Vitamin C to Combat Acidity Issues

Vitamin C might appear to be quite acid to the gut but it's quite the opposite. If you're experiencing acidity issues, foods which are rich in Vitamin C content are converted to form a more alkaline body amid the metabolic process.

Best choices include: watermelon, lemon, limes, pineapple and grapefruit. Dried fruits also make healthy choices and include: dried pineapple, dates and figs.

Vitamin C to Combat Illness & Boost Immunity

Vitamin C also works to heal issues with the mouth. And if you're experiencing acidity issues within the body, most likely your mouth is feeling the uncomfortable ill-effects.

You may have sores in the mouth or bumps beneath the tongue.

Your tongue may also appear inflamed or irritated and feel rough on top.

Add foods which are rich sources of Vitamin C can assist in getting your body back into balance. When the body is too acidic, a diet which avoids protein-rich foods, grains and dairy products - excluding sour dairy selections, may assist.

However, this restriction should only be for short-term as totally eliminating proteins, grains and dairy from the daily diet can serve to cause more health issues.

In addition, brushing with baking soda, rinsing with an antiseptic mouthwash - such as Oral B, as well as adding Biotene Oral Rinse for dry mouth to your dental care may assist in healing the mouth quicker.

Tropical Breakfast Menu Containing Foods Rich in Vitamin C

Protein Group

Ham & Pineapple Omelet: Use 2 egg whites, 1 yolk, 1/4 cup or 1 slice of lean deli ham and a few pineapple tidbits.

When the eggs are set on one side, flip and add the fruit and lean meat, then fold to make your omelet.

For the egg base, try to use black or white pepper rather than adding salt as ham tends to be mined with sodium.

You can also use a bit of milk in preparing the egg base of your breakfast omelet. The use of 2 whites will assist in keeping caloric values low.

Vegetable Group

Parsley, Broccoli, Bell Peppers, Onion, Mushrooms: These are just a few suggestions that you can use to add servings from the vegetable group to your breakfast. It's always challenging to get this group included in the first meal of the day.

We recommend at the veggies be sauteed before adding to the omelet as this enhances the flavors as the oils of the natural foods are released amid cooking.

When they are placed into the omelet without sautéing, they are exposed to minimal heat, thus it's challenging for the natural oils to be fully unleashed.

Dairy Group

Serving of Reduced Fat Milk: If you'd rather, you can skip the milk and add low fat cheese to your omelet instead. Or, enjoy a serving of light yogurt.

Grain Group

Whole Grain Bread: Opt for the 60 calorie or less breads when possible.

Fruit Group

Pineapple: We've already got this Food Group covered as we added it to the star of our meal.
