List of Alkaline & Acid Foods Are You Getting Enough Alkaline Foods in Your Diet? Your health depends on the balance of an alkaline environment, created by eating foods such as tomatoes, avocados and green vegetables...striking the optimum 80/20 balance and regulating your body's acid/alkaline chemistry through simple changes in diet can result in weight loss, increased stamina and strength,a stronger immune system and a greater sense of wellbeing.' Dr Robert O. Young, Pioneering scientist and author of The pH Miracle How did we become so out of balance? After years of societal changes, millions of pounds of marketing spend and technological advances we, as a race, are now facing more dietary based health challenges than ever before. It is no coincidence that the rapidly growing numbers of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes correlate almost exactly with the rise in consumption of acid forming foods such as sugars, saturated fats, and white breads. At the same time our consumption of fresh alkaline vegetables and essential fatty acids has decreased dramatically, making way for convenience and a generation hooked on sugary treats. Becoming Alkaline This is not as difficult or as technical as it sounds. When we talk about eating alkaline foods or starting an alkaline diet we are referring to consuming those foods and drink which have an alkaline effect on the body. This effect is based upon the mineral content of the food and therefore the ash residue that remains after our foods are consumed. Some foods leave an acid ash, whereas others leave an alkaline ash. Conveniently for us, it just so happens that the foods that contain alkaline minerals (and leave an alkaline ash) are all the foods we already know are good for us: low sugar foods, fresh alkaline vegetables etc. And the foods that contain minerals that leave an acid ash? You guessed it, sweets, alcohol, saturated fats, meats, dairy etc. Of course, everybody is different - but most of us should aim to eat 70-80% alkaline foods and a maximum of 20-30% acid forming foods. This does not have to be measured in calories, grams or anything technical, just look at your plate! Is 70% of the food on it alkalising? And for the other 30%? You can do with this what you like (how acid is up to you - dependent upon the results you want), but feel free to go for some oily fish, wholemeal pasta or wild rice for example.

Cashew Nuts Avocado chickpea, broccoli etc) Pistachio Nuts Olive Bragg Liquid Aminos (Soy Evening Primrose Sauce Alternative) Borage Hummus Coconut Oil Tahini Oil Blends (such as Udo's Choice) General Guidance: General Guidance: Stick to salads, fresh, alkaline vegetables and healthy nuts and oils. Steer clear of fatty meats, dairy, cheese, sweets, chocolates, alcohol and tobacco. Packaged foods are often full of hidden Try to consume plenty of raw foods and at least 2-3 litres of clean, offenders and microwave meals are full of sugars and salts. Over pure water daily (ideally enhanced with pH drops). cooking also removes all of the nutrition from a meal!
