8 Wellness Essentials You'll Want to Take Everywhere

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Apr 25, 2019 7:28:08 AM

Enjoying a little quality time in the great outdoors: the best. Enjoying a little quality time in the great outdoors with a setup that’s just a bit more…dare-we-say…comfortable: even better! As cold winter storms fade from memory and sunshine fills the cloudless skies, the urge to those nature-filled getaways naturally intensifies. Anything from a spur-of-the-moment camping trip or divinely upgraded “glamping” excursion to the cleanly coordinated group outing is pretty fantastic, because let’s face it: nature’s beauty combined with a touch of luxury makes for an incredibly rejuvenating event all around. Read on for the eight essentials to pack to ensure you maximize your next travel experience.

Smart Snacks
Snacking and traveling go hand-in-hand, but don’t let the often-ubiquitous chips and cookies get the best of you! Bring lots of superfood snacks to keep you feeling full and satisfied, which can range from bags of fresh berries or seaweed crisps to superfood trail mix. For an extra convenient and superbly delicious snack that can conquer cravings, try Navitas Organics Power Snacks – especially the Chocolate Cacao flavor that’s packed with essential minerals and tastes like a brownie!

Mood Lighting
Sure, a roaring fire is always mesmerizing, but a few extra lights around your getaway locale can go a long way to make the darker hours feel extra magical. If the environment permits, bring a few citronella candles to adorn your dinner table, which help ward away pesky bugs while also setting the mood. And don’t forget to bring a strand or two of string lights to drape around your sleeping quarters, which can help to brighten and enliven your evenings.

Treasure Bag
New environments have a way of invigorating your creativity while discovering the local natural treasures. Bring an eco-friendly sealable bag to stash some of your foraging finds, such as native souvenirs, seasonal flowers, medicinal herbs to craft into bundles or a handful of special stones.

Mug-Ready Drinks
A travel mug is usually priority on even the most basic checklist, but that doesn’t mean you need to fill it with a boring beverage! Navitas Organics Superfood Lattes are the game-changing packets of superfood goodness you’ve been looking for that are as easy to make as they are to pack. Just a little hot water is all it takes to enjoy a creamy Matcha Latte, an elevated Turmeric Latte, or a comforting Cacao Latte (think: a healthy hot cocoa!). From crisp mornings to cozy nights, lattes are a definitive traveler’s go-to.

A Great Moisturizer
The extra downtime that work-free travel affords you means a little bit of external self-care should be part of your non-busy agenda. If you have easy access to a fresh water supply, a fully biodegradable face mask is a relaxing thing to enjoy. At minimum, bring a natural moisturizer to pamper your skin a bit, while the rest of your body and mind get a refresh, thanks to your beautiful setting.

Your Paper of Choice
Getting out of your everyday routine and into nature while exploring new places or trying new experiences should (hopefully) motivate you to minimize your interaction with the digital world. Take this time to turn your focus to tangible items that invigorate your headspace! Bring the book you’ve been meaning to finish, crack open your journal to document your experiences and thoughts or try getting creative with drawing or coloring. Your mind will appreciate this welcome stimulus!

Ready-to-Drink Shots
Yes, I am suggesting you do shots on your trip, but probably not the kind you’re thinking! I’m referring to Navitas’ Superfood Shots, which are concentrated sips of powerful superfoods combined with 20 mg of hemp CBD that are easily transportable and straight-to-the-point in terms of nutrition. In most cases, it’s unlikely you’ll be spending time making an overly fresh and healthy meal while on vacay, so let Superfood Shots take care of some of your nutrition needs quickly and easily, ensuring you feel great your whole trip. For an extra dose of rest and relaxation, try magnesium-rich Calm or if you need a little pick-me-up without the unsettling jitters, give Matcha-infused Focus a shot!

Soft Stuff
While traveling offers its own luxuries – depending on where you escape to – rugged camping is all about “roughing it.” Either way, a sentimental reminder of home in the form of your favorite blanket, pillow or towel are all fair game for adding that extra layer of total comfort. Cozy up and take advantage of the quiet by setting up a healthy picnic, practicing some light yoga, reading a book or even just napping – it may seem bulky to pack, but once you’re settled in, you won’t regret bringing it with you.

Here's the #RealDeal on Inflammation

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Apr 11, 2019 7:45:10 AM

Blotchy skin. Back pain. Brain fog. Seasonal allergies. As different as they may all seem, these undesirable symptoms are often due to the same root cause: inflammation.

Inflammation itself isn’t evil. In fact, inflammation is not only an unavoidable part of life – in many ways, it’s very useful and your body actually depends on it. When you get sick or injured, your body uses inflammation as a healing response – a kind of protective measure you may experience as localized redness, swelling, heat (or fever), stiffness and pain – by sending more nourishment and immune-boosting activity to the area in need of healing. This kind of inflammation is temporary and a critical part of your body’s ability to regain a healthy homeostasis. But increasingly, many of us are experiencing a different form of inflammation: chronic inflammation.

Dangers of Chronic Inflammation
Chronic inflammation isn’t just that headache you get while fighting off a cold or the swelling on your knee after bumping into a table. Rather, it’s the headaches you seem to get many days out of the month or the way your knee causes you to wince as you jump rope or walk down a flight of stairs. Chronic inflammation is a kind of continued fight response – one where your body attacks its own tissues. As briefly mentioned, this condition is often the root cause of a host of health problems, including autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory bowel disease. In some cases, low-level whole-body inflammation may occur, which may be less perceivable on a day-to-day basis initially, but over time, may tax your body into a state of very serious age-related disease, including neurological disorders like Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s, as well as cardiovascular disorders and cancer. Needless to say, neither chronic inflammation nor whole-body inflammation is considered a healthy level of inflammation. So, how do you know if you’re at risk?

Common Causes
Unfortunately, more and more individuals are experiencing this detrimental potency of inflammation. There are many factors that contribute to these elevated levels, including environmental toxins, stress, lifestyle factors such as smoking and excess alcohol, as well as genetics. The good news is, these inflammation issues don’t happen overnight, and are largely preventable and even potentially reversible. In fact, adjusting your dietary choices alone can make an immense difference on your inflammation levels overall and improve how you feel.

Protective Practices
Eating foods that are lower on the inflammatory scale can be helpful as a day-to-day protective practice. These kinds of foods include vegetables like greens, roots and tubers as well as lower-sugar fruits like berries. Healthy fats are also extremely important (especially omega 3s and monounsaturated fats), so foods like nuts, seeds, avocados and olives are great choices. Leaning on unprocessed, plant-based proteins is often recommended as well.

What’s more, some foods are not only lower on the inflammatory scale, they’re actually anti-inflammatory or capable of reducing excess inflammation in your body. Many antioxidants contain this property, so seek out antioxidant-rich superfoods like Goldenberries, Turmeric, blueberries, Cacao and Chia. Anti-inflammation properties are also a big part of what makes CBD (cannabinoids) so powerful. CBD has been shown to be an effective element of pain treatment and appears to reduce unnecessary inflammatory actions in immune cells. By combining these CBD compounds with other anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as Goji or Matcha, Navitas Superfood Shots can be an especially powerful tool in helping you lower inflammation as part of a balanced diet.

Remember, an anti-inflammatory diet doesn’t have to just be warding of disease, it can also be a delicious, energizing and enjoyable one as well! Still not convinced a plant-based diet is beneficial? Click here for a deeper dive into the ways it helps your mind, body (and the planet!)

3 Ways to Start Your Day Without Sugar

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Mar 19, 2019 7:57:11 AM

From packaged cereals to doughnuts to toast covered in jam, traditional breakfast foods are notoriously packed with sugar. Some people think a sugar rush in the morning is just what they need to feel energized and ready for the day. But, eating loads of sugar for breakfast can actually slow you down and set you up for bad habits all day long.

Many people crave sugar in the morning because they have low blood sugar levels when they first wake up (this is especially true among adults with diabetes). Morning sugar cravings are also the result of not getting quality sleep the night before or simply because you’ve established a routine over time of eating sugary breakfast foods. However, eating these sweet foods day after day, and particularly right after waking up, can lead to some pretty dire health consequences. Numerous research studies have linked excess sugar in the diet to health concerns such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, increased risk of heart attack, lackluster skin and weight gain...just to name a few! Sugary foods also have some addictive properties, which means you are more likely to crave even more sweet snacks throughout the day if you start your day off with sugar.

But, fear not! There are plenty of low-sugar alternatives you can add to your morning menu, and with a little planning, ensure your breakfast meals are as healthy as they are delicious. Here are three easy ways to start your day without sugar:

1. Veggie Scrambles
There are so many amazing savory breakfast options that cut sugar out of your morning routine entirely. Veggie scrambles are high among them: tasty, filling, quick and easy to make, these one-pan dishes nix the sugar and can help you tackle your daily requirement of vegetables to start your day on the very best note.

Scrambles often have a protein-rich base of eggs, but you can also use crumbled tofu for a fully plant-based version. Just stir-fry a mixture of onions, peppers, mushrooms, spinach or any other veggies you love, add eggs or tofu, and finish off with any seasonings you're craving until cooked through. Top it all off with added superfoods to give your veggie scramble extra flavor and health benefits using versatile varieties such as Hemp Seeds, Chia Seeds and even low-sugar Goji Berries.Vanilla

2. Toast with the Most
Long gone are the days when toast is boring, dull and tasteless. Today’s toast creations feature lots of healthy and delicious toppings that fuel your body with nutrients and protein instead of sugar.

Toast is also an excellent place to get your daily dose of healthy fats with sliced or mashed avocado, coconut oil, olive oil or nut butters. Add some sliced tomatoes, shaved radishes or marinated mushrooms if you'd like, too. And of course, toast is also a wonderful opportunity to start your day with superfoods: try textural and aesthetically pleasing toppings like seeds, nuts, sprouts and spices.

3. Low-Sugar Smoothies
Low-sugar smoothies in the morning are perfect on days you’re rushed or just want something satisfyingly sweet to take on-the-go. In fact, you can make your morning smoothies savory or sweet using Navitas Organics Protein & Greens Essential Blend. This comprehensive plant-based protein powder has a whopping 20 grams of protein per serving and also packs in antioxidant- and mineral-rich superfoods with no sugar (the same applies to the Vanilla and Cacao varieties in case you’re wondering). The Daily Superfood Boosts are also free of added sugars and work great with a smoothie base of sweet potatoes, avocado or even low-sugar fruits like strawberries and blueberries.

With all these amazingly delicious flavors and effortless health benefits, you’re not likely to miss sugar a bit with your new-and-improved breakfast routine! Need more ideas for healthy, low-sugar or sugar-free #SuperStarts? Head to our Recipe Library for all the goods.

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.

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!
