2 Tbsp.  clarified butter 
 sea salt 
 Juice of 1 lemon 
 ¼ cup vegetable stock 
 1 tsp. capers 
 Heat the butter in a frying pan. Pat the fish dry, sprinkle with salt, place in the pan  and cook 3 minutes. Flip the fish over, add the lemon and capers. Add a little of the stock. This will create a little sauce. You might not need all the stock. It’s easy to put liquid in a dish, very hard to take it out. Cook for 3 more minutes. The fish should be done in about 6 minutes.  
 Japonica Rice  
 Found in Health Food Stores, this is delicious alternative to white rice and I promise you, it’s delicious and very alkaline. I like cooking rice in a rice cooker.  
 1 cup rice  
 1 small onion, sliced 
 2 tsp. clarified butter 
 ½ tsp sea salt 
 opt. 1 cup sliced mushrooms 
 Heat a skillet, add the butter and onion (mushrooms). Cook about 10 minutes until the onions are translucent but not browned.  
 Place the rice in the rice cooker add 2 cups water then the  onions and salt. Cook according to directions.  
 The Zucchini 
 My favorite way to cook zucchini is to place a steamer basket in a pot with a little water and gently steam the vegetable. They should be done in 6-8 minutes. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and serve.
