Foods to Eat to Maintain pH Balance
Maintaining the proper pH balance in your body may sound technical and difficult, but in reality, it is quite simple. First, understand that your body needs to maintain a slightly alkaline environment to survive and thrive. Then adjust your diet to eat more foods that have an alkaline effect on your body. This does not mean you should totally avoid acid producing foods, just limit them. Your diet should not cause your body to become too alkaline or too acidic. For pH, it’s all about balance.
Foods to eat to maintain pH balance include a certain amount of alkaline forming foods and a certain amount of acid forming foods. In general, you should aim for 75-80 percent alkaline forming foods and 20-25 percent acid forming foods. Pure, distilled water is typically neither acid forming nor alkaline forming.
Alkaline forming foods are mostly vegetables like asparagus, artichokes, lettuce, onion, peas, spinach, carrots, green beans, and broccoli, to name a few. Fruits include lemon, tomato, avocado, and grapefruit. Other alkaline forming foods are sprouts, legumes, nuts, seeds, herbal tea, and vegetable juice.
To maintain pH balance, you should eat a minimal amount of acid forming foods. Examples of acid forming foods are meats, poultry, most seafood, sweets, white bread, white pasta, chocolate, coffee, soda, fruit juice, and most oils. You don’t have to totally avoid eating these foods to maintain pH balance, but keep these foods within the 20-25 percent proportion of your diet.
Now that the weather is relenting a bit (can you say HOT!), I love sitting outside and enjoying a cold drink while watching the sun go down. This time of year lets me indulge in my favourite drink, lemonade. Here is a great recipe that is low in calories but big on flavour.
6 large lemons (1 1/2 cups juice)
3 medium limes (1/3 cup juice)
3/4 to 1 cup honey
6 cups water
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
Lemon and/or lime slices (optional)
1. In a 2-1/2-quart pitcher, combine lemon juice, lime juice, and 3/4 to 1 cup honey. Add water and raspberries. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
2. Just before serving, gently stir to combine. Pour into ice-filled glasses. Add lemon and/or lime slices, if desired.
