Many people believe that diet plays a role in our health a great deal. Because my daughter is a registered dietician, RD, I hear about nutrition and lifestyles often. I have often thought of trying a whole-food-based diet. When we eat at home, and I am feeling good, I cook pretty healthy. We usually eat lean proteins, whole grains, and veggies. My downfall is fresh bread and baked goods, hehe. That and the weekend if we order food, etc.
Eating and cooking more at home helps me to know what is in my food. But, even condiments, like mayo, ketchup, etc., are not whole foods. That and any prepackaged food often has a list of 50 plus ingredients. These processed foods are not the greatest.
Have you tried a whole-food-based diet or any other diet to help with your PH? I know a few PHriends who are now vegetarian and/or vegan, and they swear that helps them feel better. What are your thoughts? Let’s talk about this?
