This morning before my workout, I decided to add a protein boost to my Green Smoothie. I love Sunwarrior because it is a raw, vegan source of easily absorbed protein (bonus: it doesn’t have a weird powder taste or consistency). The warrior blend has a complete amino acid profile and 17 grams of protein per scoop! I add it to my smoothies when I want to feel energized for a work-out, or have a more sustained feeling of fullness. I also like to add some powerful omega-3s to my smoothies with a scoop of ground flax seeds. Rich in lignan fiber, and essential fatty acids, flax seeds promote healthy digestion and fight inflammation!
Blend, Drink, and Feel POWERFUL!
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Warrior Blend
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 giant handful organic baby spinach
- 3/4 cup frozen organic mixed berries
- 1 dash cinnamon
- 1 cup filtered water (you can use more or less depending on your desired consistency)
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with nutrition. Growing up in a vegetarian household gave me the platform to explore different nutrition theories. I’m curious by nature so I ate information up faster than a bag of kale chips. In the past couple years, I’ve taken it a step further and become a health counselor. Health counseling has given me the knowledge and experience to help YOU take the guess work out of living a nourished life.
Nutrition and healthy living are my passion. Today, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with our busy lifestyle, the day-to-day hustle. I’m not only a health counselor, I’m a photographer, a writer, a comedienne, a fitness-lover, a traveler, a friend, a laundry-doer, you get the gist! My schedule is full and I like it that way. Unfortunately, a full schedule can make it tough at times to make the best choices for my health…or so I thought.
What I hope to accomplish with this blog is to share the very best information on how to live a clean, energized, glowing life with YOU. Soon, you will discover how easy it is to eat well, use natural products, and find the time to nourish yourself.
So, follow me for email updates or stop by when you’re feeling hungry for healthy inspiration.
