Is Oatmeal Acid Forming?


Who would have thunk it? Yes, your favorite winter breakfast, oatmeal, is contributing to that over acidic situation in your body! Not to worry, there are ways around this.

We talk to many folks at live events and Health Shows, many of these folks are doing their very best to eat healthy just like you. Though oatmeal and blueberries do have some benefits, these benefits are largely outweighed by the oatmeal's contribution to the acidosis condition created in the body. You can easily get the antioxidant benefits of blueberries from other real foods such as blackberries or our Olive Leaf powder.

Check out our Acid/ Alkaline Food List: This helps to give you a basic food list to start to make more alkalizing food choices.

All grains, like oatmeal, form an acidic residue in the body. That doesn't mean you have to give them up completely, but just be aware that if you want to continue to eat as you do, you will have to "on purpose" make sure you are getting excellent natural minerals like Suede Hills Alfalfa or  pH Happy Caps inside you to help escort that acid out.

It takes a mineral to escort out an acid. If you do not get enough minerals, your body stores that excess acidic residue in fat cells and in other ways, all of which create an acidic condition at the cellular level. If the cells aren't happy and alkaline, neither are you!

Remember that acidosis is the main cause of most if not all sickness and disease. This is because at the root we are talking about what is going on in your body at a cellular level.

Acidic cells = fat, sickness and disease
Alkaline cells = fit, ease,and rejuvenation

Dr. William Howard Hay, in 1933 wrote "The most fundamental cause of disease, i.e. the accumulation of excess acid in the body (latent acidosis), occurs when the body's intake and production of acid residue exceeds its ability to eliminate it. This occurs primarily as a result of unwise food choices, improper food combining and consumption of chemical food additives and drugs."

So here are a couple of options:

  • Reduce how many times per week you eat oatmeal, so instead of 5 days a week, try only 1 or 2 times.
  • Use other dark antioxidant-rich fruits like blackberries, black or red grapes or raisins instead blueberries most of the time.
  • Switch to a fabulous green shake like Phil's Ultimate Breakfast with a Schmunkie.

    Watch how to make this recipe:

  • Try a sliced apple that you dip into Almond butter instead for breakfast. You will be surprised at how long it will keep you satisfied!

We are so happy to be a part of your healthy living journey!

Keep up the great work!!


Health to You!!
