You may have heard that no disease can exist in an alkaline environment, and while none of us here at¬†F√© Fit are medical doctors, we do know there are definite benefits to eating alkaline foods. Alkaline-rich foods create more minerals and keep our pH at the optimal level our body needs to be in its healthiest state. Thanks for Healing Love for sharing their list of alkaline foods. We hope you will find this useful to your diet and well-being. __
