My goal with Nutrition Consulting is to share ways to be your best self!
The word Alkaline means so much to me…
I am in love with water!
Water to me represents life and at night my new favorite thing to do before bed is to watch Nature Shows that involve water environment. If you are a “Netflixer” check out Wildest Islands for some visual relaxation.
I am so busy reading these days that reading at night has not become a way for me to unwind and watching drama or reality tv show before bed does not promote an Alkaline State of Mind for me. Last nights episode was the Dreamy Caribbean….and it ended with my husband knowing I had finally checked out and a kiss and off the light went.
Also, if you know me…I am a lover of being in the water surfing, swimming, playing, having my baby, and living on the water.
So, today I want to share with you my best tips of creating an Alkaline State of Mind.
Top 3 Favorites:Alkaline State of Mind
1. Waking up in the am and drinking a smoothie: Nothing to me is better than having this in the morning. Each morning Sophie and I go to the Vitamix and make our Smoothie. It’s loaded with berries…I love the Whole Foods Big Bags of Blueberries and Strawberries. I feel this is the quick and easy way to get your berries in for the day. I add 2 cups of berries (loaded with antioxidants), 2 tablespoons of a power mix (chia (for EFA’S), maca (for energy), and cacao (for magnesium, antioxidants and mood booster), next is the greens powder (wheat grass, barley, kelp, chlorella and spirulina are my favorite alkalizers in this mix)(greens are the best way to alkalize the body especially first thing in the am when you wake up your body is the most acidic-so starting off with this drink in the am is key to getting your body well on its way to alkalinity!) Just think this drink can shift your bodies ph to and 8 on the ph scale.
2. Using Natural Care Body Products is my next favorite way…I would also throw in my shower filter as part of this process. Having a shower filter is crucial to filtering out the nasty chlorine that the city pumps into my house. The skin care routine is using Eminence Products (I like the Age Corrective Line) www.eminencestore.com Commercial skin care products are made with chemicals that have a massive toxic load to the body and make you acidic.
3. Drinking Water is the best choice for becoming more ALKALINE. Drink quality water such as purified water or even better, fresh spring water (tap water usually has fluoride in it and is very toxic to the body, which your dentist may not tell you.) If you only chose one of these 3 tips, choose this one!
