Alkaline diets, PH and low acidity are buzz words I’ve been hearing a lot of lately. The alkaline diet is about eating more foods that are more alkaline on the PH spectrum to help our blood achieve a more balanced PH level. Even though there is a lack of research in this field, it is safe to say that eating more fruits and vegetables are good for you!
The modern wester diet tends towards a lot of processed foods that tend to also be very acidic, such as refined grains, dairy, sugar, soda and meat products.
So, to help re-balance, it can be a good idea to eat more foods that come from the other end of the spectrum, such as fresh fruits and vegetables – and especially those leafy greens! And there’s a big bonus; eating a more alkaline diet full of fresh greens can also do wonders for your skin, creating that irresistible glow.
So, the smoothie of the week is packed with just that – leafy greens – for alkalinity, detox boosting and a nutritious punch. Oh, and it’s really delicious too!
