Eating to Improve PH Levels

 Okay so my PH has been running between 5.5 and 6.0 normal is 7.0. So, yes I am too acidic, trying to get normal is not easy I am finding. Working out hard to make sure I sweat real good, drinking lemon water, switched my mayonnaise and butter to vegan.

I love, love butter and mayonnaise, nothing like a little baked potato with my butter. Love a little egg in my egg salad with my mayo, okay you get it. Down side both are acidic, and I had to make some changes. I visited my local health store and asked if they have tried two of the products I was looking at, which they said they use them on a regular basis. So, I purchased Earth Balance natural buttery spread soy free, and Follow Your Heart soy free vegeniase.

Have to say for those who don't know soy is the most highly mutated food, 93%. If you read your labels you will see it is in almost everything.

Okay I have a new love, vegeniase, sorry mayo our relationship was just unhealthy. It is amazing, I even got the southern man to change over from the Woodstock Farms brand we have grown to love. So, this morning I made myself a energizing breakfast wrap, which by the way started to fall apart. I believe it was the butter from the eggs, and vegeniase, to much moisture, but it was good, and filling.


3 cage free eggs
Mix of greens such as spinach, lettuce, you get it.
1 slice onion
1 Avocado
1/2 tsp of the following bee pollen, flax seed, chia seed, nutritional yeast
Follow Your Heart vegeniase
Ezekiel grain wrap

I scrambled my eggs, and cooked them like an omelet, stays on the wrap better. While that was cooking I put the greens, onion, and avocado in the food processor. Heavily Spread some vegeniase evenly over the wrap, place the egg on top, spread the processed greens, onion, and avocado on top, and sprinkle with the bee pollen, flax seed, chia seed, and nutritional yeast.

Eggs are also acidic, I was going to add some ground turkey that southern man cooked up yesterday, but meat is also acidic. I had meat yesterday, so I opted for just the eggs. I ate two and a half hours ago, and I'm comfortably full, and energized.

High acidic levels led to other health problems, and I'm thinking it might have something to do with my high blood pressure. Up point the sores that started forming on my finger tips, and by my cuticles, are almost gone. I also purchased some Vitamineral green at the suggestion of my man at the health store, so we'll see. My biggest issue is I love to many acidic foods, and the vegan life is not for me.

Oh I bought a flat of strawberries this weekend, alkaline, to give me some thing else to eat that was not acidic.I made this wonderful pie with some.


1 Can coconut milk
1 1/2 cups raw cane sugar, bad it's acidic, next time I'll use honey.
3 Tbsp Carob powder
1/2 Cup coca chips
1 Pint strawberries

Do not shake the can of coconut milk, just remove the thick cream from the top and put into a blender. You can save the liquid for smoothies if you want. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high making sure everything blends well, and there are no chunks of chips left. Refrigerate for about a hour, or until it thickens, pour onto homemade pie crust, or spoon into dishes as  pudding. Top with extra strawberries, and enjoy.

This was so good even the 17 year old liked it, southern man and the 15 year old not so much. Hey, that's okay there was more for me and the teen. I was going to make some whip cream with the coconut milk, but you have to refrigerate it for 24 hours. Needless to say I will be keeping a can in the fridge for when I just think hey I wanna make this.
