One of my favorite balancing foods are beets. (I have yet to try the Mini Beet Protocol) at least once a week I will buy a bunch of organic beets at the local market...
I pressure cook them for 7 minutes (using one cup of water). I then drink this dark red water with a dash of vinegar. Do not discard!
Add a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the beets and also saute the greens with a little mustard powder and sweetened rice vinegar. This has a wonderful balancing effect, especially drinking the beet broth.
By the way...one of my most loved kitchen devices is my pressure cooker..it greatly speeds up cooking time and reduces energy costs.
