The alkaline diet is not just about the foods we eat, but also the drinks we consume too! Alkaline drink is just as important as alkaline food. In fact, the downfall of many healthy lifestyle plans (and the alkaline diet is a lifestyle, not a diet despite the misleading title 😉 ) is the fact that many people focus so much on their food, that they forget the drinks and end up undoing all of their hard work by drinking fruit juice, cordial, diet soda, tea, coffee etc.
So I’ll reiterate – what you drink on the alkaline lifestyle is just as important as what you eat.
What is the Most Alkaline Drink on Earth?
There are a few contenders! And my advice, up-front, would be to incorporate all of them into your lifestyle!
Alkaline, Ionized Water
First up is the alkaline, ionized water that I’ve been blogging on lately. This water is fantastic. Ionized water is highly alkaline, antioxidant rich, super-hydrating and filtered. When you use an ionizer you can set the pH of the water at the perfect pH 9.5 and alkalise your system all day every day! It’s great, you get alkaline, ionized water on tap!
There is heaps I can say about alkaline, ionized water, but I’ve blogged a lot of this already recently and here are some of the best bits:
Green Drinks (powdered)
Green powders/green drinks are a combination of powdered alkaline vegetables, sprouts, alkaline fruits and other ingredients. They contain ingredients such as wheatgrass, barley grass, spinach, broccoli, celery, cucumber, kale, avocado and more! You use these powders by simply adding a teaspoon (around 3g) to approximately 500mls of water, mix it up and drink it!
It’s as simple as that!
They are a great way to ensure that you’re getting your baseline of alkaline nutrition every day, and I personally drink about 2-3 litres of greens every day. And believe me, I know it when I don’t do this. I can definitely feel the difference.
Green Drinks (fresh juice)
Drinking a fresh green vegetable juice every day will change your life. If you don’t own a juicer – get one! I love to make fresh vegetable juices and I have one pretty much every morning before I leave the house and it leaves me feeling totally energised and vibrant. It is really easy to do, you just have to juice anything and everything that is green in your fridge!
So which is the most alkaline drink on Earth?
Heh – it’s a combination! My favourite, most alkaline drink is a fresh green vegetable juice, diluted down with alkaline, ionized water and with a scoop of green drink added!
When I have this in the morning, I know my day is going to be a winner!
Stay hydrated, and alkaline
