Arleneia Olson woke up one day recently and decided to give up eating foods that were acidic or full of fat.
Instead of eating bacon, eggs and grapefruit for breakfast, she started eating a baked potato and a spinach smoothie for her morning meal.
For lunch, Arleneia started eating broccoli, pickled cauliflower and watercress. For dinner, she began consuming turnips, cashew nuts and eggplant.
After a couple of weeks of eating her new alkaline diet, Arleneia was feeling lethargic and was constantly hungry. Arleneia wanted to eat a healthy diet, but she also wanted to eat foods that tasted good.
One night, a solution presented itself. Arleneia decided to go back to eating pizzas, hot dogs and tacos on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On the other days of the week, she would continue to eat the healthy foods.
Now Arleneia is trying to figure out what to do about dessert.
