Alkaline vs Acidic Foods

Alkaline and acidic foods play a crucial role in maintaining a balanced diet and overall health. Alkaline foods, such as leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits, have a pH level higher than 7, while acidic foods, such as processed foods, meats, and dairy products, have a pH level lower than 7.

Eating a diet rich in alkaline foods can help balance the body's pH levels, which can lead to a variety of health benefits, including improved digestion, increased energy levels, and reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and osteoporosis.

On the other hand, consuming too many acidic foods can lead to inflammation, weakened immune system, and other health issues.

If your current diet is too acidic, one way to increase the alkalinity in your diet is by adding microgreens. Microgreens are young, edible greens that are packed with nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes. Some popular microgreens include broccoli, radish, peas, and sunflower greens. They are easy to grow, and can be added to salads, sandwiches, and smoothies for added flavor and nutrition.

Microgreens, such as those grown at Revity Farms, are also rich in vitamin K, vitamin C, and lutein, which are essential for healthy vision, bone health, and immune function. They are also a great source of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify the liver and improve digestion.

Incorporating microgreens in your diet can be beneficial for maintaining a healthy pH balance, and overall well-being. It is important to limit the consumption of acidic foods only if your diet is too alkaline.

Friendly reminder from Revity Farms; don't forget about fermented foods in your diet. They are an important part of a healthy GI.
