What You'll Eat
The goal is to keep alkaline-forming choices front and center on your plate. As a general rule of thumb, 80 percent of what you eat should be alkalizing foods, with 20 percent acid-forming. That means loading up on vegetables, fruits (so long as they’re natural, not sweetened or dried), sprouted grains, almonds and lentils, and tofu and soy products. You might have buckwheat cereal with rice milk for breakfast; lentil soup with steamed veggies for lunch; and baked chicken with sweet potatoes for dinner. Acid-forming foods that are discouraged include: red and processed meats; fried and fatty foods; whole dairy products; yeasty breads and wheat products; and sugary snacks and drinks.
