This is a questions I get asked almost every day! We operate a Chiropractic Wellness Clinic so we offer Nutrition and Weight Loss counseling along with chiropractic care. I think nutrition is a very important part of our treatments.
So what do you Drink for energy? NOT energy drinks!
Here are a few suggestions:
is KEY! We drink a gallon or more of WATER every day. Sound like a
lot? A gallon is only 4 - 16 ounce bottles! A great way to jazz up
plain water is to add cucumbers and/or mint. My favorite addition to
plan water is lemon slices. As a special treat I make Basil Lemonade!
-GREENS from It Works!
**With 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables and a blend of 38 herbs and
nutrient-rich superfoods, Greens provides naturally occurring,
bioavailable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and
enzymes to give your already well-balanced diet a nutritional boost.**
-Stay away from high calorie, sugary "juice drinks." This can sabotage your weight-loss goals
chemical sweeteners and "calorie free" drinks like diet soda and
crystal light. The chemicals can cause your body to become toxic and
bloat. NOT a good idea!
So what DO you eat for energy? Here are my suggestions:
-Eat food natural fat foods like oils, nuts and seeds. These are a great source of Vitamin E
Try my HomeGrown Basil Walnut Pesto or Simple Pesto Pizza
-Potassium: (from Self)
It aids in muscle contraction and regulates fluid and mineral balance
when you sweat. Top potassium picks include a baked potato (926mg),
white beans (502mg per half cup), and tomato sauce (453mg per half cup)
Try my Smash White Bean Avocado Club
-Magnesium: It's essential for energy production and muscle function. Just three
ounces of halibut supplies 91mg. Don't eat fish? Choose a half
cup of All-Bran cereal (110mg), cooked spinach (78mg), or black beans
Try my Black Bean Burgers or Black Bean Tostadas with Texas Caviar
Energy-Boosting snack ideas include:
Organic yogurt with natural cereal (not frosted flakes)
Hummus with carrots or snap peas
1/2 banana and apples slices
Almonds or walnuts
Spinach salad with white beans, walnuts and Creamy Chipotle dressing
That's all for now!
