    My question is this.. i love this blog by the way!… but, I am looking to adopt a vegan flexible ketogenic diet for my son, for health issues. It is imperative that his ph stay alkaline, though. What is your knowledge surrounding this? With a plant based diet (he will drink bone broths, though), will/ do the plant foods/ veggies keep you alkaline enough as is, or should I be monitering ph?

      Right now we are plantbased, but more carb heavy.

      Hi, Brittany, thank you for all the kind words! Sorry for the delayed response – my “real job” is in the busiest week of the year right now!

      Good news – a lot of vegan keto foods are alkaline! I honestly don’t know enough about body alkalinity to say whether you should monitor your son’s pH (your doctor would be a much better resource!), but I can tell you that there are plenty of alkaline nuts and veggies that are champions on a ketogenic diet. 😀

      Avocado, almonds, coconut, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and greens (just to start) are all keto staples, and alkaline foods!

      This is a great topic for a post, so I’ll definitely be going into more depth soon. Thanks for posting, and I’d love to know how you and your son are doing with this!
