Top Ten Tips for adding Alkaline foods to your diet

In PART 1 HERE, I discussed the reason we should care about acidity and alkalinity.

Research shows that diets consisting of highly alkaline foods — fresh vegetables, fruits and unprocessed plant-based sources of protein, for example — result in a more alkaline urine pH level, which helps protect healthy cells and balance essential mineral levels.

A scientific review published in the “Journal of Environmental and Public Health” in 2012 suggests that a diet based heavily on alkaline foods can benefit your health.

Here are my top ten tips for  adding more alkaline foods to your diet.

  1. Cooked or raw, dark green leafy vegetables are among the most alkaline of all vegetables.
  2. Alkaline forming fruits are lemons, oranges, cherries, dates, figs, nectarines, pears, watermelon, apples, bananas, and avocados.
  3. Jicama, kale, sweet potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, bell peppers, beets, eggplant, cucumber, lettuces, mushrooms, squashes (including pumpkin), greens, and most herbs and spices.
  4. Instead of heavy condiments and sauces, use alkaline options such as ginger and garlic in your cooking!
  5. Instead of frozen vegetables (more acidic), get to the grocery store or your local farmers market for fresh, organic options
  6. Try to eliminate anything out of a can or a box, including most of the options in the freezer aisle.
  7. Reduce wheat flour, white flour, beef, shell fish, cheese and dairy, processed foods.
  8. Replace spagehtti with spaghetti squash
  9. If you drink one can of soda it takes 32 8oz. glasses of water to neutralize it. Drink lots of water!
  10. Use cucumber and jicama to dip in your guacamole!

 

 

 

 

 

Vitality & Longevity: Secrets to A Thriving Life – PART 1 Beware Fake Foods

Eating addiction health care concept with a group of metal fish hooks using fast food as human bait as fried chicken hamburgers and french fries as a symbol of the dangers of being hooked on sugar fat and salt.

BEWARE = Ultra-processed called “Fake Foods”  foods are causing widespread chronic disease and shortening life span.

LONGEVITY SECRET # 1= Eat a diet that’s nutrient rich without caloric excess.
Ultra-processed foods now account for nearly two-thirds of the calories eaten by humans in the United States. And that diet style is spreading worldwide.

In his book,  Fast Food Genocide, Joel Fuhrman, MD,  cites convincing evidence that the consumption of these foods is also lowering our intelligence, fostering anti-social behavior, and creating mental illness. And that the avalanche of fake food that’s taken over our nation and is spreading across the world is, in fact, feeding learning disabilities, and depression, and aggressive behavior, and even drug addiction, violence, and crime.

Reducing or eliminating our consumption of processed foods can be a challenge for a lot of us. If you were to remove all the foods from the typical supermarket that contain added sugars, you would remove 80 percent of the items in the store. The shelves would be almost empty.

The scientific literature also shows that excess calories shortens the lifespan. But nobody is talking about it even when we know. We know that studies on animals show that when they cut back their calories a little bit and feed them good nutrients, they can live one and a half times longer.

Eat longevity foods!  We  have the ability to essentially wipe out diseases that are so prevalent. It is exciting that we have the potential for protection against these chronic diseases.
