Love Your Body With These Healthy Superfoods ~
Spirulina, an algae packed with B vitamins, iron, and potassium, boosts your immune system and brightens your skin! Spirulina is easy to add to any of your Tone It Up smoothies and all you need is 1 tsp. a day to feel the perks! It also makes your smoothies the most beautiful color ~ perfect for that Insta shot! 😉 We're obsessed with the Emerald Spriulina Smoothie Bowl from your TIU App!
Cacao gives love to your heart, mood, blood pressure, hair, and nails, along with SO many other body-loving benefits. This superfood is also an amazing source of iron, which helps to strengthen your immune system and boost your energy. We sprinkle cacao nibs on smoothies and top ’em on chia seed pudding, and we use cacao powder in so many delicious chocolatey desserts like our Chocolate Beet Muffins!
Hemp seeds are a complete plant-based protein with all the essential amino acids you need to refuel post-workout. Adding just 1-2 Tbsp. of these little seeds to your meals will help your digestion, balance your hormones, and majorly boost your metabolism! We love them in smoothie bowls or sprinkled on top of a salad for a delicious crunch like in your Chopped Superfood Cobb Salad! They have a slightly nutty, satisfying flavor you’re going to love!
Flax seeds are an amazing source of protein and fiber! These superstars add a boost of heart-healthy, beautifying omega-3 fatty acids along with a mix of magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. We love adding 1 Tbsp. to our smoothies. Try flax seeds in the delicious Peanut Butter Coconut Overnight Oats!
This Beet & Cauliflower Soup is one of our faves from your Meal Plans! Beets have so many heart-healthy and brain-boosting benefits that can’t be beat 😉 Beets contain anti-inflammatory properties and are a great source of Vitamin C and fiber, which help improve digestion.
Pink Himalayan Salt
Your new post-workout secret weapon: pink Himalayan salt! Since it’s mined from ancient sea beds, you’ll receive all the muscle-recovery benefits of this mineral-loaded salt without toxins or anything unnatural. Pink Himalayan salt provides your body with essential nutrients and replenishing electrolytes. When you complete a tough workout, your body releases those electrolytes through sweat. Post-workout, we suggest adding a pinch of pink Himalayan salt to an 8 oz. glass of water to replenish the cells in your body. Plus, it’ll help restore your body’s pH levels, making this an excellent detoxifying sip.
