#1 The Alkaline Soothing Gut-Healing Soup

Wouldn’t it be great to have more energy?

Not the buzzy, short-lived caffeine energy (and then crash) that so many of us try to survive on…

But, the kind of energy that gives you that positive feeling, the belief that you can take anything the world throws at you…

The kind of energy where you always feel like you can do your best…

And the kind of energy that leaves you excited and smiling and a joy to be around.

Would you love to have more of that?

Thought so… let’s get some!

#3 TWO Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Alkaline Teas!


These two delicious teas are quite different, but equally delicious.

They both contain turmeric and ginger – and these two spices are amazing.

As I’ve written about extensively (see my 10 Science-Backed Reasons to Eat More Turmeric here), turmeric is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation (more effective than NSAIDs – proven), and fight and prevent a whole host of conditions including several cancers, cardiovascular problems, immune system issues, thyroid issues and metal/cognitive issues – even Alzheimer’s.

Ginger isn’t too shabby either! It’s anti-bacterial, prevents and relieves digestive issues and also being a strong anti-inflammatory it’s great for inflammation-based conditions like arthritis, supports the body’s fight against ovarian and colorectal cancer and supports the immune system too.

Together they are a powerhouse!

#4 The Immune Booster Juice

Immune Booster Juice

This super-juice is sure to keep the nasty bugs at bay!

Made of tomatoes, celery and cucumber, this juice is filled with heaps of alkalinity, vitamins and nutrients to help prevent getting struck down during the rest of the winter season.

Tomatoes are excellent sources of lycopene and are widely known to be rich in antioxidants.  Cucumbers have lignans and phytonutrients to help ward off diseases while celery is just amazing!  It, along with the beetroot, has anti-inflammatory benefits and has loads of Vitamin C, flavonoids, and other antioxidants.

Alkaline Recipe: Quinoa Porridge

So here is my latest alkaline recipe to make breakfast yummy for you. I LOVE the chai flavours, so this is mouthwatering to me! Just thinking about it is getting me going!

#7 The Alkaline Reflux Relief Smoothie

alkaline anti-reflux smoothie

Acid reflux (or GERD) affects 60% of the adult population within any given year.

That’s huge.

And here’s the thing: you can absolutely treat both the symptoms AND the cause with dietary choices.

…and could you think of another symptom that is more directly linked to an acid-forming diet?!

Living alkaline, without question, prevents and reverses reflux.

#8 Anti-Inflammation Soup


I’ve been doing a LOT of research lately, some really big, really deep stuff (which I’ll be sharing soon) but the one super-nutrient that KEEPS coming up (it’s crazy) is turmeric.

As I recently posted, it is scientifically proven to fight fatigue, heart and cardiovascular conditions, various cancers, inflammation, immune system issues and more.

After my first round of research I made two vows:

1) to have turmeric in some form every single day
2) to teach you how to do the same

And what better way than to give you a delicious recipe?

And so, Wouldn’t you love to have the next generation of this morning ‘wake-up-water’?

#15 Snack: Kale Chips

kale chip recipe

I LOVE these chips!

I used to think that you could only make this kind of recipe with a dehydrator, so I’ve never included it on the blog.

The last thing I want to do is have you think you need more equipment to be able to live healthy and nourished.

So when I experimented with kale chips in my straightforward, regular oven…and they turned out great…well, I did a happy dance.

Kale is AMAZING.

#17 Tuscan Bean Soup

Alkaline Tuscan Bean Soup

This is a fantastically filling soup, with each serve to give you a whopping 13g of fibre – that is over HALF of your recommended daily amount. That’s right HALF of it! It is also low in saturated fat, high in protein and full of celery, garlic and tomatoes – which give you an alkaline kick. Cannelini beans are also high in manganese, potassium and magnesium – which are highly alkaline minerals.

    What about eat fish on the alkaline diet?

    Organic grains like Kamut, spel, farro, are they okay in the alkaline diet?

    • ross Reply

      You can have oily fish, ideally wild-caught not farmed.

      Organic or not – grains that contain gluten are terrible for your body. So the question is not organic or not organic, it’s do they contain gluten. And spelt, kamut etc do. You want to go for gluten-free grains like buckwheat, amaranth etc.

  2. Rob Feinberg Reply

    Is EZEKEIEL4:9 bread good or bad? It says sprouted 100% Whole Grain Bread and it’s organic. But it has yeast and wheat gluten.

    • ross Reply

      Look for sprouted breads that don’t have the yeast and gluten added back in – it’s the gluten we’re trying most to avoid.

  3. Laura Reply

    I tried clicking on several of your recipes and got a message saying Not Found.

    If you can’t find fresh turmeric, how much of the powdered version would you substitute?

    • Ross Bridgeford Reply

      It’s a bit rule ‘o thumb, but half a teaspoon should do it.
