Alkaline snack ideas
To hold you over until lunch time, you can eat again 2-3 hours later (eating frequently keeps your metabolism going and can help shed weight). You want to make sure you drink a liter of alkaline or spring water an hour before or after you eat. Nuts would be a great option because it fills you up. Your alkaline options include Brazil nuts, pine nuts, walnuts or However, you can also choose to eat more fruit, such as peaches, pears or plums (these will help to clean you out nicely). Another smoothie will also help to hold you over. This time, you can have a berry smoothie with date syrup or agave nectar as a sweetener.
Mid-day alkaline lunch
This will take a bit of planning, since you will need to make your own pita bread using spelt flour, but it isn’t hard at all! I like this option because it fills you up and doesn’t take a lot of grain, which is a good thing for your waistline. You can find YouTube videos on how to make it, but all you’re doing is mixing together:
- 2 cups Spelt Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Tbsp Olive Oil
- 3/4 cup hot water
You cut the dough into eight pieces, flatten them out into a circle and cook them in a clean frying pan (no oil) on medium heat. Watch for the bubbles (takes about 30 sec), then flip. They should have those familiar brown spots on both sides. You continue this until all 8 are done (takes about 10 minutes to cook them all). You can double the mix to make enough for the week. Just freeze them and let them thaw out at room temperature. Don’t put them in the oven or they will turn into crackers (I learned that the hard way!) You can fill your pita bread with romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, avocados (great for shedding belly fat) and lightly fried onions, portabella mushrooms and green and red peppers (use avocado oil). You should also top off your taco with olive or avocado oil. An hour after eating, drink another liter of alkaline or spring water and a hemp seaweed smoothie if you skipped it during snack time.
A hearty alkaline dinner
A couple of hours before you go to sleep, you need to eat dinner. Not a good idea to eat right before you go to sleep. This too is a simple meal, which consists of quinoa grain, which you cook like rice. Add in portabella mushrooms, onions, chickpeas and Himalayan pink sea salt. On the side, you want to have lots of leafy greens like turnips or kale (should be more than 50 percent of your plate), preferably steamed or lightly cooked with sea salt. After you finish cooking, you can pour your prefered oil on top (olive, coconut, tahini, hemp, avocado or walnut). Avoid cooking coconut and olive oils. An hour after, make sure to drink another liter of alkaline or spring water. Then as a late night snack, drink another hemp smoothie with your seaweed mix and flax meal.
These are all quick and easy meal ideas to get you started. There are many delicious alkaline meals that you can eat, depending on your cooking skill level, energy level, budget and enthusiasm to cook from scratch. You’ll find this way of eating to be very great for your energy, weight loss, health, skin, hair and every other part of your body. You go alkaline and you’ll reap all of the benefits, not just one!
