The Alkaline Diet is most simply an approach to health that focuses your diet towards more alkaline-forming foods than acid-forming foods.
The aim is to give your body all of the tools it needs to thrive: the nutrients and nourishment it needs to give you the health, energy and vitality of your dreams.
And nature has shown us that these foods, the most nourishing foods, are alkaline: vegetables, leaves, nuts, seeds, healthy oils & fats, oily fish…
Foods like spinach, avocado, cucumber, kale, almonds, salmon, watercress, carrots, celery, lemons, limes, coconut, beets, pumpkin, beans and so on – these are all alkaline forming foods.
They all contain high levels of vitamins, minerals, omega oils, phytonutrients, antioxidants, fibre and more – everything your body LOVES.
And nature has also shown us that the foods that rob the body of energy, cause stress to the digestive system, clog us, cause inflammation, suppress the immune system and age us are the acid-forming foods.
Foods like sugar, trans fats, refined foods, fast foods, junk foods, chips, soda, pizza, wheat…you can probably guess where I’m going here.
It makes perfect sense, and eating alkaline is to work perfectly with nature.
The foods that you probably already know are good for you are all alkaline-forming. Why?
Because they’re mineral-rich, vitamin-rich, antioxidant-rich, have a high water content (generally), and are natural.
And the foods you probably already know are not so good for you (those listed above, sugar, fast foods etc) are all acid-forming.
The alkaline diet is a very natural, straightforward concept to understand, but putting it into practice and making it easy to stick to can be more of a challenge.
Thankfully, I have devoted the past 12 years to learning, researching and teaching people how to get alkaline and STAY alkaline, and make it enjoyable, easy and delicious.
