Top 10 Alkaline Foods to Try

Top 10 Alkaline Foods to Try

Last updated 

Hey people! Mwaka here back again, and this time I am sharing the secrets of my favorite foods. I love my fruits, grains, and vegetables. But did you ever ask yourself, what are Mwaka’s top 10 alkaline foods? I did, and that’s why you’re reading this now.

The Alkaline Environment

When I started my plant-based nutrition, I didn’t understand it. I thought it was all about not eating animals and animal products. Now I know it's about feasting on plants instead. I don’t feel restricted, I feel privileged to have so many amazing alkalizing options.

So many people are addicted to toxic processed foods that increase their risk of chronic health issues. Dr. Sebi taught us that the cause of all diseases is mucus and accumulation of acid in the body. So how do you ensure your body is healthy? Alkalize it!

Dr. Sebi’s nutritional guide is a list of foods that provide the body with an alkaline environment for healing and optimum health. The foods on the list are natural and organic from Mother Nature to meet all the body’s nutritional needs, with readily absorbable minerals and nutrients you need to thrive.

Alkaline foods support the correct acid-base balance of the body. They prevent the toxic build up of acids which cause mucus. Alkaline foods are also nutrient-dense, nourish the body and reduce the inflammation that can damage your health.

My Top 10 Alkaline Foods

Having a cardiovascular disease, I have struggled with anemia for most of my life. Moreover, I struggled with constipation which medications could not fix. These alkaline foods have been hand-picked to meet my specific needs. Maybe some of your favorites are here too?

1. Cucumbers

Cucumbers have a high fluid content helping you meet your hydration needs. They are also high in potassium and magnesium, two minerals most people are lacking! If you struggle with bad breath, this is just the vegetable for you. Naturally anti-bacterial, cucumber will help your breath smell fresh for longer. Eat a few slices of cucumbers before that date, you’ll thank me later!

Do you want to know the best part of the spa day? The cucumbers under my eyes! They contain natural chemicals that nourish the skin and reduce irritation and inflammation. They are the secret weapon behind my glow!

2. Raisins 

Raisins from seeded grapes are high-calorie and naturally sweet treats with many nutritional benefits. These include antioxidant properties, rich in calcium for strong bones and teeth, and rich in iron which is critical in blood formation. If reading this has you salivating, try them in Dr. Sebi’s Baked Pears and let me know how good it is.

3. Mango

Show me a fruit that has it all, and I’ll show you a mango! This “king of fruit” doesn’t need hyping, it speaks (or tastes) for itself. The best part is you can never go wrong with a mango: slice it, chop it, blend it, you name it!

Other than their rich and juicy flavor, mangoes improve your immunity! The nutrients it contains enhance the production of white blood cells that play a key role in fighting infections.

Mangoes also help with blood sugar regulation. They contain antioxidants, fibers, and other components that improve your response to carbohydrates. Mother nature at its best!


4. Avocado

I think I am addicted to avocados! The good thing is they contain heart-healthy fatty acids (good fats), making them the perfect match for me, considering my condition. I don’t know what the world would be without guacamole dips! Low in sugar, and high in fiber and potassium, this fruit is perfect to be eaten in any form or way. The high fat and nutrient content makes them naturally satisfying, and even calming, reducing anxious thoughts.

5. Apples (Baldwin)

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. These delicious treats are good for the heart, promote gut health, and are also good for your teeth. In addition, they can be a good weight loss and maintenance food because it is high in fiber and water which are great for satiety. Make yourself an apple smoothie in the morning to fill your day with energy!


6. Tomatoes (cherry and plum only)

This is an ingredient that doesn’t miss in any kitchen. They are rich in antioxidants, low in calories, and potassium, and contain lycopene that has potent anti-inflammatory action reducing risks of cancer and heart diseases.  Tomatoes are one of the few foods that seem to be more nutritionally accessible when cooked, specifically that anti-inflammatory lycopene. 

7. Walnuts

I wasn’t a big fan of walnuts until I had the no-bake walnut date bars, and I kid you not, it was the beginning of a beautiful love story. Some of the benefits of this nut include improved brain function, reduced risks of cancer and heart disease, and is rich in antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation. Walnuts can also be made into a delicious creamy milk which when sweetened with dates is an incredible nutritional treat. Mood and mind boosting!

8. Tamarind 

The tamarind is a signature fruit on the Coast of Kenya. Tamarind juice is my go-to juice on a hot sunny afternoon. Other than being refreshing, it is packed with anti-inflammatory properties that protect against inflammatory conditions. It is also one of the best foods for removing unwanted substances, like fluoride, from the pineal gland

The taste is super sour, I love it, I have a sour tooth for sure. Have you tasted the tamarind fruit? Was it for you?

9. Zucchini

The star of one of Dr. Sebi’s popular recipes, the Zucchini boat, the vegetable is approved in Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide because of its benefits that include high in antioxidants, good for digestion, and rich in nutrients like manganese, potassium, and proteins. 

My favorite way to eat the zucchini is as noodles, or zoodles. They soak up delicious flavors and act like spaghetti with a lush tomato sauce. They are a game changer in replicating a range of Italian dishes, and fun to make too. Spiralize a zoodle, or get the kids to have a go!

10. Bell Peppers

The reason I love salads, whether raw or stir-fried, is because of the burst of colors bell peppers give my meal. They are an excellent source of potassium, and they are composed of 92% water making them good for hydration. In addition, they contain iron, folate, and fiber making them a super vegetable. 

Green bell peppers are usually bitter and the red ones are sweeter. Which one is your favorite? They are great for stuffing with wild rice and herbs to make a delicious and nutritious meal that is satisfying on all levels.
