Oxidative stress and chronic acidosis have been common terms for a long time that everyone has probably heard often. In other words: it is an impaired acid-base balance, which can have unpleasant to serious consequences for our health. In addition to emotional stress, environmental pollution and e-smog, diet naturally plays a fundamental role in this context. Because many of the foods we eat regularly are acid-forming. This means that they are converted into acids by the organism after being metabolized. The problem is that when these foods make up the majority of our diet, our bodies become acidic.

Fortunately, there is a lot that can be done about this. For example, you could change your eating habits, try an alkaline breakfast, or even switch to an alkaline diet for a while. In the following lines you will find some important tips for this as well as a few delicious and very healthy breakfast ideas.

Alkaline breakfast – start the day full of energy

Whether or not you have to have breakfast at all. is a hotly contested issue. Nutrition experts and scientists still argue about it and try to find the right answer to this question through various studies and investigations. For example, the thesis of a British biochemist named Terence Kealey is completely new.

He claims through his own experience that breakfast is the new smoking. That you shouldn’t have breakfast under any circumstances. On the other hand, we all know the old adage: “One should have breakfast like an emperor.” Now what is the truth now? Perhaps, as is so often the case, it is somewhere in the middle. On the one hand, you should literally listen to your own gut feeling and if you feel fit and healthy without breakfast, simply skip it.

Perhaps it would be even better to include an alkaline breakfast in your own daily menu. In this way you can contribute a lot to your optimal acid-base balance and promote your own health. And what does it include above all? All fresh fruits and vegetables, herbal tea, oatmeal, chia seeds, almonds, almond milk, almond yogurt, tiger nuts, coconut blossom sugar, agave syrup, dates and flax seeds are some of the most popular and valuable ingredients in an alkaline breakfast. You can use it to prepare lots of freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, Buddha bowls, porridge and puddings and make your breakfast as varied as possible. In addition, extremities are never recommended in the long term.

You can therefore replace an alkaline breakfast with an excess of alkaline over time. This does not mean that you only eat basic foods, but also that you consume some acidic foods.
