Food Chart & Grocery List

TRANSITION TO ALKALINE LIVING

GROCERY LIST

The image “http://images.jupiterimages.com/common/detail/66/26/23042666.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. 

This list has been designed to help you transition to a more alkalarian lifestyle.  It is actually a very easy transition to make and we've found that it is not only healthier but actually less time consuming and cheaper to eat in this ideal manner.  But, the transition begins as one of substitution rather than elimination.  After going shopping with this list try some of our recipes or use your favorite dishes and recipes and substitute the acidic ingredients for more alkalizing substitutes.  You will be surprised to find that many of the substitutions actually taste better than the real thing. 

 If you have any type of health challenge or feel healthy and are looking for a greater level of vitality and energy then this is the shopping list for you.  Follow the 70-30 Rule.  At each meal eat at least 70% Alkaline forming and no more than 30% Acid forming foods.

All of the ingredients below can be found at your local health food store or at major grocery stores like Trader Joe's, Shaw's or Stop & Shop, Smiths, Kohlers, Good Earth, Whole Foods.  See bottom of page for list of what you'll find at what stores.
