My Lacto-Vegetarian Alkaline Diet. Simple Approach to Healthy Meatless Eating.Submitted by clynbrit on Sun, 02/03/2013 - 16:16
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.
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.
