Hello Journeyers, New Year…New You. Let’s begin with our diet.
Have you heard of the alkaline diet? It’s based on evidence that suggests that acid-forming foods prevent the body from healing properly.
This leaves your body acidic and potentially makes you more susceptible to diseases and illnesses. In contrast, alkaline foods keep your body’s PH level between 7.3/7.41 which is the normal range.
Alkaline foods have been shown to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, weight loss, even cancer.
The alkaline diet avoids sugar, dairy, wheat and other high-gluten grains as well as an excess consumption of fruits, while emphasizing fresh vegetables along with greens.
In the mornings I take a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with “the mother” or drink water with lemon. Yep, they’re days when I make myself a cup of coffee and eat foods that are highly acidic but I try to eat it in moderation.
View the great infographics below from Acid Alkaline Food to see a breakdown of which foods to stick with and which to avoid. Enjoy!
