Alkaline Foods: What’s in Your Smoothie this Morning?

28 Jan

Here’s a great article outlining the 7 most alkaline foods; and most of them can be easily added to a morning smoothie.  If you can’t wait to scroll down and read the article, here they are:

1.  Spinach

2.  Kale

3. Cucumber

4.  Broccoli

5.  Avocado

6.  Celery

7. Bell Peppers

Eating more alkaline foods is one of the foundations of the Clean Program.  Inviting more alkaline foods in the body helps us avoid acidosis, which is an underlying condition of many chronic diseases.  Further an overly acid system makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients, to detoxify, and to repair damaged cells.   Environmental toxins, chemical build up and emotional stress all contribute to a less alkaline, more acid state in the body.    So we can use the food we eat to help us maintain balance.

Here’s the article about alkaline foods, plus the author encourages the morning smoothies:
