Health If you want to improve your health and vitality levels then one of the best things you can do is adopt an alkaline diet. I’ve got 3 great alkaline diet recipes for you πŸ™‚ You should aim for a 70:30 ratio of alkaline to acidic foods. In my and many other people’s experience, if you try and eat 100% alkaline foods, it is really too difficult to sustain and doesn’t allow for some foods that should be enjoyed sparingly, like fruit. It is better to go for 70:30 than ‘fall off the wagon’ .pletely, trying to achieve a 100% alkaline diet. Here are 3 easy, quick and tasty alkaline diet recipes: The first is a lovely tasty curry. Herbs and spices are very alkalizing so use these freely in all your food preparation and cooking. The second recipe is a slightly sweet avocado salad. Avocadoes are stunningly beautiful little things – full of Omega 3 essential oils and one for the only alkaline fruits, a real super food. The third recipe is a good old classic salad. You’d do well to include leafy dark green salad vegetables in your meals every day – there’s hardly any calories in a salad but plenty of nutrients and alkaline goodness – dark green leafy vegetables are amazingly alkalizing so knock yourself out πŸ™‚ Enjoy! 1 – Chickpea and Spinach Curry Number of Servings: 6 Preparation time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 1 cup coarsely chopped onion 1-1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger, chopped or grated 1 tsp olive oil or virgin coconut oil 1-1/2 tsp red curry powder 1 19 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes with liquid 1 10 oz bag spinach 1/2 cup water 1/4 tsp salt (optional) Directions: Put the ginger and onion in a food blender/mixer until it is minced.
