Food groups behave differently in the body – some provide energy (carbohydrates), whilst others are the very rebuilding and repairing blocks of our bodies and brains (proteins) – and yet others feed our neurological systems, regulate our hormones, and protect us against damage and disease (essential fats). How these foods behave in the body is broken down into two classes – acid and alkaline. Our bodies function best when in an overall alkaline state, pH7.365 and yet much of our current eating trends and diets are very acid-forming in the body, leading to internal stress on the digestive and other systems.
Our bodies do amazing things with food – it’s our fuel, so why feed it with something that doesn’t make it perform at its optimum? Here at HH we want to show you how to feel at your best all the time without compromising on taste and all those treats.
