I am new to this forum, so I better introduce myself. My name is Sasha. I am 40 years old with two small children (5 and 1,5 years old) and full time job. I've been on Spark sites for years but still overweight and unable to do much, partly because I am a lousy cook. I don't know much about cooking and don't like to do it. Recently my sister-in-law was diagnosed with cancer, and i started researching diets for her and came across this alkaline/low acid diet recommendations. It says that in order to fight/prevent cancer we should eat daily:
- a variety of 6 vegetables (4 raw, 2 cooked) = 60% alkaline;
- 2 Fruits (must be ripe or tree ripened) = 20% Alkaline;
- 1 Good starch (as listed below) = 10% Acidic
- 1 Good protein (as listed below) = 10% Acidic
The site than lists all foods (http://www.breastcancersupport.org/Low_Acid_Diet.php)
I am struggling now to integrate it into the SparkPeople menu planner to come up with meaningful menu plan for her and myself. It's hard cause I don't know much about cooking and never made my own recipes.
Does anyone here knows anything about it? Could you point me to a good site or anything helpful?
I much appreciate any help on this topic.
Thanks and health to you all.
