Your pH balance is inextricably tied to one factor – your choices. Everything hinges on this balance including your health, longevity, and even propensity for disease. Easy ways to make better choices every day include:

  • Choose white meat, seafood, or a meat substitute over red meat.

  • Rather than rolls or fries, choose yeast-free bread or wild rice.

  • Rather than cow’s milk, drink soy or almond milk.

  • Create meals around vegetables, rather than meat or starches.

  • Exchange alcoholic beverages for sparkling water.

  • Fill your plate with plant foods first, leaving little room for acid-forming options.

  • Choose veggies with dip or grilled fruit over prepackaged snacks.

  • Cook with cold-pressed olive oil, not saturated fats or butter.

  • Avoid hidden acids by requesting dressings, condiments, and sauces on the side.

  • Choose a 30-minute walk over a 30-minute TV sitcom.

  • Reduce stress. Take up meditation, yoga, or some other relaxing method to restore peace.
