Heading Towards An Alkaline Diet: What You Need To Know
It’s now understood that disease cannot survive in an alkaline internal environment. Nevertheless, we still find ourselves chowing down on unhealthy snacks! It’s in large part due to the fact that 95% of convenience food is processed and of an acidic pH. So in the spirit of giving ourselves some better, healthier options – today we are taking a look at a couple of ways we can alkalize our diet.
It’s alllllll about the leafy greens. The most alkaline-pH food that we can get is usually of a green hue. These foods help to drastically return your body to an alkaline state. Examples include: Kale, Spinach, Broccoli, Alfalfa Sprouts, Swiss Chard, Red Chard, Collard, Seaweed, Parsley, Brussel Sprouts, Asparagus, and Lemons. Yes, Lemons are have intensely alkaline properties.. don’t be fooled by the acidic traits! These foods help to neutralize the acids accumulated in your muscles and organs, meaning you can start to regain the OODLES of energy that is rightfully yours! Keep your intake of fresh alkaline greens steady with glasses of delicious alkaline water and you will purely feel the difference.
…and the alkaline backup team.
Did you know there’s a healthy equivalent for almost everything we would normally eat? Instead of using white vinegar, use apple cider vinegar. Instead of coffee, try making a vegetable juice. You’ll get an even-better energy boost with none of the crash.. because you are giving your body what it wants, rather than the caffeine neurotransmitter filling you with artificial energy! Other alkaline foods would be sweet potatoes, limes, carrots, beets, eggplant, figs, mangoes and ginger. When you start to incorporate more of these foods in your diet, you will watch your energy levels become absolutely unrecognizable. A diet like this is key to understanding what it REALLY means to be fully alive and full of energy! You can’t eat chips for a meal and have boundless natural energy, which leads us to..
Just about everything in your local gas station or chain corner store is a recipe for malaise and acidic build-up! You don’t find Snickers bars naturally sprouting out of the fertile earth! Nor do you find a beautiful rainforest waterfall of extra-strength energy drink! These are heavily processed foods that your body simply has a very hard time understanding, and the result is you not feeling so great afterwards. The bad part is that the damage doesn’t stop there – the energy your body expends trying to process the pre-processed is not gained back from the barely-there nutrient content of these items! Stay away!
