I just started eating this way, started with juicing went vegan and now eat raw alkaline and I love it…feel so much better…no more aches and pains…anyways, I find that I get really hungry with just juicing so I started doing smoothies, and I was wondering if it is ok to put bananas and dates into the smoothies because I find that the taste is really veggie and when I add these ingredients and even apples it tastes much better and I am not as hungry…I also eat a raw salad with apple cider vinegar and 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds or almonds per day…can you let me know what you think,

millerrupp April 12, 2013 at 10:21 am

Would love to pin this! There is an audience within Pinterest that could really appreciate your site!

julie April 12, 2013 at 11:18 am

Millerupp, thx for asking, please…pin away! I have started a pin board as well here
Please ensure the the correct link is attached to all images. Thx kindly for sharing:)

Karen, it’s a matter of balance. Consuming a smoothie for a meal that is mostly fruit isn’t really finding balance. Ideally each meal is 80% alkaline, 20% acidic. We strive for this at each meal but are not perfect of course. Our morning is always started with juiced veggies, then a smoothie with some fruit (and veg) is fine. But to indulge in sweet fruit every morning out of balance is asking the yeasties to move right on in. My suggestion is to slowly allow your taste buds to appreciate veggies but trimming back on the sweet or to use milder greens like spinach & cucumber. Dates are super sweet and so are bananas thus using less is best and slowly moving over to stevia for your sweetener is more ideal Choose alchohol free liquid stevia for no aftertaste and use moderately, 2-3 drops per smoothie. Use it to sweeten more and use 1/2 the fruit initially. I’m not against having some fruit but best to use it as a treat, or a small snack in the afternoon on it’s own. As for vinegar it is fermented and harbours yeast, fungus and mold so I don’t suggest it. Lemon is a perfect replacement and far superior for your alkaline well being no matter what the word is that’s out for apple cider vinegar. Thx for your questions:)

Margo July 13, 2013 at 9:01 am

Can you please tell me what is the PH of tomatoes and chickpea? I didn’t find it in your chart which I believe is the most reliable one. These products are quite popular in my country, so their presence in my diet would make it easier for me as I know many recipes using them :)
Thanks in advance for your quick reply.
Regards, Margo

admin August 24, 2013 at 3:11 pm

Margo, tomatoes are very alkalizing, eat them freely! And chickpeas are alkaline too but have less water content so have them with high water content veggies as a good combination.

Bindi September 17, 2013 at 12:36 am

Hi There, I am always for more tastier healthier vegetarian options – this is the best recipes I’ve seen. Keep up the great work. Bx

Hi there Yvonne and Julie, I Just stumbled across your beautiful website when searching for alkaline recipes, My eldest Daughter who is 5 has been having a few little cold sores here and there, and after much searching I have discover that the virus causing it, can not survive in an alkaline body, Would your recipes be suitable for my children, they are all under 5, she is taking a magnesium supplement now. Thanks Again.

Do you have any good veggie burger recipes?

admin September 24, 2013 at 11:28 am

Try the quinoa croquettes recipe. it has sweet potato and black beans. It would wirk nicely. Sorry I can’t furnish link at this time.

Julie September 27, 2013 at 8:17 am

Do you have any good chili recipes, and what about pizza? I realize I can’t use real cheese.

Julie October 2, 2013 at 11:20 am

What about green and herbal teas?

admin October 2, 2013 at 10:01 pm

Julie, herbal tea is great but read the label and avoid additives like natural flavours etc. Buy high quality teas to avoid this. As for green tea it has caffeine and it is a stimulant so leave it be. Many would disagree but this is what I have learned. You can get antioxidants from healthier foods! If you are to have green tea is would be in extreme moderation as an occasional drink.

admin October 2, 2013 at 10:12 pm

Julie, just a good simple vegan veggie chilli you can google as I don’t have one. For Pizza, I use a sprouted wheat tortilla and add pesto and veggies and bake:)

monica huber October 25, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Melissa November 3, 2013 at 3:25 pm

Thanks so much for your website! I have had lupus for many years and been finding it hard to get on board and sticking with an alkaline lifestyle especially when eating out. I shall start cooking recipes. Cheers

admin November 3, 2013 at 4:25 pm

Jennifer, yes indeed, kids and adults alike can live this lifestyle. If if is a big shift, go gradually so as not to flush too many toxins to quickly especially for your kids.
good luck.

marika January 30, 2014 at 3:28 am

Hi! Im confused youre using low alkakine foods for cooking???
Could you please explain a bit more to me because im still confused also a typical meal plan for a day example?

Julie February 27, 2014 at 12:08 am

Marika, you can cook with any foods but warming them just thru is most ideal or if you make a soup and they are cooked then have a salad with it to get some raw in too. Breakfast: Green Juice & chia porridge or perhaps a green smoothie or spelt pancakes for a treat. Lunch, soup and salad. Dinner steamed veggies or a steam fry with 20% other which can include legumes or a protein source either vegan or well sourced animal protein or fish. Sometimes I’ll have a asian rice bowl with steamed or steam fried veg over 30% brown rice:) Hope this helps. I need to add a menu page.

Raine Hynes April 7, 2014 at 11:13 am

I also find raw collard greens to be very sweet even though they get bitter with cooking. They make a great smoothie green. And also cut up in one’s salad….

Vicki de Tenon May 5, 2015 at 12:04 am

Hi I have been looking through your recipes and they all look amazing. Have you got a recipe book out or can you suggest any? I was diagnosed with breast cancer 18 months ago so would really love to change my eating habits. These types of recipes are exactly what I’m looking for. Alkaline / vegan. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon. Vicki

Julie May 10, 2015 at 7:24 am

Vicki, my book is due out in feb 2016. Until then try getting Ross Bridgeford’s Alkaline book. Amazon or his site All my best:)
