Nutrition is one of the biggest building blocks of a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Imagine waking up feeling refreshed, much the way you did as a small child? Imagine life with no aches, no joint pain, no bloating, no sinus pressure, and no inflammation? Eating a clean diet will make a world of difference. Your body will feel more alive when more alive foods are consumed.
How does it feel when we eat a big meal? Stuffed, bloated and uncomfortable? Maybe some indigestion? What if we planned to eat until 80% full? What if 80% of our meals were plant based? Could we train ourselves to eat only 20% from grains and animal protein – for optimal digestion?
Plant based foods are more alkaline, and more healing for the body. Eating 80% alkaline, and less than 20% acid forming foods is a good rule of thumb. Animal protein, refined food, processed and fast foods are all acid forming, and should be kept to a minimum for optimal health. Learn more about Acid and Alkaline forming foods to choose a balanced meal no matter where you are.
