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.

5 Superfood Valentines to Make Anyone’s Heart Melt

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 five superfood-infused treats to create at home, all in the name of love.

How We Use Business as a Force for Good and What it Means for You

As B Corp Month and the start of February kick off, we at Navitas thought this would be a great opportunity to discuss our commitment to a movement we wholeheartedly believe in and are proud to be a part of. In the words of Ghandi, we must all seek to “Be the Change that we wish to see in the world” – for if not, what hope is there for future generations? This is the inspiration to our commitment to B Corp.

Conventional business wisdom is often narrow in its focus on profit-driven outcomes, frequently leaving commitments to sustainability and longevity behind. But we believe that considering a long-term, sustainability-based vision of a company can create resiliency and loyalty, while also securing profits for the lifetime of the brand. Being a B Corp certified company is part of how we do this. Our hope is to change that short-sighted mentality by showing firsthand that strong values and a commitment to our stakeholders; customers, employees, partners, environment and society can be profitable and reformative.

So, what does B Corp mean? It means we’re held to standards by an unbiased, third-party entity (B Corp) that holds us accountable for our impacts on social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to balance our profit with our purpose. At Navitas Organics, that means our commitment to Fairtrade, our commitment to organic and non-GMO products, our partnerships with environmental organizations such as A Growing Culture, our commitments to healthy living and non-profits like Ceres Project and Conscious Kitchen, and last but not least, our amazing Wellness Program for our employees.

We’re in the midst of a cultural change that’s using business as a way to transform the economic engine. Consumers are the ones that play the most important role, as they hold the power to tip the scale and demand business and government accountability. Labels certifications like B Corp and so many others help consumers make the right decisions. “The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities and the environment.” As leaders in the superfood category, we want to make sure we’re using our business as a beacon for positive change and showing that corporate social responsibility can be achieved while making profits.

We were thrilled when we became B Corp certified two and a half years ago, but it was no easy walk in the park to get there. There were many challenges and lessons learned along the way to getting our assessment completed and approved, but looking back now, we can truly appreciate the level of detail and scrutiny involved in this process, because it helps create a level of transparency and authenticity that consumers and all shareholders can trust.
There’s so much energy out there surrounding this new model of business thinking and we’re inspired by the growing numbers of companies joining the movement. The future is bright and we’re so proud that we can take a hand in shaping a brighter tomorrow.

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.
