Acid-Alkaline Food Balancing Guide
ACID - ALKALINE FOOD BALANCING - The body regulates blood pH to stay within the narrow range of 7.35 to 7.45, making it slightly alkaline. Blood that has a pH below 7.35 is too acidic, whereas blood pH above 7.45 is too alkaline. Both extremes are likely to lead to disease. The body is able to assimilate minerals and nutrients properly only when its pH is balanced. Foods are generally categorised as acid or alkaline based on the residue they leave in the human body after they have been metabolized.
Foods such as orange juice and lemon juice are acidic in their natural state but turn alkaline after they have been metabolised in the body. Knowing which foods have an effect on the body’s pH helps to establish a balanced diet that leads to optimal health. This Guide lists 389 foods according to their acid or alkaline forming potential.
FOOD COMBINING - Food combining refers to the selection of foods which are compatible with each other in terms of digestive chemistry. The digestive system does not process all foods at the same rate. If the balance is wrong, the body cannot properly digest, utilise and assimilate nutrients in food. This Guide provides an easy to follow overview to food combining.

Microgreens are a new way of producing food. Coined a 'functional food', home-grown microgreens combine superior nutritional values with beauty and the pride of nurturing your own healthy greens. Microgreens develop their first true leaves that make contact with light by photosynthesis. However, they still carry the primal energy of the seed as they have not yet fully adapted to the their future as plants of light. In this way, the 'baby leaf' which is the first true leaf after the cotyledons (seed leaves) represents the epiphany of a true plant emerging into the light of the cosmic sun. Microgreens have been found to contain high levels of all the goodness that one looks for in nutrition.
Minerals, vitamins, taste and flavour are all present at a higher ratio compared with adult plants.
