A good friend of mine and I were chatting today about the importance of the acid-alkaline balance necessary for good health, we discussed that this should be seemingly easy to achieve. Simply eating real food, mostly plants as the main event in our meals, and other food such as the protein of meat and eggs as the sidekick, this should see us in a nice balanced place we thought.
However, in today’s society of fast food, processed and sugary foods it quickly seems not so easy to achieve after all. And let’s not forget our love of our daily coffee and nightly wine (or two) all of which are highly acidic.
What’s the problem with being out of balance and more acidic than alkaline? Disease and illness thrive in an acidic environment, and that is a big problem. When it comes to good health balance is everything. The acid-alkaline balance is measured in pH, on a scale of 0-14, 7 is considered neutral, and a reading of 7.365 to 7.45 is necessary.
How do you achieve a necessary reading? Make smart food choices, eat an alkaline diet, lots of leafy greens, fruits and veggies (the main event). Meats, eggs, nuts, oils and fats etc (the sidekick). Avoiding the chemical, sugar laden food supplied in our supermarkets as much as possible.
There are of course nutritional supplements that can compliment your diet and give you a helping hand to achieve the acid-alkaline balance. There are green powders that can be added to your morning juice or water to give you a great start to your day.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay tuned for our next blog early next week. I would love you to subscribe to my blog and share with friends that may enjoy it.
Stay healthy, happy and grateful!
