Are You an ALKALINE ACE
or an ACID-HOLIC?


Alkaline Diet Recipe: Baked Zucchini Chips with Cool Dill Dip

Printer Friendly Version


Many of us need a mid afternoon snack to power us through until dinner time, especially if we suffer from any signs of OVER-ACIDITY and blood sugar imbalance.

 

The alkaline lifestyle is not about deprivation, it’s about moderation. So the goal is to find snacks that balance your pH level AND taste delicious.

 

Once you begin getting off your acid and start cooking at home more frequently, you do not need to eliminate snacks. In our fast-paced society there will be days when there just isn’t going to be enough time to create an elaborate meal right when you are hungry.

 

Potato chips, sandwiches, granola bars, baked goods and all of those traditional types of snack foods just aren’t going to cut it for an alkaline diet.

 

Instead focus on these easy to prepare snack options like nuts, almonds, nut butter with celery, alkaline snack bars like chia bars, smoothies, juices, ready-to go salads, carrot sticks, hummus and veggies, and more.

 

Having these types of foods on hand will help you stay on track with your new way of eating.

 

These baked zucchini chips are a crave-worthy snack, but unlike potato chips, they won’t increase acidity levels in your body, nor will they create any belly fat.

 

Zucchini is believed to be an excellent anti-aging food. The anti-oxidants in it improve memory and reduce aging-related processes by up to 40%.

 

Zucchini contains more than 95% of water, which makes it one of the best foods for people on a diet. It is also a low calorie food with only 25 calories per 100gms, making it an appropriate food for those who aim to reduce their weight. Zucchini is also believed to be effective in increasing metabolism.

 

Zucchini is high in nutritional value and is considered a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A (due to its higher levels of carotenoids, such as beta carotene), alkaline minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper, fiber, folate, phosphorous, and riboflavin. It is also one of the best natural sources of manganese.

 

Eating healthy, nutritious snacks like this is going to give your body more energy, a better waist-line, and a greater ability to fight ACID!
