“I DON’T BELIEVE IN SHAKES”…. This week I had someone tell me she didn’t believe in shakes because “They’re nothing you can’t get through a balanced diet.” The idea behind this statement is logical. Someone CAN attempt to get all the daily nutrients they need through eating superfoods, leafy greens, berries, and making sure their levels of dietary fiber and micronutrients are on point. While it may be logical, it’s usually not PRACTICAL.
Even the healthiest people I know struggle to get it all of the “good stuff” in. Let’s say you’re eating healthy grains and plant-sourced foods for breakfast, a salad for lunch, more veggies for dinner and more legumes and healthy proteins, I’ll venture to guess there’s something you left out. #fitover40mom
I don’t drink shakes because I have a poor diet (I actually eat a VERY healthy plant-based diet 90% of the time). I drink them because for me, it’s impossible to get the nutrients I WANT to include in my diet without it. I know about the benefits of things like chia seed, flax, moringa, chaga, and maca. I want to include them in my diet and quite simply, superfood shakes are the easiest way to do it.
So, if you think your diet is providing you with optimum health and nutrients… that’s great! But, if you feel the way I do about diet and nutrition, “good enough” isn’t good enough. I don’t want to just be healthy, I want to thrive. And, there’s always room for improvement.
Cheers to your health! #fitover40mom#superfoodshake#optimumhealth#holistichealth#holisticnutrition#holistichealthcoach#fuelyourbody#moringa#chaga#chiaseeds#flaxseeds#blueberries#spinach
