How To Detox & Give Your Body The Nutrition It Needs

How To Detox & Give Your Body The Nutrition It Needs

If you are anything like me then you want easy ways to get your nutrition.

I will confess … I like convenience (gasp!)

I am also one of those people that would rather have a smoothie over a meal.

Let’s be honest though, a majority of the things that are supposed to be good for you taste awful!

So I am pretty happy to share with you the ones that I DID find that are absolutely delicious & nutritious!

I have tried so many different health products over the years and that includes protein powders and let me tell you, I disliked most of them! They all seemed to have that telltale chalky protein powder taste.

This past year I have had a lucky streak in finding some really tasty ones. Protein powders that honestly feel like you are drinking a sinful Milkshake!

 

1. Ideal Shape has so many scrumptious flavors! And there are still a number of them I want to try. Out of all of my recommendations, this is the one that has the most flavor choices. I counted 15 different flavors! I have tasted 3 of the flavors Chocolate Peanut Butter (think Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups) Cookies & Cream (tastes just like an Oreo Blizzard) and Salted Caramel. All 3 were so good that I really couldn’t even pick a favorite! I love that you can buy bundles to save money and the next flavors I want to try are Eggnog, Orange Cream, and Chocolate Coconut. Mmmmmm…. They also carry some other tasty looking products that are good for you.

#2 Magnum Quattro –  I tried the same 3 flavors and they were equally as delicious! I purchased mine at Popeye’s along with some greens which I will talk about later.

Out of all the Protein powders, I have tried this one has the highest protein content at 30g of Protein per serving.

MAGNUM QUATTRO™ IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR A PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT BECAUSE
High Quality Ingredients
It has only Isolate proteins (the highest quality and form of protein – supporting digestion, absorption, and results)*
It has 4 different sources of Isolate protein for timed digestion*
It has added CLA and Flaxseed for essential fatty acids and protein assimilation*
There is more protein per scoop than almost any product available today*
It will support sustained energy throughout the day**
It will aid in achieving leaner, denser muscles*
It supports an increase in your metabolic rate*

#3 Organifi – It truly is the Best Tasting Plant Based Complete Protein Drinks! All of the products from Organifi are chock full of good for you ingredients that also benefit your health in others ways. For example, the protein powder contains digestive enzymes, MCT’s & Minerals. It is also Gluten Free, Non-GMO. Soy Free, Dairy Free & Vegan.

It comes in 2nd for protein content at 20g but I feel that the other added ingredients give it an edge.  I LOVE that their products combine so many beneficial ingredients into one product.

#4 – Quest Protein – This protein weighs in at 20g of protein and is Gluten & Soy Free. I had picked up 3 sample packs at Popeyes and got Vanilla, Chocolate & Cinnamon Crunch. Again all 3 were delish but the Cinnamon Crunch reminded me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and was one of the favorites with my family!.

#5 – Cor-Performance Whey – My son purchased this brand and I gave it a taste test. I tried the Strawberry Milkshake and it reminded me of Strawberry Nesquick. It has 24 grams of protein, is Gluten Free and contains 5.25 g of naturally occurring BCAA’s.  This protein powder is made more for bodybuilders and was purchased from bodybuilders.com.

When it comes to detoxing I am a huge advocate of juicing, juicing powders & greens. Much like the protein powder though, finding one that I could tolerate was difficult (most were way too bitter).

The ones that I do recommend and taste good even just with water are  Progressive VegeGreens  and all of the juice powders from Organifi.

I have tried all of the flavors from Progressive and my favorite hands down is the Pineapple Coconut. It was our go-to for several months. I would mix either with orange juice or in a smoothie.

Organifi has 2 amazing juicing powders that can be used alone or together.

Both are chock full of good for you ingredients, including adaptogens (these help your body adapt to stress). While I won’t go into listing the ingredients and their benefits, they are too numerous to mention. You can read all about it on their website.  In all honesty so far in my search, Organifi carries the best all-around products. I used to buy a lot of these ingredients at the local health store and let me tell you it was really starting to add up and I didn’t even have them all!

I love that I can have them all in one convenient powder. The adaptogens are really important to me as they are known to decrease anxiety, along with the detoxing properties. Another benefit of these nutritious powders is that they give increased natural energy. They taste great mixed just with water but even better in a juice or smoothie.

Self Improvement – Do You Have What You Need To Succeed ?

To say that this past year has been a year of great growth, would be a bit of an understatement!

Launching several online business ventures while coping with Fibromyalgia & Anxiety has been a great learning and growth experience for me.

So what is it exactly that has changed? That in itself is a bit of a loaded question.

I was struggling is so many areas of my life … my health was rapidly on the decline, I was in pain, stressed and feeling so overwhelmed with trying to find time to do everything that I wanted to do. Basically, I was spending way too much time and energy on the negative aspects of my life rather than focusing on the good and this was the first place I needed to make a change.

]My mindset was the first thing that needed to change and I spent and still spend a lot of time making sure that I take the time that I deserve on myself.

What do I mean by that? Well, I had to learn to allow myself to take care of “me” and realize that I deserved it just as much as anyone else. The law of attraction is a very powerful thing.

I watched videos from Motivational Speakers, listened to meditation programs and Binaural Beats. 

I have found that I thrive on continuous learning! 

I am constantly taking new courses to further my skill set & knowledge base, which also allows me to expand on the ways I am able to help others.
 A couple of places I highly recommend are MindValley Academy & Udemy.

Both sites have courses taught by the best in their fields!

Two of my favorite Female powerhouses are Marissa Peer & Christie Marie Sheldon and they both have a FREE course available.  I recommend starting with these and then moving forward with some of the paid options.

Udemy has such a vast selection of courses from Personal Development, Life Coaching, FinancesMeditation, Mindfulness & so much more.

So much valuable knowledge at your fingertips.

I also learned so much about health, wellness & nutrition, which we will talk about in another post. I have learned to focus on living a balanced and purposeful life and have really been working on decluttering, budgeting, credit repair and becoming self-sufficient.

How To Get The Law of Attraction To Work For You

Do you want to know how to get theMindvalley (US & CA)” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Law of Attraction is? Or how powerful it is when applied daily?

If you have been following me for some time, you know that I have Fibromyalgia. A chronic illness and that just a few short years ago I was in a pretty dark place.

I was Chronically ill, which caused me to lose my job. And with all the health issues I had , also caused severe anxiety and depression.I had to find a way out of this spiraling mess , find a way to make myself feel better (even on those days when I wasn’t feeling so good). An acquaintance of mine had started talking to me about the the Secret (based on the book ) . I was instantly mesmerized and intrigued! I then found my way to Tony Robbins, I had watched I am not your Guru on Netflix and it hit so close to home for me . It had made me cry and made me realize a number of things about myself , my life and what I needed to do if I wanted it to change.

“The Shift”

I began scouring the internet for information. It wasn’t until I came across a couple of courses that things really started to change for me. The first being that the terrible anxiety that I suffered from started to fade and I started to feel better about myself and my abilities. No Chronic Illness was going to hold me back! As I went through these courses I felt myself starting to shift .. my vision became clearer. I became much more empathetic and just started feeling gratitude for all that I did have and stopped focusing on what I didn’t or the things that I lacked.

The thing about the 

You need to focus first on changing your mindset

 Marissa Peer is also known world wide for her abilities in getting the Law of Attraction to work.

 

I had learned how to My life is now one of Gratitude and Excitement for all the things that have happened and the things that are about to happen!

I had gone from being a anxiety ridden , depressed woman with a Chronic Illness to a Successful Blogger & Marketer. ( I have also Blogged for the Huffington Post!) My Social Media following grew in leaps and bounds almost overnight it seemed. And I am presented with new opportunities on a daily basis. I began to connect with all of the right people with the information that I needed and truly began to Blossom.

Reading is a big part of Growing and I highly Recommend reading these Books:

Healing with the Angels by Doreen Virtue ( I also bought myself a deck of her cards)

Awaken the Giant Within – Tony Robbins

Think & Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
