The first one being wheatgrass which you can get in a number of forms.
Firstly, you can buy wheatgrass kits and grow/juice your own.
Once you have the equipment, it’s very cheap to grow and juice your own wheatgrass and is the most superior source in terms of nutrients and freshness and taste.
Secondly you can get packs of fresh wheatgrass that you simply juice. This is a fantastic way to get fresh wheatgrass without the faff of growing your own.
Thirdly, you can get frozen wheatgrass that is frozen upon juicing. You simply thaw and drink.
Fourthly, you can get wheatgrass powder. This is by far the most popular way to take wheatgrass and whilst it is not quite as tasty or potent as fresh wheatgrass juice, it is a wonderfully convenient and inexpensive way to get the benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice, without having to juice it yourself.
I have spent some time sourcing the best places online to buy your alkaline wholefoods and superfoods.
The wheatgrass juicer that I have, love and recommend is the Omega juicer. I’ve had it for years and is very reliable, quiet, takes up a fairly small amount of worktop space and maximizes the amount of juice you get from your wheatgrass.
My friend has the Huron juicer which also does smoothies. He loves it and I am very impressed with it.
You can also get manual wheatgrass juicers, which are smaller and a cheaper option. I would personally go with an electric one though, much easier and nicer to use.
Other superfoods that I use and recommend are low-fat things like goji berries, maca (to make a malty drink, as an alternative to coffee or cocoa), coconut oil (as a moisturising body product) and other green drinks, such as barleygrass powder.
Whole Food Staples
I buy a lot of my staples online in bulk and recommend that you do the same.
I buy thinks like organic medjool dates, organic brown rice, organic buck wheat, organic bulgar wheat, organic quinoa, organic millet, organic wholewheat pasta as my daily cooked meal staples.
Beauty & Body Products
An often-overlooked aspect of following an alkaline diet it to use natural body products that contain no or as few harmful chemicals as possible. You want to avoid things like sodium laureth sulphate (SLS), parabens and aluminium as a start, as well as fluoride in your toothpaste.
I find it easier to find and buy natural beauty/body products online
