Nuts, Almonds, Cashews, WalnutsMost people are aware of the benefits of eating NATURAL foods.

Nuts are great natural foods, a rich source of healthy fats and protein.

They are also typically low glycemic foods.

Stop to think for a moment how nuts are actually eaten in a truly natural environment.

Digest Your Nuts Better

Nuts are picked off the tree, then you have to crack the shell open. So you end up with just one nut in your mouth at a time.

[ad name=”Ardyss Enzymes”] You have a minute to chew before the next nut goes in. If you thoroughly chew your nuts, it makes digestion and absorption of the fats and protein much more efficient. You make it a lot easier on your digestive system. You get more nutrition out of each nut eaten, if you take your time and chew each nut individually.  This is a lot better than shoving a whole handful of nuts into your mouth at once, taking a few bites and swallowing a mass of nut chunks.

So try it for fun, eat one nut at a time and chew until you get the consistency of nut butter, like almond butter of peanut butter. Your digestive system will thank you.

From an alkaline standpoint almonds are best. That doesn’t mean you should avoid other nuts. Just keep the diet balanced with up to 80% alkaline foods overall.

Here is another tip, nuts are most nutritious when eaten raw. You can search this site for other benefits of eating raw foods.

Nuts like almonds and fruit make a good alkaline breakfast.

For those who are into proper food combining, eat the fruit first and give it a few minutes before eating the nuts.

Why not start your day out with a good dose of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and protein?

Some of my favorite nutritious nuts and seeds:

  • Almonds (best alkaline)
  • Cashews
  • Walnuts (acidic, go easy)
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Brazil nuts

For a great alkaline tea, that helps with weight loss and detoxification, check out Iaso tea. I drink it myself.

    An alkaline diet can be very trciky and confusing until you get on track. Salad is always a good idea for this diet. Try to find dark leafy greens to add to your salad rather than iceburg lettuce. Iceburg lettuce does not have as high of a nutrient content. Furthermore, try some fresh fruit with your salad or as a snack. Fruits are a great choice for a high alkaline diet, as they are high in fiber. Fiber rich foods will help with your constipation.In order to keep acid levels down in vegetables, be sure to not overcook them. High alkaline foods are better when eaten raw or steamed. If you overcook the food, it could turn acidy. Next suggestion is to limit you amount of sugar and flour. This includes avoiding or limiting breads, pastas, rice, bread, and noodles. Also it is a good idea to avoid dairy products when possible. Dairy products can cause extra acid in the body. Finally, it is important to avoid sugary drinks such as soda. When possible drink water or a healthy green tea. Good luck with the new diet.
