For many women, maintaining a certain weight on an alkaline vegan diet, can sometimes be difficult. Lately, as I've started coaching more men, I'm finding that most of them have the opposite problem.....They would like to tone up, bulk up and GAIN weight, rather than lose, but they want to do it the healthy way..... and that's where I come in at!
Many body building websites, have recipes and products full of acidic ingredients that will definitely help you to bulk up, but at what cost to your organs?
When we consume toxic ingredients like artificial sugars, artificial colors, whey protein and tons of other additives and chemicals, it puts a lot of strain on our liver, since our liver is the main organ that filters out toxins in our bodies. The ingredients are also usually highly acidic, so it also puts pressure on our kidneys to neutralize the acids.
However, you don't have to stress your liver and kidneys to develop your desired muscle mass, because I have come up with a muscle building smoothie recipe, that is completely alkaline and will help you to bulk up in little to no time! I usually drink this smoothie 2-3 times a week after I hit the weights.
Below are the ingredients, as well as the benefits. Feel free to make other equivalent alkaline substitutions, per the Dr. Sebi Nutritional Guide and the accompanying image below, to add more variety to this smoothie!
