Alkaline Foods List

A balanced diet is comprised of 80% alkaline forming and 20% acid forming foods

*NOTE: For people who are endeavouring to re-alkalize their body, we suggest a 90%-100% diet of alkaline forming foods. Suede Hill's pH Happy Caps are specifically formulated to boost your pH quickly, thus helping you become healthier faster.

  • Foods that taste acidic generally leave an alkaline residue at the end of the digestive process.
  • Foods such as meats, dairy, and sugar do not have an acidic taste, but they deposit the most acid at the end of the digestive process.

It is the job of alkaline minerals to neutralize these acid residues for the cells to remain healthy. The cells and the fluid that surround the cells, must be of an alkaline pH in order for the antioxidants to be effective against free radicals.

MSG in Health Products

Most people have heard of the dangers of 'MSG' or Monosodium Glutamate. However,many don't realize that it is in almost everything that is prepackaged or manufactured. MSG is not only cheap, but it enhances flavours of whatever food it is put into making it even more 'irresistible'. Since people have been alerted to the troubles and dangers of MSG most companies avoid using it by that name. However, the manufacturers have not eliminated using MSG, they have simply renamed it.

What's worse is manufacturing companies are adding greater quantities than in the past. They are even targeting people who purchase so called 'health products'. Most health powders and bars contain some type of MSG. Unfortunately those energy/protein bars you've been eating to stay healthy probably have calcium caseinate or whey which usually are laced with MSG. From our research anything with the words isolates or hydrolyzed are actually hidden MSG.

The next time you're about to consume your quick and easy health bar or protein shake you should read the label on the back and look for any of these other names used to hide MSG:

  • Anything "hydrolyzed"
  • Any "hydrolyzed protein"
  • Any "flavors" or "flavoring"
  • Anything "enzyme modified"
  • Anything containing "enzymes"
  • Anything "protein fortified"
  • Anything "fermented"
  • Anything "isolate"
  • Anything "enriched"
  • Anything "vitamin enriched"
  • Calcium caseinate, Sodium caseinate
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Yeast food
  • Yeast nutrient
  • Soy protein
  • Soy protein concentrate
  • Whey protein
  • Whey protein concentrate

These are only a few names manufacturing companies are using to mask the use of MSG. If you are looking for an easy and great source of protein that does not contain any fillers or chemicals Suede Hills Alfalfa Powder is for you.

Our Alfalfa Powder is organic real food, packed with more protein than beef, classed as raw food, and is full of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and digestive enzymes. All of which your body utilizes to recover after a long workout or for the rest of us, just dealing with the day to day stresses of life.

Avocado Power

Calling all guac lovers: Avocados keep you thin, protect your vision and may even prevent cancer. Read below to find out more about their amazing benefits.

Eye opener

The Power of AvocadoesProtect your vision with a few slices of avocado at lunch or dinner. Avocados are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants found in the retina that keep eyes healthy; they also may help prevent age-related problems like cataracts and macular degeneration.

Cancer fighter

Extracts from avocados kill or stop the growth of precancerous cells that lead to oral cancer and may have a similar effect on other cancers, according to a recent study. Researchers credit the fruit's unique combo of nutrients-which include folate and vitamins C and E.

Nutrient booster

Add avocado to salsa for a bigger health payoff. A study from The Ohio State University found that people absorbed four-and-a-half times more of the cancer-fighter lycopene from the tomatoes when avocado was added; the healthy fats help you absorb more nutrients.

Healthier fat

Skip the mayo, and go for creamy avocado on your sandwich. It packs four grams of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (which lowers cholesterol), two grams of fiber, and one gram of protein per ounce, making it a lower-fat, more-filling substitute for the white stuff.

Try Cindy's amazing raw chocolate pie made with Avocados you can now enjoy a healthier dessert.


Use our Suede Hills Green Leaf Stevia and this is one healthy dessert!

Better than Green Tea

Spring has sprung here at Suede Hills Organic Farm, most evidently shown by the amount of dandelions spreading across our lawn! Our Stevia beds have been tilled by our hard workers and are pretty much ready to be planted in! We will still have a good month or two before the plants are ready to go into the ground though. The trees are starting to grow their leaves, even the olive trees are beginning to leaf out!

With the weather unpredictable during spring many people like to have tea when it gets a little chilly after those spring rains. If you haven't tried Olive Leaf Tea you should. It's delicious, has a mild taste to it. However Olive Leaf Tea has much more going for it than just flavour!

Did you know Olive Leaf Tea has ten times more antioxidants than Green Tea? It's true! Oleuropein, found in olive leaf, is amazing and can work wonders!

Oleuropein has been found to help:

  • combat viruses, inhibiting them from replicating

  • lower cholesterol

  • lower blood pressure(by expanding the blood vessel)

  • keep away fungus

  • keep away bacteria

  • keep away viruses

  • prevent cold sores and herpes

  • maintain a strong and balanced immune system

  • prevent shingles

  • fight the common cold and flu bugs

  • reduce fevers

  • inhibit and destroy yeast

If you have found that you've been sick recently or that you could use some of these health benefits, try some Olive Leaf Tea for yourself!

This disease can cause:

Benefits of Vitamin D

This vitamin is also referred to as the 'Sunshine Vitamin' because when we spend time in the sun our bodies actually produce Vitamin D. This vitamin is amazing and has been proven to help prevent Arthritis, Birth Defects, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Heart attacks, Hypertension and helps prevent pregnancy problems!

The main use of Vitamin D in your body, however, is to regulate the use of calcium and phosphorus in your body. It also helps your body properly form strong and healthy teeth and bones.

Often Vitamin D deficiencies are diagnosed in the winter when most people aren't outside much and their bodies can't create enough of the vitamin to go around. When your body does not have enough Vitamin D the most common symptom is depression, often found during the winter months, but extreme deficiencies cause rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.

As the days shorten and grow colder we will be spending less time outside and when we are outside we are usually bundled up. Less sunshine means our bodies create less Vitamin D and we need to supplement this loss with our diet. The problem is that Vitamin D is not found in many foods.

Many places will try to tell you that Vitamin D can be found in factory made supplements and in cows milk. However, these supplements are chemically made, often with fillers, and thus are not natural. These unnatural supplements do not break down in your body correctly, and unless you are a baby cow the cows milk does not break down correctly either.

Vitamin D can be naturally found in the mature Alfalfa plant. Alfalfa is a natural vegan source of Vitamin D. Every other source has to be 'fortified' with chemically made
Vitamin D which your body can not break down or use properly.
