Alternative High Alkaline Dessert

In my new quest to keep my alkaline levels high ( range is measured in the blood from 1-14 and 7.35-7.45 is normal.  each food has its own numerical value on the scale with under 7 being label as acidic and above that as alkalinic ), I am discovering new ways to taste great mixtures of food, while keeping a higher balance of alkaline foods.  Fruits and Vegetable naturally are alkaline, while breads, pasta, dairy, animal protein, and grains are more acidic.

As a result, I made this dessert that doesn’t compromise flavor, taste, and health.  Its low cooked peaches and apples, with raw bananas slices topped with cinnamin and walnuts….just delectable!



The Aquarium

Guess where the least place I’d expect to find sweet potato fries?  Well the title gives it away, but the day I went to the Long Beach Pacific Aquarium, they had a special with delicious sweet potato fries.  I also ordered a trukey wrap with potato salad (potato binge day) and it truned out to be pretty good.  They also had a multi-berry filled pie for dessert that looked very rich and tasty, but unfortunately, I had no room nor time to eat it!

The Upper level food court is where this treat was found.  The food choices are on display as a plate model, so you can choose your meal.  Expect to stand in long lines on days where featured exhibits are ongoing.  Once you finally get to the fornt, you want to order many things since you know you’d have to return to the lines if you are hungrier.  I opted to go withour dessert to see if I could eat the huge plate of lunch I bought.

Seating is an open space nearby with choices of indoor or outdoor with traces of kids, families, and special groups of people everywhere.  A little messy, the food court has a few commercial food options as well.  It may not be a hotel, but the food richness and quantity more than made up for it.
