Consistency is Key. It’s a cliché that’s much over-used, but these are words that I live by.
Consistency is the core of our success in all that we do.
Whether it’s goals, wellness, physical or spiritual goals, fueling our minds and bodies with consistent messaging and nourishment is essential.
However, over the years I have found that consistency is the main challenge for many of my clients.
We tend to go in waves when it comes to nutrition: a quinoa veggie bowl for lunch and kale salads for dinner every day is recipe for a burn out.
The key is to find ways to seamlessly incorporate nutrient-rich food and drink into our already-existing habits, those daily behaviors that we’re not likely to change – nor want to change – like our how-we-like-it coffee or that after-dinner sweet treat.
That’s where products like protein and superfood powders come in for me! There’s nothing magical about these powders, nothing we can’t get from real food, except that they’re incredibly convenient, concentrated sources of these powerfully good-for-you nutrients.
Take Amazing Grass’s Protein & Kale plant protein blend, for example.
A single one-scoop serving gives us 20 grams of vegan protein –what we would get from three ounces of lean meat – and it squeezes in more fiber than we would get in a bowl of oatmeal, too. What really sets it apart though is that we’re getting the equivalent of one cup of leafy greens – like kale – in every scoop!
People aren’t wearing “Kale” tee shirts just for fun! It’s worth the hype. Kale tops the list of superfoods, and for good reason: It has the highest total antioxidant content of all leafy greens out there. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, K and folate, and it’s an excellent source of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are powerful antioxidants that support the health of our eyes. Study after study has shown that compounds in kale are protective against certain types of cancer. #passmekaleplease.
Amazing Grass’s Protein & Kale plant protein blend makes it easier than ever to *consistently* get nutrients like kale into our diet, along with this hefty dose of plant protein. Make your coffee work for you by adding a scoop to coffee with almond milk to make a protein- and veggie-rich iced coffee, or blend with ice for a protein-rich frappe. Mix a scoop or two with cocoa powder for chocolate truffles (check out our Chocolate Cayenne Protein Bites below) and indulge without the guilt.
The bottom line: Fueling our bodies well doesn’t have to be hard. It can be deliciously nutritious and dare I say, convenient. The key is finding nutrient-dense foods and drinks that we love and will consistently want to incorporate into our daily lives.
