My Lacto-Vegetarian Alkaline Diet. Simple Approach to Healthy Meatless Eating.

I am adding this paragraph because it actually is the BASIS of my diet.
Be true to your BLOOD. Human blood should be slightly on the alkaline side. If your diet makes your blood acid, then you will eventually become very ill with one or all of the chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer...

You can eat anything you like, including meat and dairy, as long as the end result is slightly alkaline blood. Make sure your diet is 80% alkaline foods and 20% acid foods. That is the balance that promotes health.

Do the research. Perhaps begin here. Look at all his charts and make your own diet according to foods you like. Make sure to eat lots of raw alkaline vegetables.

This is my lacto-vegetarian diet, that works for me. This is for people who need some help meal planning! I am very healthy eating this way, slim, physically strong, and look younger than my years! I am never ill; not even a cold. After more than 10 years of being lacto-vegetarian and keeping my blood alkaline, I feel no desire to eat any kind of fish, bird, or animal. I have also cut down greatly on flour products such as bread, cakes, pasta, and there is no sugar in my home, just honey.

Lunch can be taken and heated up at work. Homemade soup has vegetable water as its base. Never throw away any water from vegetables or potatoes. Change to ALMOND flour and sorghum flour for baking. Use raisins and a tbsp honey only. You get used to less sweetened baking, and then a regular doughnut or cookie will taste too sweet to you.

Typical Day:

Breakfast - 2 eggs, 1 toast, raw tomato and red peppers, coffee, water, 500 mg Vitamin C.

Lunch - 1/2 cup beans in tomato sauce with fried onion mixed in and and raw peppers if you like, 1 slice bread, a mug of homemade soup, and water

Afternoon snack: 1 Sliced banana with some pecans, walnuts, raisins, topped with 1/4 cup plain yogurt.

Supper - homemade veggie burger, 1/2 cup homemade oven roasted potato wedges sprinkled with Mrs. Dash, 1/2 cup peas and corn, turnip, lettuce, raw tomatoes and red peppers, a few olives, a mug of homemade soup, and water

Evening snack: 1/2 apple with thin slices dipped in 1 tsp honey, YUM (this is like medicine and will prevent acid reflux if you have that problem. Have nothing else before bed. Water if thirsty.)

Veggie Burger Recipe - Easy to Make and Delicious!

Throw it all in the blender and grate/mix. Then ladle by 1/2 cup onto parchment paper (like big cookies they can touch) on a large cookie sheet and bake about 40 min at 350. Makes 12 burgers. Freeze and reheat 1 at a time as a sandwich or burger or meat replacement at a meal. 1.5 min in microwave or heat in fry pan. YUM

Toss it all in the blender:
4 eggs, 1 big yellow onion, 2 large carrots, some sweet potato or turnip, 1 stick celery, 1 can well rinsed kidney beans or mixed beans 19 oz, 1/ 2 cup each sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, 2 tsp basil, 1 tsp parsley, 1 tsp oregano, some rosemary, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp olive oil, Top with some dry oregano just before you put the cookie sheet in the oven. Enjoy. I like them with a tsp catchup.

Getting people to stop eating meat is part of the Agenda 21 plan

I heard about it when Rosa Koire was going over the UN's book in her speech.
It was on DP last weekend. I recommend everyone to listen. It will get you fired up and angry.
It's a long video, but good to listen to when you are doing chores around the house.


Sounds like a good veggie burger recipe

(no soy)

there's so much disagreement about diet--

I think each person needs to find out what works for him/her.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


Hamburgers and Pizza work for me!

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Humans don't need carbohydrates -- AT ALL!

Every carb, regardless of type (whether broccoli or ice cream), breaks down into sugar, which is glucose in the blood stream, which is generally bad for human health.

All the stuff you read about vitamins and minerals in plant foods is basically bullsh@t.

And the reason for that is they leave out the single most important variable: bioavailability.

While it is true that spinach, for example, has a higher iron content than beef, you would still need to eat 10 cups of spinach to absorb the same amount of iron into your body as if you ate just 3 ounces of beef.

ALL plant foods have VERY POOR bioavailability for humans. Another example is soy. Yes, soy is higher in protein than most other plant foods, BUT ... the human body absorbs less than 5% of that protein, while the human body absorbs over 90% of the protein in beef.

Beef is the single most important thing to eat for humans. It is how humans evolved, it is what built the huge human brain, and its nutrients are among the highest in terms of bioavailability for humans.

Try this experiment (if you are not taking any medications): just eat ONLY meat for 2 days. NOTHING else. What I mean by that is no plant foods, and no packaged foods. You can eat beef, fish, chicken (yes, the skin), etc.

ONLY drink water. Just meat and water (with beef and water only being ideal). Do it for just 2 days. Then come back and tell me you didn't notice an amazing increase in energy, feeling great, and looking great.

But for anyone on medications, don't do this if your medications have to do with things such as diabetes or blood pressure. The reason for this is that those medications MASK the symptoms rather than cure the problem.

For example, high blood pressure medication will artificially lower blood pressure. When carbs are removed from the diet COMPLETELY (not "low carb," but I'm talking here about "NO carb"), then your blood pressure will normalize. If you continue taking medication that artificially lowers blood pressure, then you will have low blood pressure, which is life threatening.

So, if you are on medications, make sure you know if you should end them if you try this. But for everyone else, try it for TWO DAYS and tell me you didn't notice a real, SIGNIFICANT, improvement.

Diet Warning

Warning: I did the meat and water diet and ended up in a health clinic.
The irony is that I was put on a diet to detox and it was a vegetarian diet.
I am doing much better recently though, would not recommend people jump into such a harsh change in diet. I'll be easing into a heavier veggie diet over time now, increasing raw foods is doing wonders for me.

Too much carbs is bad, but too much meat is also bad. Too much of anything seems to be the problem here.

- Slowly work into things that work for you! -

Lesson learned.

bump for alkalizing

I feel healthier eating meat than not eating meat, but I also try to alkalize. Maybe that has more to do with it than anything else? You and I claim very similar benefits, one eating meat and the other not, but both keeping an eye toward alkalinity.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I completely agree, fishy!

I try to do exactly that.

I beleive alkalinity is the key to health at any age.

Most people are walking around with acid blood and that is not the way the human blood should be.

Everyone is sick with colds, flu, and worse illnesses as they grow older, chronic illnesses related to a lifetime of eating food that makes the blood acid.

Give the universe some credit. It did not create sickly humans. We have done that, and we are doing it now to animals as well.

Eat your veggies kids! ;)

Minding your Mitochondria

Dr. Terry Wahls TEDx Talk - Minding your Mitochondria


This has been on the DP before, But I would felt the hunter-gatherer diet and how Dr. Wahls beat MS deserves a spot on this page.

Thanks for the great video! Inspiring.

I eat everything she says except the meat. But I also eat eggs and dairy, which she does not mention. I think the eggs provide a lot of what the meat provides. As long as your diet makes alkaline blood have the meat, but with lots of raw vegetables as she recommends. She created an alkaline environment in her body and maybe that healed her.

She recommends in the video:
Fish oil creatine Co-enzymeQ10 Vitamin B1 B9 B12 Iodine Omega 3 Fatty Acids Sulfur B6 Antioxidants

She Recommends Daily
( I eat all these vegetables too and that makes healthy alkaline blood)
3 cups green leaves Kale and or other dark green leafy
3 cups sulfur foods like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, rutabaga, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, leeks, shallots, mushrooms, asparagus
3 cups beets, carrots, peppers, or other bright colored vegetables and or berries, peaches, oranges
wild fish rich in omega 3 fatty acids, grass fed meat, organ meat
seaweed once a week
little or no flour products

She is right about the modern diet creating disease. Not only MS, but also diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

There is nothing unhealthy

... about eating meat. I wish people would stop spreading the idea that it's good for your health to reduce meat consumption.

If you're against it ethically, fine. Just note that industrial agriculture has been FAR more damaging to the planet's various ecosystems than production of livestock.

I agree there is nothing wrong with eating meat.

In the end you will stay healthy as long as whatever you eat keeps your blood slightly alkaline.

People with acid blood because of eating an acid diet end up with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, amputations, and cancer.

Cancer cannot live in an alkaline body. So eat meat but eat lots of raw vegetables too.


Please do not misinform people

... with pseudoscientific talk of blood pH. The human body is a very efficient regulator of blood pH because it must remain in a very small range. It's true that various foods can push it very slightly up and down the scale, but it does not become a problem unless you have a pre-existing condition.

For example, acid blood does not cause diabetes, but diabetes can cause dangerously acidic blood because it impairs the body's pH regulation (ketoacidosis). Diabetes is almost always caused by chronic high blood sugar due to over-consumption of sugars and starches. NOT acidic blood.

Diabetes is also a contributing factor for inflammation which can lead to heart disease and stroke. Uncontrolled high blood sugar caused by diabetes can also cause necrosis and require amputation. And cancer cells feed almost exclusively on glucose, which goes unregulated in the diabetic.

None of these things are caused by acidic blood. Acidic blood is a symptom of these diseases, usually precipitated by diabetes or pre-diabetes.

It is far more important to eat what gives your body the most complete range of nutrients it requires, and avoid foods that unnecessarily and unnaturally raise your blood sugar.

Some Drs may think that acid blood does cause disease.

Natural healing methods are designed to cure disease by restoring blood alkalinity.

" When our pH is habitually acidic, a condition known as Insulin Sensitivity or Syndrome X results. That means our body thinks it's in famine resulting in over production of insulin so that it can convert all calories into fat and storing more fat than usual. As more insulin are available to the body , the higher the probability that fat will be produced and stored, rather than used and burned as energy.

Acidosis is thought to be an important yet often underestimated precursor to Diabetes Mellitus."

If it were true

... that habitually acidic blood causes diabetes, and it is also true that meat causes your blood to become acidic, then it would follow that a diet of mostly meat would almost certainly cause diabetes.

In fact, the opposite is the case. A diet rich in meat and low in sugars and starches can, and does, reverse the effects of diabetes. Among traditional Inuit who eat 100% meat for close to nine months out of every year, there is zero incidence of diabetes.

As I said before, the acidic blood does not cause anything. It is merely a symptom of diseases caused by other means. It's like blaming lung cancer on bad breath instead of on smoking; if we just stayed away from smelly foods, brushed regularly and used mouthwash, we would protect ourselves from lung cancer. A nice theory, but wrong.

The diet that the "acidic blood" people recommend is actually a good one though, even though their reasoning is backwards. This is because foods that are truly healthy tend to promote a healthy blood pH as its own symptom.

My grandparents were farmers

and their main staple was wild game, but they also ate lots of roots, nuts, berries, and other natural foods.
And no diabetes in that generation.

I think the heavy use of grains in modern society, all the bread stuff, is the main cause of ill health, and the meat and dairy full of hormones and antibiotics.

I have not looked into it fully but wonder if the Inuit did not get most of their energy from the fat of animals. It is worth looking into; and fat has lots of vitamins stored in it.

Your Diet

is very similar to what I've been on for nearly 40 years.

Although in the past, with the use of eggs, we called it a lacto ovo vegetarian diet.

Having grown up eating virtually no meat but our family's cattle, hogs and chickens, when I got out on my own the store bought stuff was so inferior it was easy to give it up. I found out early on that a vegan diet was near impossible when eating at other folks homes and in restaurants. Southern cooking usually includes some dairy and eggs and who wants to give up all comfort foods.

For alkalizing purposes a little baking soda regularly may be helpful It's one of my personal techniques. A friend swears by food grade hydrogen peroxide for that purpose. There's plenty of info available on both with a simple search.

One of my staple alkalizing proteins has always been almonds, specifically raw almond butter, but in the 'war on food' insane laws pushed by big ag and big pharma were passed to destroy the nutrients through treatment with a toxic fumigant or with high-temperature heat. I call it a crime against humanity. There are many other examples but this one irks me the most.

They are specifically out to destroy B17- "laetrile."

The tree that grows the best B17 dose is illegal in this country.
I was a kid when my dad got as angry as I ever saw him. He was a pharmacist and was seeing people be cured of cancer, then he was ordered to stop selling them the cure.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Wow. Interesting and sad. B17

A person lacking wisdom these days will eat themselves to death on the modern diet.

I do not know if there is any one substance or pill that can kill cancer, but I think making the blood alkaline will reverse cancer if it has not taken gone too far. Blood becomes polluted with toxins and the body gives up on trying to clean out the garbage. Cells are dying in toxic blood and they mutate perhaps in order to survive.

Detox and alkalize the blood is the basis for most natural healing methods.

1937 Nobel Prize awarded to man who found the CURE for cancer


He explained why alkalizing works 85 years ago, and yet Pharma and Komen still have us "racing for the cure" by throwing money around rather than educating on what we already know cures it.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thanks for the website

Pharma does not want a cure for cancer. It is built into the economy.

Think how many jobs will be lost if cancer is defeated. Mind boggling isn't it? So it is up to the individual to choose carefully in the smorgasbord of life. Wisdom is the only cure.

I use almond flour for baking

and did not know about the treatment they are doing. If you can get them untreated a little powdered vitamin C powder in the container kills fungus and any parasite eggs. Now I will look for an organic untreated source of almond flour.

Baking soda is used in IVs to alkalize the blood when the blood is too acid during illness. Cancer patients have way above normal acid blood. Natural cancer treatments alkalize the body to kill the cancer cells; cancer needs an acid environment in order to grow. Baking soda is good stuff to add a pinch to water every day.

Sounds like you are happy on your diet and I really enjoy mine too.
Thanks for the comment.

Even CA organic almonds are treated

As far as I know imported almonds are exempted from the law and may be the only option if you don't want them sterilized. Isn't that a kick in the face?

Here's something you may find interesting.


Many people in the world are avoiding US grown food

for this very reason and because of Monsanto introducing too many GM foods in the US. Americans are no longer healthy people. You have to work at being healthy these days and too many are content to just eat whatever is advertised and sold, without question.

Almonds and almond flour are a big part of my diet. I bake with the flour and will now find a safe source. Thanks for the link.

Sounds like a wonderful,

healthy diet!

I don't eat meat or drink milk but I'm not all the way there yet.

The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
-Thomas Paine

Eat anything you like, and enjoy!

Just make sure you keep your blood alkaline. Study these charts. They can make you healthy.

vegetarians pretend they are not killing themselves

The current population of long term vegetarians is one very small province in southern India. Nowhere else on earth is the population completely vegetarian -- and never has been.

There is no evidence that complete vegetarianism and/or veganism is sustainable -- either for the body or for the planet. Vegans are especially notorious for eating tons of imported food from the southern hemisphere.

You can believe the China Study and Forks Over Knives if you want. But I can easily see that these "studies" are flawed and so 20th-21st century. It's a "fashion statement". These so-called "scientific" studies are just as flawed as any other study today. The earth does not operate in small bits and bites of information. It is an entire ecosystem.

If you want a real study, then spend some time in the forest and untended fields. Observe how Earth truly operates. Watch true sustainable activity. The bacteria and fungi in the soil break down dead matter and feed it to the plants, that feed the ruminants that feed the omnivores and carnivores which all die and feed the bacteria and fungi. That description is extreme in its over-simplification. There is so much more to it -- but that is the essence. How do you fit into that picture -- or are you "above" that? Do you think that you are not part of the Earth and keeping her healthy.

I agree that we can certainly eat less meat than we do at the present time. However, we humans have existed for millenia on an omnivore diet. The human population would have died out long ago if that were not the proper course to take.

If you eat vegetarian for humanitarian reasons you can do far more good by supporting your local farmer. They are intentionally being put out of business by those same agribusiness factory farms that mistreat animals. If you really want to get rid of those you negative practices try supporting the alternative -- small, local, sustainable, humanitarian farms. Any other course is wasting your body and putting your life and the life of Earth at risk.

I agree that supporting local farmers is very important to our society.
But it is of your opinion you can do "more good" by supporting local farmers... but no explanation of how it is "more" good? Nor why support behind only one (supporting local farms) and not the other (vegetarian diet).

Your 2 cents:
If a vegetarian diet helps health, earth, and humanity
If supporting the local farmers is good
Then do only one.

My 1/2-cent:
Do both.

I personally might not choose to eat a vegetarian diet, but I can at least be supportive to others who are doing so for the betterment of the rest of us and our planet.

Thanks for the comment. Agee with what you say below.

"If you eat vegetarian for humanitarian reasons you can do far more good by supporting your local farmer.

I might emphasis that you can eat anything you like including meat and dairy as long as you have a diet that keeps your blood alkaline. People need to do the research. Look at all his charts and make your own diet according to foods you like. Make sure to eat lots of raw alkaline vegetables. http://rense.com/1.mpicons/acidalka.htm
