Challenge of the Week: Have a Fruit or Vegetable at EVERY Meal!
So…how did you do with our No Bread Challenge last week? I’ve got some really great emails back from people who committed and not only feel great, but lost 2-3 pounds last week! (Not bad for only cutting our 1 food item for only 7-days.)
We all know that eating fresh fruits and vegetables are CRITICAL to a healthy and balanced diet.
Yet…all too often, we’re sitting down to eat cereal with milk, meat and potatoes, or a sandwich with processed lunch meat and cheese with a colorless slice of tomato on it.
Here’s the REAL Deal…..
DAIRY = ACIDIC & MEAT = ACIDIC
Fruit & Vegetables = Alkaline
The more acidic your blood, the more tired you get, the more your immune system lowers, and the more susceptible you are to developing colds, flus, and much more serious diseases.
Your body spends all it’s energy and time “fixing” the problem rather than spending its energy and time on”optimizing” your body.
Something you probably didn’t know:
Foods that you THINK are acidic to your body like grapefruit, oranges, and lemons actually have an alkalizing effect in your body.
So…even though they are acidic BEFORE you eat them, doesn’t mean they have that affect on your body.
So….this week, I Challenge YOU to eat a Fruit and/or Veggie at EVERY meal.
You will find you have SO much more energy through the day- and who doesn’t need that!?
It’s not as easy as you may think, so having fresh cut up fruit and veggies in the fridge will keep you prepared!
***On a side note, you want to focus on eating your fruits earlier in the day because of the sugar content
