Rich Raw Cacao Milkshake for you & your Valentine!

 Raw Cacao Milkshake

I’m going to tell you something because no one else will. You deserve a milkshake. You deserve a milkshake that isn’t going to send you onto a blood sugar roller coaster and mess with your healthy flora. You deserve this milkshake. A perfect treat on a hot day when you want a nourishing clean energy boost.

Raw cacao is beneficial in so many ways. Not only does it contain phenylethylamine which helps boost happy hormones, it’s also loaded with magnesium. A large percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium but it’s important for healthy digestion and a relaxed nervous system, so drink up!

 

Ingredients

Mocha Mint Shake Serves 1

1 cup coconut milk

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

½ teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 frozen banana

1 tablespoon of raw honey or stevia

 

Directions

Add all the ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth.

When you’re gut health is off kilter it’s important not to overload your body with sugar. That’s where recipes like these come in. You can’t just flip a switch and never want a milkshake again, so it becomes about creating healthy substitutions to unhealthy foods.

Sugar feeds bad bacteria and candida in your gut and promotes digestive distress and hormonal issues. The more you can swap it out for healthy recipes like this the faster you’ll be on track to feeling amazingly energized and balanced.

4 New Year's Resolutions


It's the beginning of 2017, and you’ve probably thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions. Am I right?

 

So many people commit to huge New Year’s resolutions that are nearly impossible to achieve. Then, they end up not reaching their goals. One suggestion I have for you is to make your New Year’s resolution ACHIEVABLE this year.

 

When you do achieve your goals, you will be so much healthier.

 

Here are four perfect resolutions that are totally achievable:

 

#1. Hydrate with more water

Did you notice when you drink more water you feel better? Water helps your body to run better and will even help you to lose weight. Water will help give you a beautiful, youthful glow too. Make sure that you don’t just chug it all at once. Grab a water bottle and keep it with you throughout the day. This will make it that much easier to achieve your goal, and it will be so beneficial for your entire body.

 

#2. Crowd out unhealthy foods

Unhealthy foods that are filled with sugar and toxins do our bodies no good. Instead of just eating because you have a sweet tooth craving or because something looks delicious, eat because you want to nourish your body. If you eat foods that will give you energy and help you to feel better, you’ll be on track for a healthier New Year. So, start 2017 by eating whole foods that nourish and benefit your body.

 

#3. Move more

Most people think of a New Year’s resolution as heading to the gym every morning. Although this is a great goal, it can sometimes be unachievable with your schedule. You do not need to head to the gym to move more. In fact, if you sit all day it's a very good idea to go for a walk on your lunch break, or stand up and move in between breaks. Make moving fun in 2017. You will feel so much better!

 

#4. Let go of negative thinking

Every person has thoughts that creep into their head. Sometimes we can become more judgmental and critical of others in our head, or even put ourselves down. In 2017 make it a goal of yours to stop the negative thinking. This will help you to be an overall happier person and will even help you to become healthier.

 

When you are thinking of your goals for 2017, I recommend that you start with an achievable goal that will really help you become a happier and healthier you!

 

I hope that these four suggestions help!
Christine
