Tip for the Day
Alkaline-forming foods are the best way to avoid an acid-forming diet. Acid-forming diets lead to disease and interfere with your natural balance of your alkaline body.
Raw fruit and vegetables leave an alkaline residue in your bloodstream once digested, even the acid-tasting fruit, such as oranges and pineapples.
Raw uncooked fruit does not cause acid in the bloodstream. Some fruit might be acidic before it enters your body, and might digest in a more acidic environment than other fruits, but it is never acid-forming in the body or bloodstream unless it is eaten in a wrong combination with other foods.
The reason for this is simple – fruit eaten on its own, on an empty stomach digests in less time than other foods and leaves an alkaline residue in your body.
Not only is fruit easy to digest, but it is appealing to all our senses in its natural state. Fruit looks good, fruit smells good and taste good.
Let’s remember this week is about adding the good things. Add more fruit!
