Happy New Year! Start the year off right with this fantastic energizing smoothie. There are two ways to get energized: stimulants and nourishments. Stimulants, like green tea or coffee, are an â€œinstant gratificationâ€ form of energy, offering needed energy fast, but rely on borrowing energy from the body rather than providing it. Nourishments, such as superfoods like maca or chia, work to balance the body's state of homeostasis, allowing us to perform at our best and feel energized long term.
In today's busy world, it's easy to see why both have their place, but a reliance on nourishment is always better! We featured this in our 60 second smoothie series originally in January 2012 - here's the video link: http://smoothment.navitasnaturals.com/newyears-smoothment-day-four/.
