Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are enjoying this weekend as much as possible all depending on where you are in the world with the restrictions and different rules. We all just have to do our best to get through this pandemic and enjoy live as much as possible with what we have and can do at the moment.
I wanted to share with you my recent studies and changes I have implemented in my daily lifestyle and diet especially which is the alkaline diet. You may know it or have heard about it or not, but I have been looking into this about the last couple of years. What I love about the alkaline diet is that it’s not so much a diet its more a lifestyle and adjusting what you eat on a daily basis to obtain as much alkaline as possible. I am all for a healthy lifestyle but without any extreme and I do the 80/20 diet rule which means 80 percent of the week I’m all healthy (Monday to Friday) and then I have 20 percent which is my weekends where I can cheat and eat a few things extra. This 80/20 rule really works for me and I believe with anything you need to try different things to find out what works best for you because we are all different and therefore its important to find the right way that keeps you motivated and happy so you don’t feel like you are missing out on certain things.
Now, back to the Alkaline diet which actually is a measure of eating as many greens as possible to give your body and cells as much antioxidants to be as healthy as possible and to be able to fight off diseases and cancer cells. When I have been reading about alkaline diet, antioxidants levels and diseases you learn how the body cells work and how a strong alkaline diet can boost the cells in making an environment in the body that makes it difficult for cancer cells to evolve and further more grow. The higher level of antioxidants in the body the more difficult it becomes for cancer cells to grow and expand which I find so important today as so many are diagnosed with cancer every day. I’m not saying the alkaline diet is any kind of cure because its not but I do believe that if we can make a difference in protecting ourselves by just eating a more green diet, then why not…..
So, what is it that you need to eat more of to go along the alkaline diet. Well, it’s quite easy – just anything green like broccoli, kale, spinach, cucumber, kelp, sprouts and parsley. These veggies and fruits are highly alkaline and there are two other groups of moderate and low alkaline food as well. The moderately alkaline group contain veggies like avocado, peppers, cabbage, celery, beans, tomato, ginger, garlic, onion, lettuce and lemon/lime fruits. The low alkaline group also have many amazing veggies like asparagus, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, peas, red potatoes, lentils, almonds and olive oil.
I have implemented the highly alkaline foods into my daily diet and then I also do the other two alkaline food groups as well. Once you get into this habit it just becomes another daily part of your life but I can certainly also feel a difference in my mood, stomach, digestion and just knowing I’m doing something good for myself and my body along with my multivitamins just gives me an overall peace of mind. It’s so important to take good care of yourself both inside out and remember that the human body is like a car, machine – if you don’t treat it well it will not be able to perform its best.alkalineantioxidantsBlogbloggerbodydietenergyenvironmentfruitsgreenhealthlifestylemindmindsetspiritveggiesvitaminswellbeingwellness
