I looooove a really good smoothie and often find myself making one when I'm in need of healthy nutrients in a hurry, want breakfast to take on-the-go, or when I want a quick snack in the afternoon! I created this delicious Orange Creamsicle Power Smoothie and added extra superpowers to it with some great supplements that I found at Whole Foods!
Now's an awesome time to stock up on supplements at Whole Foods, as they're having a HUGE sale, where you can save 25% off of ALL supplements from January 6-8th! If any supplement is on sale beforehand, it will be an additional 25% off the sale price as well. Talk about getting some killer deals!
I purchase the majority of my supplements from Whole Foods, including protein powders, maca powder, flax seed, chia seeds, and herbal supplements, so I know I'll be majorly stocking up this week!
I specifically created this Orange Creamsicle Power Smoothie so that you could have a quick breakfast or snack on-the-go, which is not only delicious but also loaded with a good dose of protein, superfoods and healthy fats, which will leave you feeling great! I used a really tasty plant-based, grain-free protein powder from Garden of Life, which is full of amazing superfoods, such as flax, chia seeds, raw enzymes and even raw probiotics! I love finding a great protein powder (like the one I used in the image below) that packs a punch with nutrients and isn't loaded with any junk.
I also added Sunfood Superfoods Raw Organic Maca powder to this Orange Creamsicle Smoothie, which I've been using for years and LOVE! Maca can help to balance hormones, as well as improve energy, memory and mood. Maca has been an amazing addition to my life and I highly recommend checking it out for yourself!
Supplements have become a super hot topic lately, and with good reason. So, where do supplements fit into your life? I believe that's totally up to you! While I don't personally believe that you can out-supplement a poor diet and lifestyle, I do believe that they can be a really great boost to an already healthy lifestyle, which is exactly how I use them.
I love experimenting with supplements to see how they make me feel, as we're all unique, so what makes me feel my best may be different from what makes you feel your best. I've taken all sorts of herbal supplements over the years and most recently took Ashwaganda as I was healing my adrenals, and I personally noticed really great benefits from it!
There are so many supplements to choose from at Whole Foods, and here are a few more of my absolute favorites!
Bulletproof Collagen Peptides – I've been using collagen for years and have personally noticed what a huge difference that it makes in my gut health, along with healing to create super strong nails and hair!
Garden of Life Organic Golden Flax Seed & Chia Seed – I've been adding this to my shakes and smoothies for years and love it! Flax seed is great for healthy skin and hair, digestive health, and so much more! Chia seeds are great for digestive health, heart health, and they can also boost your energy and metabolism!
Nutiva Hemp Protein – if you're looking for a plant-based protein with just one single ingredient, this would be it! I love the delicious, slightly nutty flavor of hemp protein. Hemp has been shown to improve heart health, decrease the risk of Osteoporosis, help to cleanse the colon and reduce sugar cravings!
If you're feeling overwhelmed with the amazing selection of supplements at Whole Foods, talk to one of the Whole Body representatives, as they're super knowlegable and can help guide you in the right direction.
