Hey Valentine…Go Alkaline! by Chara Rodriguera

Hey Valentine…Go Alkaline!

No matter what Valentine’s Day means to you, it can be a great opportunity for self-love and self-care. Alkalizing your beautiful body with our Lizzy Jays Pure Greens, Crisp Greens and Veggie Mix is one of the easiest ways to balance your pH level.

What is pH and what does it mean to alkalize?

Your pH level is the acid-alkaline measurement of your system. Your body and being thrives when it’s in balance. The pH of healthy, oxygen-rich blood is between 7.365 and 7.45, or slightly alkaline. However, the standard American diet tends to be very acidic, which puts a lot of stress on your entire system. An acidic environment is more conducive to disease, inflammation, weight gain and aging. By consuming alkaline foods and drinks, you make it easier for your body to maintain its proper pH and therefore, optimal health, a happy weight, clear glowing skin and overall youthfulness!

Here are some great alkalizing foods to add to your diet:

  1. Green Drinks (like Lizzy Jays Pure Greens and Crisp Greens)
  2. Avocados
  3. Broccoli
  4. Cucumbers
  5. Celery
  6. Garlic
  7. Beets (see Lizzy Jays Veggie Mix)
  8. You really can’t go wrong with veggies!
  9. Tomatoes
  10. Lemons (yes, tomatoes and lemons metabolize alkaline)
  11. Coconut
  12. Olive, Coconut, Flax, Hemp, Grapeseed oils
  13. Chia seeds
  14. Quinoa
  15. Lentils

Cut down on some of these acid forming foods:

  1. Sugar
  2. Alcohol
  3. Coffee
  4. Candy/sweets
  5. Processed food/fast food
  6. Soda/Sweetened fruit juice
  7. Jam/Jelly
  8. Processed meats
  9. White rice/bread/pasta
  10. Artificial sweeteners

Please note, it’s not the pH of the actual food that is most important, it’s the pH of the food when it’s metabolized in the body. For a complete alkaline/acid food list visit www.phmiracleliving.com/pdf/pHFoodChart1.pdf)

It’s not always convenient to eat and drink healthy and alkaline. So, we make it easy! All our Lizzy Jays juices are packed with vitamins and nutrients to help you look and feel fabulous. Our most alkalizing juice elixir is the Pure Greens because it combines an awesome mix of kale, spinach, romaine, celery, cucumber, parsley lemon and ginger.  Please know the Pure Greens kind of taste like a delicious salad and they are not sweet. They are my favorite and I drink one or two a day. However, if you feel you want something a little more moderate to start, our Crisp Greens are a delicious blend of kale, spinach, romaine, celery, cucumber, parsley, lemon, ginger…plus apple and pineapple, which gives them the perfect amount of sweetness. Another customer favorite is our Veggie Mix because it combines all the previous veggies and fruits, plus carrots and beets. Beets are fantastic for purifying your blood so you can build gorgeous strong bones, muscles, skin and hair.

The key to optimal health is balance. Making mindful, educated choices just gives you more power. So, go ahead Valentine, enjoy some of that big heart-shaped box of chocolate, then balance your pH level with our super alkalizing Pure Greens, Crisp Greens or Veggie Mix!

We LOVE them and know you will too! For more information about the health and antiaging benefits of all our Lizzy Jays Juice elixirs, please visit: http://www.lizzyjaysjuice.com or give us a call at: 973.532.2707. Let’s go alkaline together!
