Eat Alkaline :)

Have you heard of "acidic foods" and "alkaline foods"? It's really just fancy terms that refer to your blood pH. And, fyi - you need healthy sources of both but in today's "highly process food" culture if you're not focusing on eating alkaline you're mostly like getting acidic foods the majority of the time! 

The whole idea behind adding more alkaline foods into your diet is for disease prevention. We like that, right?! Things like arthritis, cancer and other diseases all thrive in an acidic environment. Not good! 

If you can longterm support your body with alkaline foods you are more likely to stay healthy. :) Let's face it - 1 in 3 people are getting cancer these days. Food is important and what you eat does matter! But, you already knew that. :) 

Another plus to eating alkaline foods is that you will have you more energy as your body won't have to work so hard to keep your blood alkaline! You're being nice and helping it out. 

So, I put together these little charts for ya to help you understand a bit better! I know, I know . . . I go for the dessert too at times (and you should!) but you want to have some broccoli in there as well. =)

You can always go online and Google to see whether or not a particular food is acidic vs. alkaline and it's rating (see 1st chart). 

Ok- this is something I would love for you to do, but it's not mandatory. :p Go to your local health food store and pick up some pH tester strips. 

Don't not test yourself (like I did at first) because you're scared of what it might say. :p It is what it is and you can only start acting on that once you know the reading!

This is such an easy, pain-free and low cost action step for disease prevention- I wish everyone would do it! If a person's pH level showed up below a 6 they could be a risk for a whole host of diseases and may need treatment from a medical doctor . . . not to freak ya out! But, wouldn't you want to know?!

If the reading is around a 7 - that's perfect!

About an 8-- pretty much ok, but 7.5 is still really ideal. :)

Testing your pH to see whether your body is alkaline (healthy) or acid (unhealthy) is so simple! It can tell you a lot about what's going on inside and just think of how much faster doctors could treat real, life threatening diseases if people would do take this simple action step! Right- a lot of diseases would be caught a lot faster.

Alright- now go take this action step towards future health!!!!


Had you heard of "acidic" / "alkaline foods" before? 

Do you eat greens and leafy veggies? {awesome alkaline foods!} 

Have you tested your pH before? Will you? =)
