Looking at your Plate


Did anyone happen to see the just published US guidelines for the new American Diet?

We used to have a pyramid, now we have a plate. The recommendation is ½ your plate is to be fruits and vegetables, ¼ a protein and ¼ a grain.

This is the Alkaline way to eat. 80 % Alkaline and 20% Acidic.  We need protein in our diets. Even on an Alkaline diet.

The grains we substitute for alkaline choices include: Spelt, Buckwheat, Quinoa, Japonica Rice and Wild Rice.

So don’t be afraid of eating this way. It will lead you to good health.
