One of my top favorites is chocolate smoothie powerhouse. This smoothie is listed on my top five list. I will pick the recipe when I feel stressed or overwhelmed. You
When you feel that your immune system is low on energy you need protein boost. You may also try a superfood smoothie before or to get you up and running.
Start the day with healthy chocolate powerhouse
Listening to my body is vital and is what I do first. I don’t know about you, but I crave different foods and drinks depending on my mood, day time, fatigue and/or when I feel mentally exhausted.
I need to stay alert, feel alive, otherwise I can’t be productive and for me having a positive and healthy mindset is ultra important. Other smoothie I like to make is blueberry, cherry maca powder helps improve my daily productivity and stay alert almost all day.
Don’t have time? That is Nonsense.
You said I struggle to get up, etc I know the drill. Don’t let “I don’t have much time” thoughts fool you, or stop you getting healthy. Instead start the day by saying affirmation phrases like:
“I enjoy taking time to create or make important things for myself”. And my health is super important. My family and I, come first always. After that, everything else gets easier when I take care of me first. Yeah, be a bit selfish.
When I get stressed or irritated, it’s crucial that I can stay calm and grounded. Making healthy food, drinks or smoothies helps me turn things around.
For example, in the morning I do extensive exercise – my rituals. Got up, drank a glass of water and had a coffee with homemade banana and pecan cake. Then, start my Gigong for 40 minutes (Ba Duan Jin includes deep breathing ) to reinvigorate me. Then I start prepping my smoothie. It only takes me 3-4 minutes all together.
Which chocolate is healthy for you?
Dark chocolate is. It was used by the Mayas to help them start the day. Experts guessed that it is loaded with quality nutrients that will protect us and can improve our health. Studies shown that dark chocolate (not the mixed) is one of the reasons that people have less risk of heart disease.
Cacao is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet until this day.
