Alkaline or Acidic Body ?


Some of you may know about our bodies being too alkaline or too acidic. Simply put, a too acidic body means inflammation in our bodies which gives way to disease of every form.

Our bodies need to have a ph level of 7.365 – 7.4 to perform at peak levels and to be healthy. We should all strive to maintain that perfect balance by eating the right foods. If our bodies become too acidic by the foods we eat our body starts to work overtime to try to bring that balance back and gets inflamed leading to diseases such as frequent flu, IBS, heartburn, digestive issues, excema, joint pain, asthma, hormonal imbalances, depression low  energy, low libido, MS , migraines and yes CANCER.

Your body when acidic, goes to work to maintain that balance and neglects to heal or nourish the body when it needs it from infection and disease.

When our bodies are alkaline, it can actually spend time healing itself from disease and make us feel our best.

How can we find out what our PH balance is ? A simple pharmacy urine test ph strip can tell you what your levels are , also a blood test called C Reactive Protein can tell you how much inflammation you have in your body. There is a direct link between the foods we eat and the balance in our body

I found an excellent chart online that I wish to share with you, which explains all the food groups that are acidic or alkaline. You will find a PDF of it at the bottom. Print it , hang it on your fridge , have a copy while grocery shopping and learn it well, to live a full, healthy disease free life.

12 Mini Quiches by Zazacook

Twelve mini Quiche for a perfect dinner. I love Quiche, any Quiche with bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes or salmon, Quiche with spinach, zucchini or broccoli….. You can imagine your Quiche, filled with whatever you want… look in your fridge and make a Quiche with what you have.

I love Quiche, because it’s easy to make. You can create a variety of Quiche.

I chose to make mini Quiche with bacon and tomatoes. I have really good smoked bacon that my friend Irene made by herself. It is the best one that my husband and me ever ate.

I just prepared my french recipe with no pastry dough.



Servings : 12 mini Quiche

Preparation time : 20 mn    Cooking time : 35-40 mn

Ingredients :

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml (2 cups) milk
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup bacon, diced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • salt and pepper

Directions :

Preheat the oven to 400°F

Cut the cherry tomatoes and gently squeeze out as many seeds as possible.

Place the flour in a medium bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Add the milk slowly, salt (if the bacon is not too salted), pepper, shredded cheese and parmesan cheese.

In muffin pans, add tomatoes and bacon. Pour over the muffin pans the mixture eggs/flour/milk.

Bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot with a lettuce. Bon appétit :)

Some of us are used to doing performance reviews at work every year, so why not do it in our personal lives too? Taking the time, to change  our complex selves is not easy , but so worth it.

Use the attached chart to work on yourself and see where you stand. Click on the words “review You” below for work chart. Tell me how you did.
