Green smoothies. You read about, see them blended up on YouTube, and recipes are in the magazine you pick up and thumb through. Vibrant, leafy veggies, just waiting for you to go to Whole Foods and pulverize them up into bright green super drinks. Do you drink it AND enjoy it? Some do... I get that. I've made some yummy slime colored smoothies before. However, generally speaking, greens grant a bitterness that most people do not indulge in with a milk-like lingering green on the upper lip, smiling with each sip. So, what to do? How do we find the elixir of life? Let's explore that, with these newfound drinks that I have braved (and ingested)!
Read on, for the 'put a stop to aging elixirs' (just kidding- but, at the very least, they may add a skip to your step & antioxidants to your cells)! Please read on...
Elixirs of Life & Wellness:
Republic of Tea's, Beautifying Botanicals: Supports the health of skin, hair and nails with botanicals of pea flower, lavender, hibiscus, rosehip, bamboo, schizandra berry, lemon balm, blackberry, and more! www.republicoftea.com/beautifying-botanicals-daily-beauty-herbal-tea
Brain Boost Green Tea: If you need a cognitive kick, this tea will help supercharge your brain! I drink a cup in the afternoons for an extra zip to break the mid-day lull. https://bit.ly/2Ud10BB
Dr. Axe's Multi Collagen Protein Beauty Within: Contains a mega 9 grams of protein and 0 grams of carbs! This blend encourages a healthy gut, skin and joints. It supports skin elasticity and hydration, as well as healthy aging by repairing skin. Also features Collagen type I, II, III, V and X. I have this for breakfast or a post-workout refuel. https://bit.ly/2kWZg34
Vive's Organic Shots: I have tasted the Immunity Boost & wellness Rescue shots. All I can say is "Wowie zowie!" They are potent little buggers, packed with spicey antioxidants. Oh, I can also say this: My husband said it is now a rule that I have to brush my teeth after one of those shots. https://vive-organic.com/
Four Sigmatic's Reishi Mushroom Elixir: It contains 1,500 mg of reishi mushroom. You can drink this straight or add it to another beverage. Reishi has been shown to support the body’s sleep cycles as well as support occasional stress. I also really like the Mushroom Mocha Mix with Chaga! https://us.foursigmatic.com/
Kicking Horse Coffee, Grizzly Claw: I had to add on one straight coffee for all the java lovers. This brew is organic, it's dark, and it's decadent! If you need an electrifying start to drive your dreams for the day, this will kick you into high gear! https://amzn.to/2pE83t4 https://www.kickinghorsecoffee.com
I know lemon water in the morning is a popular cleansing, health beverage of choice. You got one better than that? Name it! :-)
