First, a little history on the Nutritious You shop. Eight years ago, when Marina and her family moved to the beautiful island of Siesta Key she had a huge misconception about health and nutrition. She thought, as long as you are not gaining weight, you are healthy, even if you are eating cookies every day. Her neighbor, at that time, introduced her to the concept of alkaline-acid balance and it changed her life. It turns out, all of the subjects and substances in the world have their own alkaline-acid balance. Each of our organs has its own balance too. The highest alkaline levels are in our blood and range between 7.35-7.45 pH while the stomach is most acidic (1.5 – 3.5 pH). The human body as a whole has about 7.45 pH alkalinity in a healthy state. How do we achieve it?

We achieve it by consuming 70-80% alkalizing foods. After all, you are what you eat. What you consume, you become.

Let’s look at the popular food items in the Standard American Diet (SAD): coffee, muffins, treats/desserts, pasta, cheese, pizza, meat, and alcohol. All these foods are on the far end of the acidifying spectrum. When we eat mostly acidic foods, our body gets off balance. Often this compounds over many years. This chronic imbalance creates a silent chronic inflammation in a human body that becomes a disease later in life. To add to this grim picture, stress and metabolic processes in human body and environmental pollution are also acidic and need to be balanced.

The good news is we can fix it by increasing the amount of alkalizing foods we consume to 70-80% per meal. Those are veggies, fruits, soaked nuts and seeds, freshly squeezed juices, and many other plant-based ingredients.
