Are you hungry? Great! The Gourmet Alkaline site contains more alkaline recipes than you can imagine, always testing the boundaries of the taste buds with organic, whole, and raw alkaline foods. All of the recipes on this blog will fill your stomachs with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and anything else you can imagine that will literally bring your youthful self back in just a few weeks. Some are raw and full of live vitamins and phytonutrients, others are cooked yet rich in minerals. The alkaline diet is not about eating ONLY raw vegetables. It is a balance between acid and alkaline, a prefect yin and yang, that helps the body maintain its perfect ph with minimul effort from your digestive system. If you see acidic ingredients in these recipes, they will always be smothered in alkaline ingredients to create a perfect match and a meal that, in its entirety, is alkaline.
BE WARNED! - Side-effects of the Gourmet Alkaline Lifestyle include, but are not limited to:
WAY too much energy, loss of depression, easy weight loss, clear skin, fuller hair, harder nails, lack of pain in joints, younger-looking skin, lack of illness (no more sick days), and a general sense of good health. Many actually think they are younger after a week or two of eating alkaline foods. Many experience a spiritual reconnection with Nature and the importance of protecting it. You might find yourself angry at the organzations that have sold you down a road of lies about what food is, and what is safe (and not safe) to eat. Many who adopt an alkaline lifestyle will not depend on medications anymore. Your tastes will change over the period of a few months, and you may find yourself suddenly disgusted with the taste and smell of processed, packaged, or fast foods. If you have a high-stress job, the nutrition in the recipes will give you the energy to handle that stress better.
In fact most, if not all, of your current health issues, including problems like being tired all of the time, will gently melt away. You will just have to try it for yourself to believe me. Unlike conventional medicine, which treats only one health problem at a time (usually using toxic drugs), the alkaline diet dumps large quantities of nutrients into your body the only way it can…by eating raw or whole foods that are full of live nutrition and/or brimming with minerals, fiber, anti-oxidants and all kinds of other goodies that your body has possibly been lacking for years!
Your body uses calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium to alkalize foods. After years of eating too many acidic foods (bad meat, cow dairy, processed sugar, wheat flour, wheat pasta, soy, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, table salt, white rice, pesticides, preservatives, MSG, etc.) that are abundantly common in the typical American diet, your body is weak. It has had to ”rob” its own reserves of alkalizing minerals to get that acidic food from point A to point B in your digestive tract. These minerals are stored/utilized in your bones, cells, and organs of the body. As the minerals have been depleted, your body has also been storing acidic toxins (from eating acidic foods) in their place…creating very sick cells all over your body. Think about a leaf on a tree, and how it starts to look very sick once it separates from the tree…its only source for nutrition. ”Metabolic acidosis” eventually shows up as arthritis, skin problems, mood swings, constant weight gain, allergies, constant colds, daily fatigue and a long list of other chronic minor ailments. At some point however, full-blown disease will set in and your life will go down hill quickly from that point forward. Cancer, diabetes, osteoporisis, severe arthritis, obesity, heart disease, advanced aging, premature death…one or more of these await you if you do not change your diet now. Juicing vegetables helps to detox cells of your body from these stored toxins (also known as fat), and to make space for all this great stuff that you are feeding it by eating majority alkaline foods. When you restore the health of your cells through diet, your whole body heals…it has no other choice.
Can you name any prescription OR over-the-counter drugs that can do all this, and without harming you in even a small way? In fact, it is the opposite that is true.
You will not have to count calories, nor will you have to ration your portions. Eat all you want. When you eat healthy, you won’t feel hungry for hours at a time because your body will be happily digesting quality food, instead of sorting through empty calories and sending up endless hunger signals to your brain because it is still needing real nutrition. You will have to change your current eating habits. You will need to open your mind to new tastes and not expect the tastes of processed ingredients, corn and soy-fed meat, and genetically modified vegetables grown with fertilizers that you have come to know. How long has it been since you actually tasted real food? I promise you, the tastes that you will experience from eating real whole and alklaine foods are amazing! Those who are afraid to change their diets are the ones who are truly missing out. This blog will show you how to do anything from simple alkaline cinnamon toast to full-blown 5-star dinners. In a short time, you will find yourself making up your own recipes. It is addicting.
Expect more than you expected. The fountain of youth is not just a fountain of alkaline water, it is also a fountain of food…lots of raw, colorful, beautiful food. When you treat your body to this kind of royal treatment, you essentially plug back in to Nature and your vitality is restored. This is called optimum health. So get your juicer, start your shopping list, and get ready to feel better than you ever have!
