Lately, I have been working on living a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been going on walks at lunch trying to cut back on fried foods, and limiting my bread, red meat, and alcohol intake during the week.
I’ve also gotten back into firing up my blender and making my green meal replacement smoothies at least once a day.
I won’t lie green smoothies can be an acquired taste. For me, like most people they started off as mostly fruit with a handful of greens..spoiler alert fruit is a lot of carbs and sugar. Yes, healthy carbs and natural sugar but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Over time, I started to add less fruit and more greens to my smoothie allowing me to adapt my palate to the taste of blended kale.
I was contacted by Energy First President and CEO, Gerry Morton to try and review some of the products And jumped at the chance to review these products.
Before I jump into this delicious meal replacement smoothie I’ve been having for lunch. I want to talk about the awesome package I got from Energy First.
This was by far my favorite! Greenergy is a Gluten-free, Non-GMO, Vegan powder that provides you with vegetables, antioxidants, probiotics and digestive enzymes. One 30 calorie scoop equates to 5 servings of vegetables, 50% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C, 100% of the daily recommended Vitamin E and 8% of the recommended daily value of fiber. I love the taste. While I mix it in my smoothies, I’ve also enjoyed it blended into a glass of almond milk.
This stuff is yummy! I don’t always add it in my smoothies since it is a pre-fuel workout formula but it does help put a pep in my step.
Inflammation Blend with Curcumin
I’ve briefly discussed my issues with inflammation but it’s not something I talk a lot about. I often find myself dealing with back pain from not 1 but 2 car accidents (neither my fault.. in case you are wondering) and an old dance injury with my knee. I am always looking for ways to lessen the inflammation and pain that are the results of diet and even weather changes. This is has a lot of ingredients known for fighting inflammation so I love it’s results instead of popping pain meds all day.
I honestly think that besides the life changes I’ve been making Leanergy has helped me get my weight down 7 pounds over the last month! That being said. I would have to do an in-depth experiment over time and compare identical diet and meal habits
