Water? I’m supposed to drink WATER?

Here Is What Happens To Your Stomach If You Don’t Drink Enough Water!  Read more….

A healthy practice to get into is to just sip water throughout the day.

Water is also far healthier than coffee first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and it will boost your blood pressure back up to normal levels as they naturally drop through the night.

Sweetened juices and sugary sodas do not count for liquid intake. They compound dehydration as the added sugar and salt means that extra water is needed to flush them from your system.

If you’re not crazy about plain water…add some lemon.  This will also help to balance your pH!

Drink up!

The typical American diet consists primarily of toxic and acid-forming foods like processed sugars, refined grains, genetically modified organisms, etc. This leads to an unhealthy acidic pH.  Here is a simple drink using baking soda and lemon to balance that pH.  Click Here to read more!

Let’s Make Some Alkaline Water!

How to make alkaline water

The water is alkaline when its pH value is adjusted so that it is about 8 or 9, which is a base.
The following is a simple way to achieve an alkaline effect on your body:
You will need:
1 jar of water (2 liters), clean filtered water (if only tap water is available for you, then you should use it)
1 organic lemon, washed, cut into eight pieces
1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt (available in health food stores)
Preparation:
Fill the jar with the water, add the lemon slices (do not squeeze them!)
Then add 1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt, cover it and let it sit during the night (8-12 hours) at room temperature.
Wake up and drink three glasses of this water before anything else for the best alkaline balance in your body.
Try this tomorrow and your body will thank you!

Visit The Healthy Food Place for more info!

If you are not into making your own alkaline water…you can find high alkaline bottled water at the market!  I found these at Trader Joe’s and Sprouts!

Make sure to drink an adequate amount of water each day….  Rule of thumb, 1/2 your weight in ounces each day, of course depending on weather and exercise!  There are a lot of different ideas on how much water you should drink.  You need to listen to your body, and do what’s right for you! Or check out the Hydration Calculator! Your pee should be a very light clear yellow! Cheers!  #Food 4 Thought 🙂
