What is alkaline vegan?

The alkaline diet is a strict diet that consists of eating and intaking alkalizing fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds and herbs to detoxify the entire system and promote healthy living. Most people living in the United States consume the Standard American Diet (SAD) which acidifies the body and compromises the mucous membrane leading to many chronic diseases and ailments. Consuming an alkaline diet greatly helps in restoring your health by raising your pH level and maintaining hormonal balance through proper diet.

Notes

The food takes time to prep so try to make enough for leftovers.

Most recipes are from Ty’s Conscious Kitchen.

Always buy organic when possible and avoid any seedless and hybrid fruits or veggies.

No soy, corn, or processed wheat.

 

Tips

❖ If you need something sweet to drink, add agave and lime to sparkling Pellegrino to make Alkaline “Sprite”

❖ If you miss ice cream, Coconut Bliss is the one.

❖ Best pasta is Monograno Felicetti Kamut or Spelt (they have a variety, and you can order on Amazon)

❖ The closest to alkaline bread we found is Grindstone Bakery. They deliver!

  • 1 1/2 cup Hemp Milk

  • 1-1/2 cups spring water

    Directions

  • Add all your ingredients to your food processor or blender, excluding the spring water.

  • Adding only 1/2 cup of water, blend the ingredients together for 2 minutes.
