Not That Healthy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Honestly Healthy: Eat with your body in mind, the alkaline way (Hardcover)
I just received this book and hope I can return it, as after flipping through the intro I found the authors recommend certain "healthy" foods that are anything but.
I was so excited when I ordered this book, as I recently read another book about alkaline eating and adopted a lot of the principles. However, many of the recipes in this book call for agave syrup, which is marketed as a healthy and natural, yet is ultimately a highly processed sweetener containing more fructose than high fructose corn syrup. There is typically 90% fructose in agave! High fructose usually contains 55% and we all know how awful that is! Soy products, like soy milk and tofu, are also referenced despite the negative effects they have on our health.
Sure, the recipes look great but I question the authors' credibility if they are telling readers to use the ingredients I discussed above.

I agree that the ingredients you mention in your comments are unhealthy. On that basis, could you suggest your very best alkaline eating recipe book? I'm looking for one.
