Starting up my new Organic Bunny store has been so much fun, however, my body and overall fitness frequency has taken a serious back seat to it all. That, in combination with wedding planning, home renovations and just life in general really has me in need of a serious health revamp which is why I am going to start posting more healthy recipes to keep myself accountable and hopefully inspire others to do the same! Sometimes we can’t do it all, and that’s ok, but it doesn’t mean that at any point we can’t simply choose to hit the reset button so that’s exactly what I am going to do starting now!
This morning, I really did not want to go on a run but, I forced myself to while the dogs still slept. I woke up, made myself a clean pre-workout drink using the Rootz Nutrition Paleo Energizing Superfood and off I went. The key to making changes is to flat out just start them, it’s really the only option! Just get up, put the workout clothes and force yourself out the door 🙂 I love using this pre-workout drink also because it really does give me a serious boost of clean energy, made with only natural forms of caffeine like Yerba Matte, Asian Ginseng, Matcha Green Tea and more! Simply mix this with water, add a little ice for tastiness and within 30 minutes you will feel a powerful boost of energy for an amazing workout, without the crash.
After my workout, I then forced myself to drink a protein shake. One thing I do not get enough of is protein, and for fat loss and muscle building, clean forms of protein are essential. Rootz Nutrition also makes a Chocolate Banana Nut protein powder so I will share exactly how I made mine today, below! I also happened to have a pre-made Organic Almond Milk from Project Juice which is so handy in situations like this as they make them in-house, free of any additives like xanthan gum or carrageenan, found in even Organic milks and then deliver them for FREE right to your door.
Chocolate Banana Protein Shake-
- 1 Scoop of Rootz Chocolate Banana protein powder
- 1 Project Juice Almond Mylk
- Additional handful of Kale. Powder does contain Kale but I add more.
- Half a banana for creaminess.
- 1 cup of ice for iciness.
- That’s it! Blend and enjoy!
You can pretty much add anything you want to the above, or nothing at all if you wanted. The powder alone has so many healthy things for you, you really do not need to add a thing unless you choose to.
