Here we have the 6 Alkaline Foods at The Wharf Marketplace that will rejuvenate, clean, and create new cells for your body:

ASPARAGUS

Asparagus is one of the greatest green vegetables for balancing your pH levels in your body. One of my favorite recipes is whole grain pasta with asparagus, garlic, olive oil, and basil leaves. The combination of the asparagus and whole grain pasta creates a neutral pH in your body, making it the perfect alkaline meal. The Wharf Marketplace has the most consistent selection of asparagus - you won’t see me buying my asparagus anywhere else.

AVOCADOS

Avocados are my favorite, they are a nutrient dense, alkaline superfood. Avocados have the good fats that can help you to lose weight and they up your high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol) Stop in at The Wharf Marketplace and we can help you pick out the ripest avocados.
