The pH level of a food determines whether it is alkaline or acidic; a pH level of seven or less is acidic, and a level over seven is alkaline. A well-rounded diet should include a balance of alkaline and acidic foods Since many traditional breakfast foods, such as fruit juices or sugary pastries, can be acidic, it is a good idea to introduce a few alkaline items into your breakfast menu.

Fruits and Vegetables

Alkaline fruits and vegetables include potatoes, corn, apples, bananas, grapes, carrots, garlic, broccoli, peaches, all berries and squash. You could have baked potatoes or hash browns for breakfast as a side dish, or you could dice the potato into smaller pieces and cook in an omelette along with other alkaline vegetables for a strong alkaline portion of the meal. Alkaline fruits can be mixed into cereal or yoghurt for a sweet addition to an alkaline breakfast.

Sources of proteins that will help make your breakfast more alkaline are eggs, fermented tofu, cottage cheese, chicken breast, yoghurt, fermented tempeh and millet. Some seeds and nuts will also help raise your alkaline content, such as chestnuts, flax seed, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and almonds. You can sprinkle seeds and nuts into yoghurt, granola or cereal to make them more alkaline.

Milk, vegetable juices, mineral water and various teas are also alkaline. Milk can be poured over cold cereal, added to coffee or tea and mixed into hot cereals to balance acidity in the overall meal. Alkaline teas, such as green tea or ginseng tea, can be drunk alongside or instead of milk or juice.
