Don’t Stress on your Eating Plan
An important part of succeeding on any diet is the mindset. Think of it as fun way to introduce new ideas. The audio shares mindset tips for getting your brain to come happily along on the Paleo eating plan. And they apply to the Alkaline Diet as well.
Compassion towards others makes a big difference.
Eating is a social event and needs to be enjoyed on an emotional level. Eating out with friends or family should be an enjoyable event, not a stress festival.
When you are relaxed and smiling, your food digests better and is less acid forming in the body. Stress is the biggest cause of acidity in the body, even more so than dietary choices.
Gardening is a Great Way to Get Locally Grown Vegetables
Container gardens can be started, even in small spaces. When you get outside and play in the dirt it is very invigorating and good for you. Why not team up with a friend to start a little garden project. You can produce an a abundance of alkaline and Paleo friendly foods. A local community garden is another great idea.
Ask around at your local farmer’s market, or explore online to see if there are any gardening groups in your area.
