I am alkaline.
Over the past (almost a) year i have transformed my life. I started my journey with alkalinism as solely just changing the foods I ate. I thought of it as being vegan, but more strict. I stopped eating meat, dairy, eggs, hybrid fruits and vegetables and I quit drinking. I didn't do it slowly, I just woke up one day and decided that from that moment on i would be alkaline. Below is a list of the foods on the approved Dr Sebi nutritional guide.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, registered nutritionalist, or scientist. Everything in this post is based on my own personal experience. Take it as you like.
As the days turned to weeks and eventually flowed into months, being alkaline became so much more than a "diet." It wasn't about what I ate it was about who I was becoming by changing what I ate.
My mind began to clear. It was as though I had been living my life in a dense fog that caused me to have no direction and be content to live in the dark. When I changed what I put into the body, my temple, the fog began to clear and life came into sharper focus.
My life changed dramatically in the first few months of being alkaline. I lost interest in "going out", I finally saw that scene for what it was. A way to keep the youth medicated on poison (alcohol), numb to the world and numb to themselves. I was waking up.
I quit taking my birth control after being alkaline for only 2 weeks. I did some research about what the hormones do to a woman's body and I couldn't believe I had been taking "the pill" for nearly 5 years.
I stopped drinking tap water as soon as I realized that the American drinking water is flooded with fluoride. Fluoride calcifies your pineal gland, making you care less and affecting your natural hormone production and regulation.
My world was shifting. Shifting away from late nights filled with partying and lazy mornings of eating meat and cheese and drinking mimosas, "that brunch life". Instead I was reading more, researching foods and alternate medicines. I started practicing yoga everyday and snowboarding whenever I didn't have class (I was living in Montana at this time).
Being alkaline became my world. In the beginning I felt uncomfortable to tell people I was vegan, even though i don't even identify as vegan, I am alkaline. It was as though society had trained me to be ashamed to be different, embarressed that I don't eat meat.
Now I am proud. Empowered that I was able to break the mold society had formed for me. I don't eat meat or dairy or eggs and I don't drink alcohol and I'm only 23 years old. Standing up for what I believe is right is all I want to do. I believe that humans were not created to eat meat or dairy and I now freely share these opinions with anyone who I discuss my diet and lifestyle with.
Veganism is our future and alkaline is the next step.
The most common words I hear upon telling people I'm alkaline and explaining which foods I don't eat is, "but what can you eat?!" When I first learned about the alkaline diet I thought the exact same thing. Society has conditioned us to believe a meal isn't complete without a piece of meat. I now know that meat should never even be considered a meal at all.
I am alkaline and my favorite food is still pizza 🍕 pizza free from cheese, no meat, pizza that is entirely plant based.
Today I'm going to share my recipe for alkaline electric pizza!
(I would like to say that I rarely measure my ingredients so the meausurments below are approximatations)
What you will need
For the crust:
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 2 cups kamut flour
- 1/2 cup garbanzo flour
- sea salt
- onion powder
- dried oregano and basil
- splash of grapeseed oil
For the sauce:
- 10-15 Roma tomatoes
- fresh basil
- onion powder
For the pesto:
- 2 large bunches of fresh basil
- 1/4-1/2 cup grapeseed oil
- 1/4 cup soaked walnuts
- 1/8 cup hemp seeds (optional)
- onion powder
For the cheese:
- 1-2 cups soaked walnuts (or Brazil nuts)
- spring water
- onion powder
- 1-3 key limes
Whatever veggies you like!
I like to use sliced roma tomatoes, onion, pepper, shroomies, fresh basil and zucchini, olives if I have them.
Preheat oven to 425°F
Crust: combine all dry ingredients for crust in a large mixing bowl, add splash of oil (make sure the oil you use is approved to be heated by Dr Sebi, I use grapeseed, sesame, or avocado). Slowly mix in spring water until a dough ball is formed. Be careful not to make it too wet or sticky, you should be able to pick up the whole dough ball and not have it stick to your hands. Put aside, cover bowl with a damp cloth.
Sauce: slice Roma tomatoes in half, place in glass dish sliced face up, season with salt, onion powder, and fresh basil, roast in the oven until soft, about 15 minutes. Once roasted, blend until smooth (if you don't have a blender, just cook them down), place in cast iron pot on low heat, allow to simmer for about an hour, this will cook some of the water off.
Pesto: blend together fresh basil, oil, soaked walnuts and spices, add spring water to reach desired consistency. I usually try to keep the pesto thick and less watery when using for pizza.
Cheese: blend until smooth the soaked walnuts, spring water, lime juice, and spices. Again I like to keep the cheese thicker and less watery for pizza. It should be like the consistency of ricotta, it isn't going to be like dairy cheese that melts.
Once everything is made find a nice open counter space to create your pizzas.
- Roll out the dough and place onto a greased baking dish (I only use cast iron or glass, ONLY, if I don't have access to glass or cast iron I use metal baking dishes covered with unbleached nontoxic parchment paper). Bake for 10 minutes. There should be enough dough for 2 to 4 pizzas depending on how big you want them and how thick you want the dough.
- Once dough has cooked 10-15 minutes remove and make your pizza.
- I layer the sauce then cheese then pesto then the toppings.
- Bake pizza for 15-30 minutes more. It varies depending on on wet your sauces were.
- Check the pizza by lifting up a corner (carefully, it's hot) and seeing if it's crisped up on the bottom. If it lifts easily without bending it's ready.
- Take your pizza out, put the next dough in.
- Slice it up and ENJOY!
My favorite part about eating alkaline pizza is knowing that it's so good for me! There aren't any harmful chemicals or preservatives or meats and cheeses. Every bite can be enjoyed totally guilt free 🤗
