“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
So very true! But how many of us realize this? How many of us are utilizing our full potential or how many of us even know what we are capable of?
Imagine what life would be if we make use of even half of our potential …or for that matter think about making use of even one-third of your potential…the results will be astounding!
Most people don’t feel anywhere near as good as they could. Funny though, lot of people think that their growing age is responsible for their lack of energy.
As we take on the challenges of our times with mounting pressure of balancing career, family and relationships, how many of us actually FEEL GOOD?
How many of us even know how it feels to ‘FEEL GOOD’?
What do we do to feel good…to feel energized and absolutely rejuvenated…ready to TAKE ON life… ready to live and feel every moment??
Well lots of factors contribute to this. An important one being, diet.
We are what we eat. Rightly said.

Alkaline Versus Acid
In every food that we eat, there are two types of residues formed in the body. The first type of food is categorized as acid-producing food. Acid-forming foods are meat, dairy products, coffee, sugar, alcohol and processed foods.
The other type of food is called alkaline-producing food. These are vegetables and fruits as well as nuts, legumes, seeds and grains.
The idea is simple…we should attempt to eat more of alkaline food and less of acidic food in every meal.
It is important to know which food falls under which category.
Coffee, sodas and alcoholic-based drinks are sources of acid, while fresh fruit juices, smoothies and herbal teas belong to alkaline.
Origin of Alkaline
Alkaline is a compound that is produced by certain minerals that are present in most foods like the ones mentioned above. These minerals include calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, sodium, silver and potassium. Well, the next time you cook, pick ingredients that contain those good minerals that are beneficial to the body.
