Alkaline Diet Cook Book, by Energise For Life (

Highly recommended!  This is where I got my first glimpse into how to cook alkaline, and I still use the recipes several times each week.  You cannot go wrong with this book.  In fact, it is kind of an essential item to have for someone on the alkaline diet.  And Energise For Life is an excellent source for information and for acid/alkaline food charts.–Alkalising-Supplements–ALKALISING_SUPPLEMENTS/Alkaline-Recipe-Cook-Book.html

Acid and Alkaline, by Herman Aihara

I LOVED this book, and read several chapters of it over and over so that it could make better sense each time.  Slightly heavy with chemistry and explanations about how the body uses dietary acids and alkaline minerals in different combinations to perform different functions, but it is definitely an interesting read…and extremely enlightening about how diet directly effects your state of health.

The PH Miracle, by Dr Robert Young and Shelley Young

This was one of the first books thatI read just before I started the Alkaline Diet.  It’s strength lies in its ability to simplify the diet-related causes of cancer and other degenerative diseases.  It makes clear the fact that you truly are what you eat, and that changing your diet can radically alter the downward spiral in health that happens when people eat too many acidic foods for long periods of time.  It also has a nice selection of recipes using raw, alkaline and whole foods that enable the body to have the nutrition it needs to fight disease and remain in optimum health throughout life.
