Such as simple dessert but so healthy and so good! Both raspberries and dark chocolate contain fiber, antioxidants and heart healthy properties. I recommend getting 65% or higher chocolate. The higher the percentage of your chocolate the more cacao bean retained and the less sugar or milk. The cacao beans are where all the nutritional benefits are!

Warmer weather means sipping some delicious fruit water! One of our favorite fruits to add to water is limes! Limes are a great source of vitamin C and also contains some calcium, iron and magnesium. The health benefits of limes include rejuvenation of the skin, may aid in digestion, and may help excrete uric acid from the body which can ease your arthritis. Enjoy some freshly squeezed lime on your tacos, guacamole or smoothie! #hgghealthtip #healthygrocerygirl #hggcommunity

๐Ÿƒ Food is Fuel! ๐Ÿƒ What we eat has a big impact on our energy levels throughout the day. It is important to get a balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat, as well as vitamins and minerals to properly power and nourish our bodies. A diet rich in real, whole, plant-based foods is best because plant-based foods are nutrient dense! Here are some of my go-to foods & tips to help manage & SUSTAIN energy levels!

FOODS THAT ENERGIZE
1. Lemon Water ๐Ÿ‹ Did you know a common sign of dehydration if feeling tired and on edge? Add fresh lemon juice to naturally flavor water & for vitamin C!
2. Oatmeal. This whole-grain contains soluble fiber that really sticks with you and provides long lasting energy. Choose rolled or steel cut oats and top with fruit, nuts, nut butter and cinnamon. It's my go-to breakfast when I'm heading into a work meeting, before a television segment or a speaking gig.
3. Spinach which has iron to support oxygen flow in the body ๐Ÿƒ I love adding spinach to my smoothies.
4. Fresh Fruit contains natural sugars as well as fiber to help sustain energy levels and feel full longer ๐Ÿ“

FOODS THAT DRAIN
1. Foods high in Added Sugar... you'll get a spike in energy levels, then a crash
2. Processed White Flour... white flour is essentially sugar once digested providing the body with the same energy spike and crash.
3. Soda & Caffeinated Drinks... caffeine definitely helps boost energy levels! However, it can also lead to a energy drop and can be dehydrating. Make sure to limit caffeine intake and stay hydrated with filtered water, herbal teas and water dense fruits and veggies!

In addition to increasing our intake of mostly real, whole foods to manage energy levels, lifestyle habits are also important. Sleep, exercise, fresh air plus stress reduction are all important for a healthy, energized lifestyle! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

No one wants to eat a sad salad. You know what I'm talking about... limp lettuce, dry carrot shreds... bleh. Now THIS, this is what a happy, good, delicious salad should look like!

There is no HGG Video this week... instead here's a photo of my lunch from a few weeks back I'm just now posting ha! Romaine lettuce, brown rice, kidney beans, olives, avocado beet & cabbage sauerkraut, sunflower seeds, hemp hearts and french dressing! I LOVE taco salad and coming up with fun variations of this meal. Sauerkraut is great for digestive health and this bowl is also loaded with fiber, healthy fats and protein to keep me feeling full.

The majority of our community are women. As women I believe we should support, encourage and show grace to one another. As mothers, wives, friends, business owners, working in the home and outside of the home and so much more... we wear a lot of hats and I like to think that we're all doing the best we can to love and care for our own body and health as well as the health and needs of our family. Treat others as you want to be treated and if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all are two life tips I love and believe make the world a kinder place. Nothing in particular happened to spur this post... I just wanted to put these good vibes out into the world today as reminder that YOU are doing an amazing job. We are often way too hard on ourself and others and can get caught up worrying or judging others over the smallest things. DO YOU today and always and give others the grace to do life their way too.
