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

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.
