Are you trying to go alkaline too?

If you are in the midst of the alkaline process, it helps a lot when you know which foods to consume to stay alkaline as long as possible.

A general rule of thumb is that you can eat these 9 foods without worrying about the acidic side effects they might have – although some of them are more alkaline than others.

Let’s make this clear: It is not necessary to eat only alkaline foods in order to get your body’s pH levels at an alkaline level.

It is no wonder that almonds are alkaline nutriment since they consistently rank on the list of healthiest foods to eat.

And did you know that most nuts and seeds are considered acidic unless they are sprouted?

However, there are some nuts that are neutral, or just slightly alkaline, such as almonds.

Although the great majority of people are NOT familiar with this grain, it does make a great addition to any alkaline-streamed diet regime.

Today the amaranth is valued worldwide. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization have fostered amaranth’s use since 1967 because wherever it is eaten there is no trace of malnutrition!

The amaranth has more protein compared with wheat and it is higher in the amino acid lysine than other grain sources of protein.

Distinguished botanists note that the amaranth belongs to a remarkable group of photosynthetic super performers called the C4 group, meaning it is super-efficient in converting soil, sunlight, and water into plant tissue.
