Alkaline Foods…Your Diet’s Missing Link

Diets suck!  But if you’re dealing with inflammation and certain chroinc diseases, you may want to reaseach alkaline foods and talk to your doctor about adding them to your diet.  I’m not a doctor and I’m just sharing what has helped me so talk to your doctor before changing your diet.

Ok, I’m sure you’ve heard about alkaline or an alkaline diet but what exactly is it?  Dr. Axe’s website states that a 2012 review published in the Journal of Environmental Health found that balancing your body’s pH through an alkaline diet can be helpful in reducing morbidity and mortality from numerous chronic diseases and ailments — such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, vitamin D deficiency, and low bone density, just to name a few.  I know you may have heard of macronutrients (protein, fats, and carbohydrates) but we are living in a micronutrient deficient age.  We are literally missing vital nutrients and it’s causing all kinds of issues, inflammation being at the top of the list.  Ok, what the heck are some of these foods?  So, brace yourself but here they are: (taken from this website)

Alkalizing Greens: Organic Wheatgrass, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Moringa Leaf, Organic Spirulina, Organic Chlorella, Organic Alfalfa Leaf, Organic Kelp and Organic Klamath Lake Blue Green Algae. All of these supergreens are powerful life-force foods and are a rich source of vitamins and minerals including A, C, E, K and B-complex, iron, calcium, magnesium and selenium. They also contain chlorophyll, amino acids, bioflavanoids and phenolic compounds. Their general action is to assist in detoxification and fill nutritional gaps in the diet.

Immune Strengthening Mushrooms: Organic Cordyceps, Organic Reishi, Organic Shiitake and Organic Maitake. These healing mushrooms stimulate the body’s natural defense system and provide natural energy. Beta glucans in Reishi have demonstrated immune strengthening properties among other exciting clinical research being studied. Many athletes and active people use Cordyceps for increased endurance, performance and recovery.

Adaptogenic & Tonifying Herbs: Organic Sacha Inchi , Organic Chia Seed, Organic Turmeric, Organic Maca Root, Organic Ginger Root and Organic Black Pepper. These nutrient-rich herbs support and maintain a healthy hormonal balance, provide essential fatty acids, increase cardiovascular health and stimulate overall vitality, among other benefits.

Phytonutrient and Superfruit Antioxidants: Organic Lucuma, Organic Beet Root, Organic Camu Camu, Organic Acai, Organic Goji, Organic Acerola Cherry. These superfruits provide exceptional health benefits and are loaded with vitamins, flavanoids, phyto-nutrients and dark-colored pigments that protect from the effects of toxins, pollution and free radical damage, as well as support healthy aging.

Natural Plant Enzymes: DigeZyme Blend (Amylase, Protease, Lactase, Lipase, Cellulase). Derived from papaya, pineapple, green coffee beans and other natural plant sources, these enzymes ensure optimal absorption and utilization by the body during digestion and assimilation.

Ok, ok, I know you’re thinking “Girl!!! I can’t buy all of that!!” I know, right?!!! Who can? BUT there is a product that includes all of these superfoods and all you have to do is start your daily morning ritual by mixing two heaping scoops (10 grams) with a full glass of water, your favorite juice or smoothie to alkalize, hydrate and nourish.  See! Easy peasy!  So it really is that simple to add some alkalizing foods to your diet and you can get it here.

5 Tips to End Sugar Cravings

So, in my last post, I shared how I USED TO BE a sugaraholic.  I received several messages from people saying they wished they weren’t addicted to sugar and they wish they could eat the way I was eating. You may see me working out and eating salads now BUT, it hasn’t always been that way.  I LOVED sugar!  So much so, that I became a pretty good baker.  Yeah, I wanted REAL desserts and not store-bought ones.  I also needed to have something sweet after lunch and dinner.  It was almost like I HAD to have something sweet; like a true addict.  It was pretty bad.  Continue reading “5 Tips to End Sugar Cravings”

Halloween is Over but Employers Still Love to Play Ghost 👻

Picture it (in my Sophia Petrillo voice) Any Town, USA 2017 and a very intelligent woman is asked out by, what appears to be, a great guy! She accepts the invite and they go on their first date. The date went great! They laughed, talked a lot and got to really know each other. The intelligent woman goes home and feels like she’s met the one and can’t wait to go on another date. Days and even weeks go by and she doesn’t hear from the great guy! What happened? It appeared they had chemistry and there was a mutual connection!! Why didn’t he call?!
