Beet & Berry Smoothie Recipe

Welcome to this post: Beet & Berry Smoothie Recipe.

This smoothie is awesomely hearty and perfect before a run or workout. A fellow instagrammer shared with me that to ultra-marathoners, beet juice is “nature’s gatorade.” How cool is that!? So I thought, add some delicious mixed frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) and voila!

What makes this smoothie special is its antioxidant & trace mineral content. Berries are known for their natural antioxidant capacity, while beets (in the root vegetable family contain nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a powerhouse ingredients for active folks & athletes alike. This plant compound ramps up blood flow in the body; thus promoting circulation, increased performance and oxygen delivery to muscles. In addition, the nitric oxide in beets helps enhance recovery from strenuous workouts.

Beet & Berry Smoothie Recipe

In addition to the unique characteristic of berries & beets, this smoothie is easy to digest. Thus, it’s not energy expensive for your body for assimilate & utilize the carbohydrates found in this smoothie. Also, it’s inexpensive to make! Most grocery stores will have all of the ingredients to make.

Smoothie Ingredients

*exact measurements are not important

-3 or 4 beets chopped up (use the greens too)

-1 handful of frozen mixed berries (fresh are better if you have them, but frozen adds a nice chill to the smoothie, so no ice is needed)

-Splash of almond milk (coconut, cashew or hemp works, too)

-Splash of water

There you have some “natural gatorade”! Enjoy! (doesn’t hurt that it has a pretty color to it, also!)

Never Hungover Hangover Prevention Drink

About Never Hungover:

“NEVER HUNGOVER is an innovative and exciting hangover prevention drink that is set to revolutionize the category of beverages that claim to prevent or cure hangovers. NEVER HUNGOVER is a great tasting dietary supplement that is comprised of a natural vitamin blend, antioxidants, amino acids, nutrients, and minerals. It’s formula helps neutralize and process the toxins caused by alcohol in the liver and kidneys (known as acetaldehyde’s), by turning them into acetic acid which is flushed out of the body, thus drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. NEVER HUNGOVER is produced in America, and has zero carbs, calories, or sugars. It is also caffeine and gluten free.

NEVER HUNGOVER can be consumed as a shot or a mixer. The product is designed to take up to an hour before or while consuming alcohol. For optimal results, take one bottle of NEVER HUNGOVER per four drinks. Party Tonight and Feel Great Tomorrow only with Never Hungover.

Ingredients:

As we mention on our product page, the Never Hungover formula helps neutralizes and processes the toxins that are caused by alcohol in the liver and kidney’s known as acetaldehyde by turning them into acetic acid. Then, the acid is flushed out of the body drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. But what exactly do the specific natural ingredients of Never Hungover contribute to the success of the product? Let’s get into a few of the amazing ingredients of our natural formula…

Obviously, buying all these ingredients separately would cost you a fortune and carrying them around with you might require a new set of luggage. Never Hungover combines all of these amazing hangover preventing ingredients along with several other natural supplements into a great tasting lemon-lime drink that is available in a 2oz travel size bottle or 750ml bottle perfect for your home. The benefits of ingredients of Never Hungover don’t just stop at preventing your hangover, but don’t just take it from us, try it yourself!”

My Thoughts:

A a health enthusiast, I would say that drinking alcohol is acceptable at times but only in moderation. I personally save it for special occasions and such. You can even get your hands on organic wines or liquors that will help minimize the toxin overload that alcohol provides the body with. That said, on those occasions a product like this can come in handy to prevent having to pay for a fun night the next morning.

I like that the ingredients are naturally based, though they’re not organic.

In regards to effectiveness, I found these shots to be effective in preventing a headache the morning after drinking a few glasses of wine. Though the shots are recommended for every 4 drinks, I drink seldom, so two glasses of wine were sufficient for me to feel satisfied.

Back in college when I consumed more alcohol, I could have used a product like this. Again, while I don’t recommend drinking heavily, I see these Never Hungover shots as a healthier compliment to your fun night out that will make the morning brighter and more bearable.

Dr. Bronner’s Organic Shikakai Hair Rinse Review

Welcome to this post: Dr. Bronner’s Organic Shikakai Hair Rinse Review.

Dr. Bronner’s Magic “All-In-One” Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse

Contains: Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Orange Oil

Description: Organic Shikakai [“Shee-kah-kye”] powder comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia Concinna, and is widely used in India for soft shiny hair. Organic lemon juice, used traditionally in the west, rinses and tightens hair shafts for excellent manageability. Organic coconut, olive and hemp fatty acids moisturize for luxuriant hair.

This stuff truly is magical! So pure and so nourishing, it is one of the best hair products I’ve ever bought. I have long hair that gets easily tangled amidst my active lifestyle and workouts. This rinse makes everything better–no more tangles–soft nourished hair with a lovely fresh and citrusy scent. Dr. Bronner’s suggests diluting it because it is very rich–but I just use a little in the palm of my hand and it is just enough. Remember to apply starting at the ends of your hair to avoid getting your roots too oily. For extra moisturizing, use this in combination with a conditioner (Aubrey Organics makes my favorite conditioners).

Purchase & Work Cited: I’ve used the descriptions on the Dr. Bronner’s website to help me convey the quality of their products on this blog. This can be purchased on the Dr. Bronner’s website (http://www.drbronner.com), and is also found in some specialty health food stores. Call ahead to see if your local place carries it!

Originally from Jupiter, Florida, I am a fitness & nutrition enthusiast and recent college graduate majoring in Sport & Fitness Management. I’m a former Rutgers Volleyball player and now an avid runner. As an athlete, I’ve always had a burning desire to reach my maximum potential physically. This drove me to learn about the most beneficial things to put into my body. Along the way, I’ve discovered that what you put onto your body (cleansers, shampoos, soaps, conditioners, etc) also impacts overall health. Once I became more aware of what I put into my body, there was no turning back. A lot of habits were immediately out the window because I could not knowingly keep doing that damage to my body (i.e. drinking sodas, eating lots of empty calories with no nutritional value, consuming all kinds of preservatives in packaged foods). This was the spark that started this mission I’m on: to run on organic fuel. Along the way, I enjoy helping others learn what I have, which will ultimately help us all to become healthier individuals.I love and enjoy all things organic, health conscious, and blissful! Run On Organic!
