Ratatouille is usually served as a side dish, but also may be served as a meal on its own. Because of its many fresh vegetables, Ratatouille makes a perfect dish for an Alkaline Diet.
Moreover, pumpkins are not only alkaline, but also very low in calories which make them an ideal vegetable for anybody who watches its weight. Moreover, pumpkins are rich in potassium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, iron as well as beta-carotene (antioxidant), which are really good at neutralizing free radicals.
