A list of alkaline foods can be found in many of the books on the topic. I use the food lists in these books to help me determine what I will buy at the grocery store and what I will eat each day. These books can be found at any major book store. I have also listed them here.
These books also contain recipes which is great when you are trying to change up things.
With regards to the diet itself, it’s not the easiest diet in the world to switch over to. I highly recommend that you first become aware of what foods are acidic and what foods are alkaline and then slowly, over time, start to knock off different food groups, switching over to a more alkaline alternative.
This is not to say you can’t indulge every now and then and eat your favorite acidic foods, it’s just that you need to decrease how often you do this. If you are like me, you will probably find that most of the foods you love and crave are on the list of highly or moderately acidic foods. You need to become aware of this list, identify the highly and moderately acidic foods and decrease, or get off them altogether, over time. Sorry, you probably didn’t want to hear this, but it’s a fact.
If you can eat alkaline foods on a regular basis and ensure you are drinking enough water, preferably with a concentrated green powder like Terra Power Greens, and an alkaline drop like Terra pH Booster Drops, you will definitely feel better, potentially might lose some weight, think clearer, sleep better at night and will just be in better overall health.
