*Alkaline Vs. Acidic Foods*
In order to maintain optimum health it is essential to consume lots of alkaline rich foods. When your body is in an alkaline state it is able to fight off disease,cleanse your blood, naturally flush out toxins, bacteria, worms, and parasites. Disease, fungus, parasites, and yeast thrives inside of an acidic environment and puts the body in a state of stress. Your body has to work twice as hard to stay healthy when you’re feeding it tons of processed junk foods. It has to break those foods down and barely gets any essential nutrients from the overly processed cooked foods. Your body has to then pull those nutrients from other organs to maintain a balance. When you’re not getting the vitamins and minerals needed your immune system is compromised which makes you vulnerable to illness.
Am I saying you have to eat 100% raw, although that would be awesome and I’m sure your body would jump for joy haha, I am not saying to go 100% raw. I am suggesting that you find the right balance for you, but incorporate WAY more raw foods into your daily regimen. Raw foods will provide your body with natural energy, essential vitamins, minerals, and yes you will still get your essential amino acids (proteins).
Looking at the PH scale will help you to measure how alkaline or acidic a food or your body is. The blood needs to stay slightly alkaline in order to keep the body in a healthy state. You can encourage this alkalinity in your body by eating more alkaline rich foods vs. acid forming foods. Below we will discuss some of the best foods to consume and some of the acidic foods to possibly stop consuming or eat less often. I suggest consuming at least 60-80% raw alkaline rich foods plus drink a ton of water and consume 20-40% acidic (this is considered your cooked foods grains, beans, etc)
Dulse, Nori, Kelp (Seaweed Vegetables)
Watermelon (with seeds)
Meats (Chicken, Steak, Fish etc)
Milk (Substitute using Brazil Nut Milk, Hemp Seed Milk)
Cookies, Cake, Pies, Donuts
Fried Foods (French fries etc)
White rice, white sugar, white bread, white flour (substitute for spelt bread, rye, amaranth)
Artificial sweeteners (splenda, aspartame etc) use Raw agave, coconut nectar, or dates instead
White salt (Substitute for himalayan pink sea salt)
