Day 2 Maximize your potential
At Aligned our dream is to see everyone maximize their God-given health potential. This potential is inside everyone that breaths. It may not be realized yet but it is there. Today’s recipes can be found here.
One of the ways to develop your health is to leverage the energy systems you have in your body. If your body is using sugar as its nutritional fuel then it is still working and making the necessary energy that you need to survive. Being a sugar-burner is less effective than being a fat-burner. If you use fat sources as your energy then you become more effective at using fat for your body’s daily energy needs. This process is called ketosis.
Here are your meals for Day 3 of your ketogenic plan:
- 1 scoop Whey Protein Concentrate or Vegetable Protein
- 1 cup organic spinach
- 1 tbsp raw cocoa
- 1 cup coconut/almond milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4- 1/2 avacado
- Optional: ICE or water
- Optional: 3-4 drops peppermint oil
Place all ingredients in a blender except the Protein. Blend all ingredients for 15-30 seconds until desired consistency is achieved. Optional: Add more water or Ice to make the drink less thick.
Add protein and blend for 3-5 seconds. Serve in a glass.
You will find that a smoothie for your first meal will really fill you up for the whole morning, perhaps even until after your normal lunch time.
You may substitute chia seeds for other healthy fats. Coconut oil is an excellent choice, hemp hearts, omega-3 oils, nut butters are some choices for other fat sources.
This meal will become a regular part of your health routine because it is so quick and easy to make!!!
