Small Changes That Make Big Differences

Taste Better, Feel Better, Better For Us!

Many people set themselves up for failure when they try to make drastic lifestyle changes. This could mean a number of things, i.e., it could become too challenging after a period of time, or you miss your comfort foods, drinks, etc., time is short and it’s easier to pick up fast food.

There are a lot of reasonable reasons to make conscious choices about “adding” the good and “minimizing” what’s not good for you. Starting with small changes that make big differences is an amazingly graceful way to make huge strides.

Another thing I like about small changes is our bodies have intelligence, point them in the right direction and we will follow!

Here is what worked for me from a perspective and application:

Perspective: If you can shift your perspective of food from simply being fuel and hydration from simply to quenching thirst, to understanding it's individual values as healing properties, you will begin to exhange not only your body water (about 70% of weight), but also make other small changes in your main and side courses and the way you prepare them, convert acidic snacks into alkaline snacks, etc., in ways you never imagined.

For example: coffee is highly acidic, probably the most acidic thing we can drink, mostly because of brew cycle. While coffee is not good for you, you can exchange it for a much less acidic (but still delicious) version called "cold pressed" coffee, reducing acidic significantly and keeping a much loved beverage.

Remember acid to alkaline is a 20:1 ratio. This means it takes 20 parts of alkalinity to diffuse 1 part of acid. Or, 20 ounces of pure water to diffuse 1 part of acidic coffee. You can see why reducing acidity in coffee or other "acid" hotspots you may have is critical to the majority of acid you have incoming.

It doesn't help that we are alkaline by design, but acid by function (breathing, digesting, thinking...the list goes on). Technically I don't suppose we were concerned about our pH or acid/alkaline ratio, until most of us no longer had enough alkalinity within us to DIFFUSE incoming acid rain. It seems through degraded food, water, and air, combined with lots of stress, as a people we've used up our alkaline reserves.

How do we help ourselves? First I suggest targeting your acidic hot spots, what's causing you the most incoming acid? Then, create an exchange or a shortcut to diffuse that acid. At the same time we can work on some fundamental foudational changes that will enhance our alkalinity.



Transitional Acid Conversions

Common Acids

  • Hot brewed coffee         
  • Sugars                        
  • Fast Food                    
  • Vinegar                        
  • Meat (red & white)        
  • Orange juice,soda          
  • Starches (pasta/rice
  • Processed Oils 
  • Food Preparation                     


Conversion Option

Foundational Application:

  • Start exchanging your body water (you are 70% water – think about a flower vase when you don’t exchange the water). This means begin drinking pure water or water that has been pH enhanced or a green drink when you wake up in the morning, stop before meals and resume an hour after meals. You can also make lemonade with stevia as your alternate drink of choice.
  • Rehydrate yourself through sipping a little bit often. Fresh Lemonade, Rooibos Tea, pure water, are all great ways to reyhydrate. Pouring a glass of each with a straw (yes at the same time), will allow you to rehydrate by sipping until your thirst signal turns back on, usually about a weeks worth of sip, sip, sip.
  • Add fresh lemon or lime to your water. Both are pre-digestively acidic, post digestively alkaline, and I consider both God's Miracle Food for healing, alkalizing, and softening gunk and helping cleanup our organs.
  • Make your salad dressings with fresh limes or lemons and good cold pressed oils like Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, and lots of spices, see recipes on side panel.
  • Add cold pressed oils everywhere you ca...
  • Make sure you are taking in enough Omega 3,6,& 9 oils everyday through your butter exchange, condiments, fish, avocados, or capsules/liquid supplements.
  • Add tomatoes, cucumbers, everything that is green, at every opportunity.
  • Simplify your food preparation – keep salad greens loose in a refrigerator drawer, unwashed, but mixed and ready to go. You can rough cut lots of different veges each week and keep in a large bowl of water in your refrigerator, ready to grate, chop or dice.
  • Stir frying in avocado oil, or steaming, and even baking are great ways to prepare veges, fish, etc. (avocado is a high heat cold pressed oil) and a major shift from frying and boiling.
  • Make dinner your most important meal – minimize the acid (meats, potatoes) digestion should cease before retiring, your healing cycle requires it.
  • Disgestion creates acidity, so..........Chew your food many, many times, the more you chew the less acid your digestive tract has to produce to break it down.
