What are some examples of alkaline food? A good rule of thumb when looking for alkaline foods is to choose plant-based items like fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens are an especially good choice when it comes to creating an alkaline environment in your body.(1*)

Some alkaline foods include:

Root vegetables: Radishes (primarily black, red or white), as well as Beets, Carrots, Turnips, Horseradish and Rutabaga. 
Cruciferous vegetables such as Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Brussel Sprouts. Leafy greens such as Kale, and Spinach. Cucumber, Garlic, Lemon, Apples, and Millet.


Fresh fruit is considered to be slightly acidic.(2*) The exception to this rule is the banana (but only if it's allowed to ripen before harvesting). The longer it ripens before harvesting, the less acidic it will be. Most of the fruit you buy in supermarkets has been picked prematurely and ripens in warehouses, not on tree branches. The difference between a fruit that has not been allowed to ripen naturally and one that has cannot be overstated.

Fruit that reaches maturity on the tree or vine is much less acidic and much sweeter than fruit that is picked prematurely. Moreover, those who usually cannot tolerate acidic fruit from the market may be surprised to find that fruit allowed to mature before harvesting is well tolerated. 

Cooking will not make fruit more alkaline, and it is advised that when eating fresh fruit to be careful not to add any table sugar to it—table sugar is very acidic! Moreover, adding fresh fruit to any grain makes for a meal that is hard to digest which leads to fermentation and ultimately to acidification.

If you want a way to make your fruit less acidic, consider dicing it finely or shredding it and letting it sit. As the fruit sits exposed to air, the acids oxidize, and the fruit becomes more alkaline. Moreover, you can eat fruit with soft cheeses or sour cream to increase their alkalinity. Think of the dessert strawberries and cream—this combination reduces the acid content of both items consumed although remember dairy is acidic!

When the fruit is dried, much of its water content is lost which gives it a shriveled-up appearance. Despite the way it looks, dried fruit tastes a lot like fruit concentrate. The drying process makes the fruit much more alkaline than fresh fruit. One caveat about dried fruit stocked in supermarkets contains a plethora of preservatives. These should be avoided as they are not well tolerated by even those with hearty digestive systems. If you can obtain preservative-free dried fruit but are worried about its high fiber to water ratio, you can soak it in water to make it more easily digested.

There is another kind of fruit that many people in North America overlook, and that’s oleaginous fruit or fruit that is full of oil. An example of this sort of fruit is the olive. Black olives are naturally very alkaline. However, if they have been stored in a brine of any kind, they become acidic. Nuts are another oily food that is quite alkaline. Almonds are one of the most alkaline foods you can eat (3*), and nut butter is a fantastic addition to the alkaline diet. Nuts can also be used to make an alkaline milk substance. By grinding and straining almonds through cheesecloth, you can create almond “milk”.

Vegetables are considered very alkaline and are an invaluable part of a healthy and well-balanced diet. Cruciferous vegetables and those that are white in color are not as alkaline as colored or leafy green vegetables. The reason being is that cruciferous vegetables contain a small amount of sulfur which is an acid. That said, they are still more alkaline than acidic. When trying to think of a way to eat fresh, raw vegetables one common creation is a basic salad. When eating salads be sure to choose a dressing that is not high in acid (like vinaigrettes) as this will cancel out any benefit of eating the alkaline leafy greens.

When cooking vegetables, be aware that the cooking process destroys some of the vitamins in the food. The mineral content stays almost the same with some cooking methods such as braising, steaming and roasting. Boiling compromises the vital minerals out of vegetables and into the water they are boiled in. Thus it should be avoided unless the mineral-rich water is going to be consumed such as when making soup stock.

Another fantastic way to consume vegetables is to juice them. The vegetable juice that you buy at the store is often full of preservatives. Again, these chemicals should be avoided, and the best workaround for that is to juice your vegetables at home.

It is worth noting that tomatoes and eggplants are considered very acidic and should be avoided when trying to reach an alkaline blood pH.

Cereals like wheat, spelt, Kamut and rice are all considered acidic foods. Corn is a notable exception to this list. Of all the grains, millet is the most acidic. That said, it’s not all bad. Millet is often suggested for people who are trying to restore minerals to the body since it is full of silica. However, those who have issues breaking down acids may be doing their bodies a disservice by eating this highly acidic food.

Bread: White is more acidic than darker varieties because it’s been stripped of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. For this reason, when white bread is digested it creates by-products similar to table sugar which creates a lot of acid within the body. If you’re looking for a way to make bread more alkaline opt for products that have been cooked longer like crackers or crustier bread.

Pasta is acidifying by the white flour used to make it. Pasta dishes are often made extra acidic by adding a tomato-based sauce to them. For a more alkaline meal, consider eating it with a white sauce, some grated cheese or with nothing on it at all.

Pies and tarts are quite acidic as they contain flour, sugar, and fruit. The fruit is often unripened, adding to the acid content. Try to compensate for its acidity by eating it with fresh cream and nuts.

Dairy is a bit of a tricky food group. Fresh dairy is considered an alkaline food, but it becomes quite acidic once it is pasteurized. Most cheese is also regarded as a acidic food.  With cheeses becoming more acidic the longer they’re aged. The exception to this is cottage cheese that is well rinsed and drained. A good rule of thumb when selecting cottage cheese is the larger the curd and the higher the whey content, the more acid it contains.

Yogurt that is sugar-free is considered to be alkaline but becomes acidic once sugar is added. Further, fresh butter is alkaline but becomes acidic once heated.

Eggs are considered to be a mildly acidic food, but the yolk of an egg is alkaline.

Meat is quite acidic, but some kinds are worse than others. Red meat is much more acidic than white and also contains more fat and toxins. Processed deli meat is much more acidic than unprocessed meat. Regarding acidification, fish is almost on par with red meat. Shellfish, however, are much more acidifying to the body than meat. The exception to this list is oysters which also boast an impressively high mineral content.

Legumes are quite acidifying to the body as they contain large amounts of purine. If you must eat them, soymilk and tofu are more alkaline forms of legumes by how they are processed.

Beverages - It should be no surprise that to achieve an alkaline body you should be consuming adequate amounts of alkaline water. Finding alkaline water, however, is often easier said than done. Tap water often has chlorine added to it which makes it acidic. Similarly, any carbonation added to water will increase its acidity. Most bottled water will list the pH on the label but buying bottled water can be expensive and may expose you to harmful chemicals that are leached from the plastic of the bottle into the water.

Coffee, tea and hot chocolate all of them are considered to be acidifying. The reason for this is their high amount of purine.(4*) Herbal teas are alkaline. Some exceptions to this are teas made with rose hips, fruit peel, birch leaves and horsetail.

Fruit juice made from very ripe and sweet fruit can be consumed in small quantities without an acidification effect on the body. There are, however, many juices which are very acidic such as orange and grapefruit juice.

Barring added preservatives, vegetable juice is alkaline. However, the one vegetable juice to watch out for is a tomato. Finally, anything you drink that contains a significant amount of sugar (like lemonade) will acidify the body.
