3 Easy & Healthy Dinner Ideas

How you can achieve an alkaline diet.

Combinations marked “good” are good for the weakest digestion.
Combinations marked “fair” are permissible if digestion is unimpaired.
Combinations marked “poor” should never be employed unless digestion is at its highest.
Combinations marked “bad” should not be employed by even the strongest digestion.

Salads should contain no starch, such as potatoes; no proteins, such as eggs or shrimp; no oils, such as olive oil or dressings containing oil; no acids, such as vinegar or lemon juice. Salt should also be omitted.

If you’re wondering how your diet stacks up, check out the table below.
This table includes a listing of 114 commonly consumed foods and their PRAL scores.
A negative PRAL score indicates the food is basic/alkaline.
A positive PRAL score indicates the food is acidic.
A score of 0 indicates the food is neutral.

All food diets are either acid-forming or alkaline-forming. Although the body requires approximately 20% of the diet to be derived from acid-forming foods that can be properly digested to help maintain pristine health, high acid-forming diets that cannot be properly digested acidify body tissue and eventually lead to Low Chronic Acidosis that will drain and weaken the health and energy of every human cell in the body. The Acid Alkaline Food Chart (also referred to as the Alkaline Acid Food Chart or Alkaline and Acid Food Chart) has listed the various food groups below according to either a negative PRAL or positive PRAL score.
