So how do you get your body into an alkaline, fat burning state? Here are some tips:
- EAT MORE RAW FOODS! Most cooked foods are acidic, but ALL raw fruits and vegetables are alkaline.
- Make sure your fruit and vegetables are ripe when you eat them.
- Get your leafy greens: at least one juice or meal a day! They are the most alkalizing food in the entire world!
- Eat less animal products, they are extremely acidic!
- Replace milk and dairy products with substitutes made with plant-based ingredients like coconut, hemp, and almond. Trade your butter for creamy avocado!
- If you consume an acidic food, pair it with a raw food. Add diced raw vegetables to your gluten free pasta! Have a colorful green salad with your steak!
- Replace your coffee with green tea (or energizing green juice!)
- Squeeze lemon or lime in your drinking water
- Drink less alcohol (if you are a social butterfly try limiting it to Friday and Saturday nights)
- Avoid processed foods. Read ingredient labels, if it has more than 5 ingredients don’t eat it.
- The devil is in the details! Substitute almond butter for peanut butter, sweet potatoes for potatoes, liquid aminos for soy sauce, Himalayan salt for white table salt, stevia for sugar
