Acid-Alkaline Spices and Herbs Food Chart is a list of acid or alkaline values for common herbs and spices. I explain the values for this food chart, and related charts, in my Basic Acid Alkaline Food Chart Introduction.
Remember: these tables help you make better food choices. But, the only way to confirm they are having the desired effect, is by measuring your urine pH. Fortunately, this is a simple process, using widely available pH test strips or meters.

Alkaline Herbs and Spices for Vegetables
Roz told me she found the Acid-Alkaline Spices and Herbs Food Chart very interesting. Also, she added that she cooks a lot of vegetables.
So I agreed that spices and herbs are a great addition to vegetables. Because they make it easy to stick to an alkaline diet. With a high proportion of alkalizing plant-based foods.
Then I asked Roz if she had any good spicy veg recipes to share. Because I find a lot of recipes from cookbooks and cooking websites are hard to follow. But I love recipes from friends that have been tried and tested. So if you have any please send them in the Feedback Form below.
