    Eating Guide
  • Food group: Vegetables
  • Vegetables are highly alkalising foods, helping our bodies balance our internal PH. A good dose of the vegetable food group ensures we provide the right material to the body to cleanse and nourish our bodies. Ideally, it is better to retain the water content of veggies, which frying, and baking may destroy. Switch to steaming and retain health bhi taste bhi!
