Nutrition


My system is naturally too acidic and has caused periodic problems since my late teens. I have done extensive research on eating nutritiously for me, and in particular focused on gluten free, raw, and predominantly alkaline foods. Below is a list of alkaline based foods for health.

Below is one my blog posts and links to others under the 'Nutrition' heading


Alkaline Foods for Bladder & pH Health



NOTE:  those *starred* are items I rarely eat because they tend to be higher in sugar.

Root Vegetables

*beets* - *carrots* -  turnips - rutabaga

Citrus

lemons - limes (lemons are the actually considered the best alkalizing for blood pH)

Garlic

Not only alkalizing, but good for cardiovascular and immune health.

Greens

There are many healthy greens, but there are only a few I like and eat daily. Spinach is my ABSOLUTE favorite and I eat 6 cups of fresh spinach leaves in my super-food green smoothie. I also LOVE broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower. Others are: kale, swiss chard, and turnip greens, brussel sprouts.
