Fruity Breakfast for Active People

Fruity Breakfast for Active People

Overflowing deliciousness for active people 

 📌 Blend any greens of your choice ( I used chard) with  three medium carrots, two bananas, a scoop of plant-based protein, 2-3 tea-spons of cacao, a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds, two Brazil nuts (very high in Selenium, a mineral very important for healthy skin and nails) and top your creation with kiwi, apple slices, goji berries and mulberries, and a bit of raw (unsweetened) almond butter.

 I estimated this meal to come down to about 800 cal (134 g C, 20 g F, 35 g P) with 30 grams of fiber. It is rich in Zinc, Omega 3, Potassium, Vitamin A and C, Calcium and Iron.

To lower the calorie count in half, just skip the toppings and limit your fat intake to only one source (either the nuts or seeds or the almond butter).

About me:

I follow #intermittentfasting and tend to eat my first meal at noun so smoothie bowls are absolutely convenient because they are very easy to digest and can be packed with nutrition (and enough calories to sustain my busy schedule 😛).
P.s I am also into aromatherapy. Let me know if you are interested in what kind of essential oils do I use. 

 

Bit By Bit: Get Healthy with Beets

Bit By Bit: Get Healthy with Beets

I love beets because they are very grounding, satiating and rich in fiber and minerals as iron, magnesium and potassium. 

Add more beets into your diet and you would easily drop few inches as you would be staying fuller for longer and the beets would facilitate your liver to get rid of toxins and excessive water retention (the latter feels as weight gain, usually due to higher than recommended sodium intake).

 

My favorite combo with beets (for a smoothie) includes two small beets, one/to two tablespoons of chia seeds, a cup of berries, cacao powder, a scoop of any plantbased protein powder, greens, one small banana. You can top your creation with a serving of goji berries, cacao nibs and mulberries. I like adding a tablespoon of raw coconut flour for flavor and thickness (low in fat and actually quite high in protein).
