Greetings you awesome human, and a very Happy Wednesday! How is your day rolling? My goal is to not fall asleep as I am writing this very blog post. No, no; it has nothing to do with being bored BUT everything to do with being so flipping tired. I know I made mention about this the other day but, anymore, I would be extremely content to curl up in bed before it is even 2:00 pm. Yes, like so incredibly tired everything is an effort. Fortunately/unfortunately, I am in full hair and makeup so I am going to have to keep this train rolling for now. Actually, this is a perfect segway since maybe I need a healthy dose of superfoods to keep my energy high, sleep better, and stress levels to a minimum.
In case you missed it, last night on the “Shop Lit Live” app, I did a series on smoothies and mocktails. FYI: it is FREE to download the app and you can hang with me every Tuesday night, 7:00 pm EST, and shop the very products that I am touting. One of the product lines that I talked about was Navitas Organic; a term that relates to “energy,” Navitas focuses on “sourcing the most ethically grown, powerfully nutritious plant-based superfoods to give you the energy you need to thrive.” They have, basically, packed all the necessary superfoods you need into an amazing supplemental powder.
What exactly are the benefits of Superfoods?
- Assist with digestion
- Support your immune system
- Decrease stress
- Increase endurance
- Promote longevity
- Clear skin
While there are a multitude of various products you should check out, here are the 3 that I chatted about:
- Superfood & Berry Blend
- Cacao Powder
- Coffee Cacao Power Snacks
Let’s start with the Superfood & Berry Blend! This powder is made up of 3 ingredients and only has 2 grams of sugar. These include Acai (powerful Omega’s and antioxidants), Goji Berries (a Chinese Medicine favorite to promote longevity), and Blueberries (packed full of polyphenols; also known as antioxidants).
Here is the smoothie I made (ah hem, okay it was taken right off the package):
- 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (I used oat milk)
- 1 medium frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 1/2 tsp. Superfood & Berry Blend
Add ice, blend, and place in a pretty glass! Oh, and more importantly, get ready to experience all the amazing benefits! P.S. If you want to add some protein powder, go for it! Make it completely customizable for YOU!
Next up, Cacao Powder! Rich in antioxidants and flavanoids, this 100% cacao powder is wonderful for heart health, helps decrease blood pressure, and can help those who are insulin sensitive manage their glucose levels. I added this to a smoothie bowl and it was the perfect compliment!
- 1 cup non-dairy milk alternative (I used oat milk)
- 2 scoops plant based protein powder
- 1 tbsp. Cacao Powder
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp. nut butter
Although these are great to take on the run, these beauties are packed with cacao, coffee, dates and, wait for it, 10 amazing superfoods! I wanted to add an additional punch to my smoothie bowl.
Trust me, your body, and your taste buds, will thank you! Just in case, you can shop all of the items I used below!
Here’s to a fantastic mid-week nutrition check in! And you thought I would be talking about wine – ha!
