The most important question asked this week is: Are apples alkaline?
The answer is clearly yes from the Acid-Alkaline Fruits and Fruit Juices Food Chart, but that chart only tells part of the story. The story is only complete when you eat apples as part of a healthy balanced diet. That depends on what else you eat, and how you serve the apples. One day, I’ll give you a healthy recipe plan that includes apples. In the meantime, I will explain the importance of alkaline apples with a new Alkaline Fruit List.
I will update all the Alkaline Food Lists because the old Acid-Alkaline lists have many failings. There is still room for improvement, but the new lists will pave the way for a recipe-based system. This is necessary because simple lists take food out of context. They are good for seeing if one food is better than another in isolation, but this has limited value. As a first step to improving my alkaline foods lists, the new lists are calorie-based and include more important nutritional information. The easiest way for me to explain is to show you the list. Then if you click on any link within the table, you will see an explanation.
