July 4th Indulgence? Slimming Metabolic Boosting Smoothies To The Rescue July 09 2014
Did you "indulge" over the July 4th holiday? Whether you had a barbecue or not you probably did. Even if you didn't overeat you probably had a continuous case of the munchies. Not to mention, it's summertime and sometimes that leads to a little too much liquid refreshment - if you know what I mean.
Not to worry! I'm going to let you in on two great Slimming Metabolic Boosting Smoothies that can rescue you and allow you to reclaim that summertime body you've worked so hard for. So, let's balance out your not-so-good holiday behavior with some good post-holiday behavior for the health of your body.
Are you one of those people who after a day of indulging you wake up and immediately want to grab another indulgence to make you feel better? Have I got a smoothie for you.....
The Holiday Hangover Helper Shake
Made with LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein Powder mixed with granulated coffee, this smoothie will immediately help you begin detoxing from any bad indulgences.
We hear all the time about vegetables and their super-protein but chocolate, in its pure form has just as many antioxidants, if not more, than vegetables. Antioxidants neutralize the damage done while indulging. Let's take a closer look at why LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein is so effective.
LynFit Chocolate Whey Protein is made from Chocolate Bean Powder. I just love that name - anything chocolate works for me. Chocolate Bean Powder boosts mood by raising the level of serotonin in our brains, and when we feel better we eat better and move around more. Chocolate Bean Powder contains more antioxidants than just about any other natural food. The raw cacao bean, from which the powder is made is estimated to include 30 natural compounds; including calcium, potassium, sodium, sulfur, zinc and copper, just to name a few.
Remember: this is not your standard chocolate. So don't think you can substitute half a can of Nestle's! Chocolate, milk chocolate and others used in candy, includes cocoa butter, sweeteners and many other additives. It is so highly processed that most of the benefits are removed and is not good for weight loss.
LynFit Chocolate Whey Powder is a highly effective ingredient that is perfect for weight loss. It has been de-fatted and purified, an expensive process that helps with fat loss. You cannot eat high-grade chocolate and get the same benefits (more information about Chocolate Bean Powder can be found on pages 30-31 of "The Metabolism Solution").
So, here's the ingredients for your Holiday Hangover Helper Shake:
2 scoops LynFit Chocolate Whey Powder
½ cup of ice
1 tsp granulate coffee
Boost your metabolism, block cortisol (the stress hormone that rises, especially when we over-indulge) that causes belly fat to be stored, and boost your mood today with the Holiday Hangover Helper Shake!
While the Holiday Hangover Helper Shake is my all-time favorite, the next would be my Skin Nourisher Shake.
The Skin Nourisher Shake
Especially during the summer months, we're damaging our skin in the sun. The Skin Nourisher Shake feeds our skin and re-nourishes it in three ways:
(1) LynFit Whey Protein in the shake helps feed and regenerate cells in our body;
(2) Blueberries loaded with antioxidants - a power food that helps neutralize free radical damage caused by the sun, and red raspberries - one of the highest fiber fruits you can eat that helps detox and cleanse.
(3) Green tea - loaded with antioxidants, theanine and amino acids that help you focus yet relax at the same time.
Ready to nourish your skin with a delectably good smoothie? Here's what you'll need:
1 scoop LynFit Vanilla Whey Powder
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 pack pre-made green tea
5 ice cubes
These and other great-tasting, metabolic boosting Protein Shake recipes can be found on pages 46-47 of "The Metabolism Solution".
Here's hoping you have a "smoothie" summer!
