              SUPERFOODS: EATING YOUR WAY TO ALKALINE HEALTH.


 Super Foods are much more nutritionally dense than the foods we usually eat. As whole foods, they contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients as naturally associated in nature. These foods should be eaten everyday and as often as possible to order to stay healthy and keep an alkaline blood PH. 

    Heal Obesity, reverse Blood sugar levels and lower Blood pressure

 Do you think that its just a coincidence that the majority of Superfoods have an alkaline PH? Eating alkaline foods is essential to keeping your body strong and disease-free. The diseases that are rampant among the people of the western world today could be slowed down to a crawl if we could get the population to consume a 60-80% alkaline diet. High consumption of plant foods are a mighty boost to your immune system.

  • Grapes
    Dark colored grapes provide polyphenols (antioxidants), vitamin C, and natural sugars.
  • Berries
    Low in sugar, high in phytochemicals, antioxidants, fiber,  calcium, magnesium and zinc, berries are easy to eat.  Eat a wide variety of them daily: blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries and more.
  • Oranges
    Rich in beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamins B1 and 6, potassium, folic acid, calcium, and iron, oranges are just what you need for a quick afternoon or breakfast snack.
  • Bananas
    A rich source of Vitamins B and C, potassium, magnesium and iodine.  They are easily digested and a high energy source. You can carry them anywhere for easy snacking.
  • Apples
    Every apple provides five grams of fiber and plenty of antioxidants, including flavonoids and other polyphenols.
  • Avocados
    Avocados provide a terrific source of monounsaturated fat. I like to chop one and add to a salad. They are also great inside of a sandwich of any kind.
  • Broccoli
     Broccoli is loaded with disease fighting chemicals and vitamin C. This is a true superfood. It is also hated by children everywhere.
  • Mushrooms
    A great source of phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and selenium, mushrooms are also easy to put into varied dishes without the risk of discovery by your kids or other mushroom haters.
  • Tomatoes
    Tomatoes are high in lycopene, a potent carotenoid antioxidant. It has been found to be even more nutritious once cooked.
     
  • Carrots
    Carrots contain high levels of beta carotene, are fun to eat and easy to carry. Chop your carrots into bite-size pieces and add to a salad.
     
  • Nuts or natural nut butters
    Essential fats are the key here. Be sure to choose peanut butter and other nut butters that are "natural" so to avoid High Fructose corn syrup and other not very healthy ingredients. And make sure you give only chopped nuts to kids under five to avoid choking.
  • Beans
    Filled with fiber, protein and iron, beans are a nutritious addition to your diet, and are very easy to put in soups.
  • Yogurt
    One cup of yogurt provides 13 grams of protein and almost 500mg of calcium, making it one of the best sources of protein and calcium for your family if you are not a vegan.
  • Sweet potatoes
    These root veggies are loaded with beta carotene, vitamin E, vitamin B6, potassium and iron. Good all-around food choice.
     
  • Mangos
    This tropical fruit provides more than a full day’s serving of beta-carotene, as well as fiber, potassium, and vitamin C.
  • Quinoa
    Quinoa  looks and tastes like a grain, but it's a seed that contains amounts of iron, potassium, vitamin B, fiber and protein.
  • Salmon
    Even though this is not an alkaline food, it is highly recommended. Salmon contains heart-healthy omega-3 oils and is easy to prepare.
     
  • Green leafy vegetables
    Greens, such as spinach, kale, bok choy, Swiss chard and romaine lettuce, contain beta-carotene, vitamin B, calcium and lutein that work together to support overall health.
  • Dark Chocolate
     Loaded with magnesium,
    antioxidants and chemicals that mimic the love response in our bodies, Dark chocolate is a great snack. 


 Eating a diet everyday that contains all of the needed nutrients can be tough. Even though we try to eat a high alkaline superfoods diet, there are just days where we shortchange our health. On days like this we will be glad that we ate correctly to keep our immune system strong. Whether it be flu season or mosquitos carrying west nile virus, we must not compromise the disease fighting capabilities of our immune system.

               
            
Keep your pH balance with a high alkaline food diet.
