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.

The One Small Act That Can Help You Crush Your 2019 #Goals

Posted by Kate Harveston, Author of So Well, So Woman on Jan 17, 2019 7:53:06 AM

We've all heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Instinctively, most people understand eating something healthy at the beginning of the day can help them feel strong and energized. Unfortunately, many people still fill up on sugary cereals or skip breakfast altogether. Though it may be tempting to ditch a traditional breakfast and pick up coffee on the way to work, poor choices could be holding you back from your best potential.
No, but really, it’s true! Making a healthy breakfast takes more effort than skipping your morning meal, but the effort pays off by keeping you full, boosting your energy and providing multiple health benefits. Let's look at why breakfast matters and how you can create meals to make your whole day better.

Why I Make Every Meal a Moment

Posted by Erin Parekh on Sep 27, 2018 8:08:46 AM

I’m a firm believer in getting the most nutritional bang for your buck when it comes to making food choices. It’s one of the reasons I love superfoods so much!

I also believe in making every meal a moment. And it’s a key component in how I coach my clients — understanding that how we eat is just as important as what we eat. Because having a green smoothie and kale salad everyday is great, but not when we’re gulping them down in the car or at our desk in front of a pile of unanswered emails.

Digestion is a complex process that functions best when we’re calm and relaxed — when we take a few deep breaths, look at our food, smell it and truly taste each bite. If we’re stressed, anxious and distracted, we’re not allowing our body to properly break down our meal — which not only leads to less nutrient absorption, but also increased digestive distress, gas and bloating. Not fun!

So, how do I personally make mealtime more mindful? Here are a few insights and ideas to get you started:

Breakfast: My morning coffee ritual is non-negotiable. I’ll get up earlier if I have to — just to sit and be with my thoughts (no phone!) for five minutes while I sip from my favorite mug. If I’m having a smoothie later, I always make sure to CHEW it. So often we gulp them down and end up with a stomachache because we didn’t take the time to prime our digestion and let it know food was coming.

Lunch: When it’s time to break out my salad, I take a few deep breaths and close my laptop first. Without the distractions, you’ll be surprised and how much chewing it actually takes to break down those raw, fibrous veggies. For clients, I’ll tell them to set a timer and consciously take 10 minutes from first bite to last bite.

Dinner: Growing up, my mom was always adamant about the "no TV at dinner" rule, and now I uphold the policy in my own home. My husband and I also say a simple grace as a way to pause and reflect on the day — to shift the momentum, slow down and reconnect with both each other and our food.

It took me a while to put these practices consistently into place. My advice is to be kind to yourself and pick one meal each day as a starting point. Turn off your phone, computer and TV for a good five minutes. Then pause, take a few deep breaths, be thankful for the nourishing food you’re about to eat and chew — putting your fork down between bites helps. Try it out, then head over to @erinparekh_ and message me how you felt afterwards or share in comments below.

The Power of Micro-Goal Setting

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Sep 25, 2018 7:48:39 AM

Goals are powerful tools that keep us focused, motivated and constantly evolving. It's human nature to set and chase goals. However, sometimes goals can also feel daunting, intimidating, overwhelming and even downright stressful. That’s why I’m a big believer in dreaming big and acting small – a self-improvement strategy called micro-goal setting that can apply to pretty much every aspect of life!

Micro-goal setting involves creating small, manageable goals that are steps in the right direction for achieving your large, long-term goals. What I love about micro-goals is that they are tangible, specific, task-oriented and totally achievable. They make sure you stay on point, move you forward and are surprisingly motivating. You can think of micro-goal setting like training to run a marathon. If this was your goal but you had never run a day in your life, you wouldn’t wake up one day, lace up your running shoes and pound the pavement for 26.2 miles. Instead, you would start by setting smaller goals, such as jogging one mile, then two, then perhaps signing up for a 5K race, and you'd slowly ramp up to your ultimate goal of being a marathon runner. The secret to long-distance running has nothing to do with setting out to run a large distance, and everything to do with how capable you are at compartmentalizing small achievements that add up to a great feat.

But you certainly don’t have to be a runner to put this strategy to work. Micro-goals can apply to so many aspects of life, especially in the health and wellness realm. Beyond just balancing weight, you can set micro-goals to get stronger, become more flexible, achieve better sleep, have more energy, be more positive or just live better. And when it comes to eating and nutrition, micro-goals have everything to do with helping you make small changes that really add up over time.

Life gets busy and without going so far as to hire a personal nutritionist, most of us simply don’t have time for extensive meal planning and ingredient research. I’ve found that one of the easiest ways to start achieving micro-goals in your diet is to simply start introducing more superfoods into daily meals. Since superfoods are such powerful nutrient-dense foods, you really get the most benefits from every bite. So, by simply adding superfoods like Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Goji Berries and Turmeric to the foods you already eat, you’ve just accomplished the healthy micro-goal number one of eating better that you can feel proud about! This can pave the way to other micro-goals, such as reducing sugar, making sure you're consuming more fiber or eating as “clean” as possible.

If eating healthier, improving your overall wellness and living a more natural life are some big goals of yours, then consider setting an easy micro-goal of having a superfood smoothie each day. Navitas Organics Essential Superfood Blends help ensure that you’re getting a wide spectrum of nutrition with minimal effort and no guesswork. And for other big goals that you’ve set for yourself, keep reading for some micro examples that you can focus on to get one step closer to those big ones. Even the tiniest accomplishments will fuel you with the momentum you need to achieve what you want and become the best version of yourself!
