    It's official! Happy Summer Everyone!

    And with that comes the magnificence of Healthy, Delicious, pH Alkaline Foods.

    There is amazing energy in the foods we eat so this month I want to share with you some of the top alkaline foods that I personally eat to ensure I keep my energy high. With all the summer activities going on you do not want to feel sluggish or tired, and it is a proven fact that eating an alkaline diet with help you to feel more vibrant and alive. What better way to spend your day!

    You can certainly find ALL of these amazing foods at your local grocery store or better yet, at your local Farmer's market.

    Spinach, Kale & Romaine Lettuce are rich in vitamins and minerals. The folate is a mood enhancing mineral and actually lowers depression so eat more spinach, kale and romaine lettuce to feel happier because when we are happier we are more energetic. There is nothing more energizing than a spinach salad, or some yummy kale chips.

    Almonds and Walnuts are protein packed with a good source of magnesium. The magnesium helps convert sugar into energy. This is a great snack for the afternoon when you need a pick me up and also easy to carry with you for a "quick fix". Don't forget to also sprinkle them on your salads or add some sunflower seeds with them to mix it up.

    A glass of water when you feel tired will more than likely give you the boost of energy you need by hydrating your body. We feel sluggish when we are dehydrated so keep your body hydrated to feel more energetic, especially in the heat or when outside. I know this isn't "officially" a food however it's just as important. By also adding fresh lemon to your water in the morning and night is also an excellent way to get your source of alkaline in your water.

    If you haven't used Coconut Oil, now is a good time to begin. Coconut oil is a fat that converts quickly into energy and you can also cook with it as well as use in your shakes and smoothies. It certainly gives your dishes an excellent, unique, delicious flavour. You can also enjoy raw coconut as well or add it to your salad toppings too. The latest healthy craze is all about Coconuts!

    Lastly, Dates, Figs & Raisins are an excellent alkaline source. I love to dip my dates and figs into raw honey, and then roll them into raw crushed almonds or coconut. What a wonderful treat! The raisins are also fabulous as a salad topper. Did you know that raisins are a good source of potassium and magnesium? These two minerals are both very effective in neutralizing the acids in your body and help check acidosis and other related condition. There is no better snack to alkalize your body than with dates, figs & raisins, and also get to a natural state of weight.
