Did you know if your body is too acidic it can lead to inflammation and illness? A more alkaline body will help to create wellness. This great info graphic and accompanying article from MindBodyGreen.com shows which foods can help your body PH stay on the more alkaline side of life.
Interestingly, it’s how your body processes foods which determine the PH, so something that may seem acidic like a lemon, is actually quite alkaline once digested…and is very beneficial to the body, helping to keep your body PH on the alkaline side.
Just because we’re kickin’ sugar, doesn’t mean we have to be a total buzz-kill on sweets, right? So here’s a YUMMY dessert that gets all it’s sweetness from a banana.
