The alkaline vegetables list follows on from my earlier Acid-Alkaline Vegetables and Vegetable Products Food Chart. I describe the improvements in Alkaline Food Lists Explanation, which you can read now, or click into from the help links in the list below.
According to the latest advice from nutrition experts at Harvard, vegetables should form about one third of all we eat. This is measured by energy (calories), and so I list all foods in units of 100 calories. On a daily basis, you should therefore consume 600-700 calories from the vegetable list below. Please note that I have limited the initial list to vegetables included in the USDA key foods. If you need additional foods in the list, please ask at the help desk.
Energy defines the quantities in a healthy diet, but there are many factors that define quality. Ultimately, diet quality depends on your personal needs. That is why I am driving Foodary towards providing personal healthy eating plans. Prior to that, I want to go beyond basic acid-alkaline information. I have extended PRAL from earlier food charts, which measures acid/alkaline forming foods. I have added fiber, sugars, and sodium, as these are common factors that affect your health.
