Focused on balancing the body's pH content, Eating the Alkaline Way is both a cookbook and a lifestyle guide that promotes healthy living. Written by organic gourmet vegetarian cook Natasha Corrett and leading nutritional therapist Vicki Edgson, it's packed with recipes, tips, and tricks for tracking daily alkaline and acid intake. They clearly explain the principles and benefits of keeping a balanced diet, the role played by vitamins, carbs, and protein; how to identify alkalizing and acid-forming food; and how an alkaline diet nourishes the body without stressing the digestive system. Flavorful recipes cover everything from a morning smoothie to salads, entrees, and even a good-night snack!

85% of reviews for this book were 5 Stars. So I'll list three 5 Star reviews and one 1 Star review for balance.
5 Star Reviews:
1) Has guides to stocking your pantry, cleanses, easy recipes, shopping guides & all the information needed. Highly recommend.
I know why celebrities are touting this book as a Beauty & Health bible. Makes it easy to incorporate alkaline foods & recipes into our daily lives!!

2) Has what I look for in every cook book: pictures of end product, easy to understand recipes & available ingredients.
Tried many recipes already & not found a bad one yet!

3) Bought it to try to boost my immunity & relieve the terrible allergies here in the Midwest. Some reviews criticized it for including dairy or being a detox program.
It does include limited dairy like goat cheese as a topping at times & up to you to exclude it.
Does have a detox section, if you want to do a full cleanse before starting the alkaline diet.
After the detox/cleanse, you're to pick and choose from the "non-cleanse" recipes as you wish.

Made meals out of this book for week for my family. After a birthday party this weekend full of cake, ice cream, and everything gluten and dairy-laden, I definitely felt the difference the next morning - full of congestion, drainage, and sluggishness. Those symptoms were going away while I ate on this diet.

One Star Review below:
I was sadly disappointed once I opened it and studied the recipes.
It DOES give a good overview of Alkalinity and why it's important. Lists what foods are alkalizing and what's acidifying (meats, dairy products, oils, sugars).
Was expecting a COOKBOOK full of recipes already alkalizing, so I didn't need to think about what foods to use each day, the work was done for me.
To my disappointment the recipes, while containing alkalizing foods- have many recipes with acid forming foods like dairy & cheese.
I wanted a format that helped me AVOID acid forming foods.
I get it, I don't have to include the dairy in the recipes, but then, what's the point?

Also this book is set up as a detox program. Where they tell to you avoid a lot of the foods they use in the recipes. Basically a really strict elimination diet.
Hoped it was an easy stress-free recipe book on how to eat alkaline daily, not go on a detox.
Though it presented useful information this book was an epic fail.
