1.  Almonds & Almond Milk

Almonds are one of the healthiest foods you can eat.  Remember to only eat a small handful a day and raw almonds are always best.

2.  Broccoli

Broccoli is naturally high in vitamin C, vitamin A and calcium. I recommend to eat Broccoli at least 3-4 times per week to take full advantage of it’s amazing health properties. Pair it with grilled Atlantic Salmon for a real skin treat!

3. Beetroot

Beetroot has been known to cleanse the blood and detoxify the body so it’s no surprise that it makes the top 5 alkaline food list. Beetroot is naturally high in vitamin C, vitamin K and folate. It’s best served in salad, as a side and in fresh juices.

4. Avocado

An all-time favourite fruit and rich in potassium, healthy fat, vitamin C, vitamin A and fibre! Incorporate in salads, raw treats, smoothies and more!

5. Carrots

Not only are Carrots great for eye health, but they are also fantastic for an alkaline diet. Carrots are high in vitamin A, vitamin C and calcium. Get your carrot fix by juicing with other vegetables or chopping into carrot sticks and teaming with hummus.
