New to Smoothies? Here’s How to Make Your Blend a Balanced Meal

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Feb 20, 2019 7:41:04 AM

Smoothies are used for all kinds of reasons: as a way to eat more healthy foods, as support for an athletic endeavor, as an answer to “I literally have only five minutes for breakfast” and so much more. But, if you’re not in the routine of making your own blends, making a balanced smoothie may seem a little ambiguous. After all, we’re saturated with photos of smoothies in every color, featuring every flavor and full of all kinds of healthy (and sometimes not-so-healthy) add-ins. So, what makes a good smoothie so “good?”

The easiest way to create healthy and delicious equilibrium in your blender is to keep a simplified nutrient checklist. Here are the general ingredient guidelines to make sure you’re getting the most out of every blend:

Checklist Item 1: Fruits
Packed with vitamins and dietary fiber, alluring fruits make an ideal base for smoothies. While bananas are a tried-and-true favorite due to their sweet neutral flavor and creamy texture, almost every fruit under the sun can be a part of your smoothie lineup, including mangoes, berries, pears, pineapple and melons, among others. You can use fresh or frozen fruit, just aim to keep the overall quantity in check. One to two servings of fruit (like a banana plus a handful of blueberries, for example) is usually an ideal amount for most people.

Checklist Item 2: Vegetables
We all know we should eat more vegetables and smoothies are the ultimate “sneaky” way to up your daily quota without even tasting a difference! Not all vegetables work well in the context of your blend, but some, like cauliflower, broccoli, bell peppers and leafy greens like spinach and kale can be added seamlessly. If “adding a salad” seems too inconvenient, you can also lean on vegetable powders – a concentrated and usually more mildly flavored version of fresh veggies. A few particularly versatile varieties include beet powder, Wheatgrass Powder and kale powder. What’s more, these powders are not nearly as perishable as fresh produce (lasting months in the pantry), while containing all the same nutrition.

Checklist Item 3: Protein
Protein is the satiating macro-nutrient you crave in a balanced meal and smoothies are no stranger to the benefits of its contribution. Adding protein to smoothies ensures you obtain the valuable amino acids your body needs, while keeping you fuller, longer. As you can imagine, many sources of protein you might enjoy on a plate won’t work in a smoothie, which is why most smoothies rely on protein powders (and occasionally nuts and seeds, too). You can choose multi-functional superfood varieties of protein powders like Navitas Organics Essential Superfood Blends, which cover several items on your checklist with every uber-healthy scoop.

Checklist Item 4: Fat
The one element most people forget while making a smoothie is fat. Adding a little bit of healthy, plant-based fat such as Chia Seeds, Cashews or avocado helps to balance both the flavor and texture of your smoothie, while also providing long-term satiation. You don’t need much – just a spoonful or two of your favorite fat-rich ingredients will do the trick.

Checklist Item 5: Functional Boost
Let’s face it: smoothies are the perfect opportunity for you to fine-tune your health via nutrition. Looking to boost your immune system? Aiming for glowing skin? Seeking faster recovery after a workout? Superfoods are at your service! If you’re unsure of how to use certain superfoods, smoothies are the perfect place to start. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around the benefits of individual superfood ingredients, try a superfood powder containing multiple superfoods like the Navitas Organics Daily Superfood Boosts. You don’t have to add every superfood under the sun to every blend you make, but adding one or even a few of your favorites is a carpe diem move every time.

Checklist Item 6: Hydration
If you’re struggling to meet the eight-glasses-of-water-a-day hydration demands of your body, let smoothies assist you! You’ll need to add some kind of liquid to help the blender mix all your ingredients together, so make it a healthy choice with a plant-based milk, coconut water, a small splash of juice or even just plain water.

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Feb 11, 2019 8:10:35 AM

Thanks to the conveniences of modern life, many of us have our Valentine’s Day routine down to a science (i.e. flower delivery, a box of chocolate, a card, etc.), but that’s not necessarily a good thing. While any gift is always appreciated, romantic gestures are really at their best when they’re unique – which is why a surprising number of people are returning to the power of handmade.

The rich expression of time spent and personal touch go far beyond anything money can buy – and few things are simpler to create and more appreciated than home-crafted edible treats. Plus, by adding functional superfoods, you can even specifically formulate your giftable goodies to support feelings of love and attraction. Talk about a win-win!

Here are the Top 3 Superfoods for All-Day Energy

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Jan 22, 2019 7:51:58 AM

When you ask most people what they wish they had more of throughout the day, one of the leading responses is always energy. Lots of things in life zap our energy, including stress, poor nutrition, not getting enough exercise and chronic health conditions – all of which affect daily wellness. However, one of the best (and easiest) ways to feel full-of-life from morning to night is to add superfoods to your diet, which boost your nutrition without a hassle or major commitment.

All superfoods will enhance how you feel in some way, but some really help you go the extra mile…or at least feel like you could! So, if you’re looking to feel a bit more energetic, here are the three superfoods to consider including more of in your diet.

1. Matcha
If you’re looking for a healthier and more nutrient-rich alternative to coffee, look no further than Matcha. This superfood is a finely ground powder made from high-quality green tea leaves that's packed with a delicate tea-like flavor and high nutrient density. In fact, just one cup of Matcha has the antioxidant and nutritional content of about 10 full glasses of regular green tea!

Matcha is a top pick for energy because it contains both caffeine and L-theanine to provide your body with calm energy and focus. The caffeine content of Matcha is minimal (only 16 mg per serving), which is just enough to get you going in the morning without making you jittery. Meanwhile, the L-theanine balances your body out by helping you remain calm and enhancing your concentration and memory. Warm up this winter with a Matcha Latte, and enjoy the cool-calm energy of Matcha all day.

2. Cacao
Cacao is another wonderful energy-boosting food, primarily because of its high theobromine content. Researchers have found that theobromine is associated with energy increases, while also decreasing the risk of high blood pressure. When combined with safe amounts of caffeine, such as that contained in Matcha, theobromine has also shown great promise in supplying the body with long-lasting energy during exercise.

This powerful superfood comes in many forms, including Cacao Powder, Cacao Nibs and even Cacao Butter – all of which have a rich chocolate taste with no added sugar. Energize your mind, body and spirit with a Cacao-rich Chocolate Cinnamon Latte in the morning or a bowl of Nutty Chocolate Oats to warm you up and help you feel satisfyingly full all morning long.

3. Maca
If you can only add one superfood to your regular diet for more energy, you may want to make it Maca. Maca is an amazing adaptogen that helps you fight stress – an important feature considering stress is one of the biggest causes of energy loss throughout the day. Also called Peruvian ginseng, Maca supports your body’s natural resilience and boosts the function of your endocrine system, making this ingredient the perfect food for an energizing breakfast.
Navitas’ easy-to-digest Maca Powder comes from finely milled whole Maca root that has been slow-dried at low temperatures. It can be added to pancake batter, cereals, nut butters and yogurt to give your favorite meals a superfood punch. Other fun ways to incorporate more Maca into your days is to embrace the smoothie trend and whip up an energizing Pitaya Maca Smoothie Bowl or a Crazy Monkey Smoothie for breakfast or as a quick pick-me-up snack.

5 Superfood Trends You Need to Know in 2019

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Jan 8, 2019 8:14:58 AM

If you're currently using superfoods, you're already in the know of some of the best wellness tricks of the trade. Here's what to look for in the upcoming year and how to make the most out of your healthy efforts.

Simplification with Specialty Blends
Long gone is the dubious time where learning about which superfoods to use – and in what perfect combination – meant locking yourself up in the library with mountain-sized stacks of research books. These days, there's a vast amount of scientific exploration on how various individual nutrients (and the superfoods that contain them) can work together in harmony to produce a greater whole effect…and this summation has been realized in a variety of easy-to-use products. For example, every serving of Navitas Organics Protein & Greens Essential Superfood Blend offers 20 grams of plant-based protein, the healthy benefits of green vegetables, antioxidant-rich superfoods and even probiotics to help you digest everything. It's no wonder they're on the rise: specialty blends make eating healthier simpler than ever with a one-and-done approach to nutrition that's immensely attractive for those with busy lifestyles.

Prioritizing a Happy Gut
As it turns out, your stomach does far more than serve as just a biological fuel tank, alerting you of “empty” or “full” status. Your gut, and specifically the microbiome (which is like the inner environment of your gut), is of increasing interest to many health professionals as a key element of whole-body health, affecting everything from your immunity prowess to your energy to your mood. Furthermore, a healthy microbiome is key to properly absorb and utilize all other foods and nutrients you consume, and without a healthy gut balance, your healthy efforts literally go to waste. That's why you'll often see prebiotics, probiotics, enzymes, as well as fiber – all core components of a happy gut – included in so many Navitas products, such as the Daily Superfood Detox Boost or the Vanilla & Greens Essential Superfood Blend.

Choosing the “Quality Matters” Credo
Marketing can be pretty savvy at times, and while superfoods have become more popular, it's sometimes the uses of these ingredients that have not always been so credible. Often scribbled onto packages of products with high amounts of sugar, additives or other highly processed ingredients, some superfood products certainly don't offer the kind of health benefits most of us would hope for. But consumers are wising up, and there's a significant uptick in truly conscious products that are clean from start to finish and packed with functional foods every step of the way. Of course, Navitas has been a “quality matters” company since day one, which is why you'll find that every ingredient is always 100 percent organic, minimally processed and rigorously reviewed for quality – and without added sugars, fillers or artificial additives, of course!

Food for Thought
Newly emerging is a class of superfoods and healthy ingredients that can actually help improve the performance of your mind. As mindfulness, meditation, productivity, mood and mental health continue to be a more widely discussed point of overall health, new foods are rising to the surface that can help the process of enhancing these cognitive points of interest, too. While many superfoods are considered in the “best-of-class” of brain foods already (such as Acai and Chia), Navitas Organics' Daily Superfood Focus Boost is rapidly becoming a fan favorite for helping build a better mind and enjoying a more optimum state.

Going Beyond Smoothies
If you love superfoods, chances are you're a fan of smoothies, too. And why not? Smoothies are undeniably once of the easiest and healthiest ways to incorporate so many of our most choice power ingredients. But with superfood's rise of popularity, we're also seeing an increase in culinary creativity, and it's safe to say superfoods are no longer just reserved for the blender. The New Year promises an influx in this trend, taking superfoods to new, delicious heights. Look out for irresistible superfood items you can make and buy like bars, lattes, soups, salads, dressings, dips and desserts. We have a feeling superfood cuisine is just getting started!
