I’ve been on a meal prep kick lately, which had me creating easy sides to eat by themselves or combined with proteins or sandwiches. When I pre-make meals, it’s more for the ease of it all vs. dieting. I love how thoughtless the process is. When you’re hungry and in a hurry, you just grab it from the fridge and chow down. Easy-peasy. And it prevents me from eating out, which I love!
I’ve been getting loads of questions lately on Instagram about collagen and It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Vital Proteins and their gut-friendly products. I understand for many it can be overwhelming as to where to start — since there are so many product options to choose from and many ways to use them. Typically, I use Vital Proteins products in my hot tea, smoothies or I bake and cook with them. It is really easy to sneak collagen powder in homemade sauces or things like guacamole.
A few weeks ago I mentioned my current hormonal imbalance and in a future post coming to the blog very soon, I plan to elaborate more on the matter. But until then, I can tell you that my doctor recommended I incorporate maca powder into my diet. Maca is a pure and potent super root that may help the body adapt to stress. Traditionally, maca has been used to deliver abundant energy, increase stamina and aid in hormonal balance and improve moods. Beyond being nutrient dense and a rich source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids maca has been known to help clear acne and blemishes too.
