activate your inner magic

Are you ready to elevate your energy and reclaim your body in 2017!!?

January is a great time to renew, reboot and revitalize your health. Instead of crazy fad diets and an “all or nothing” approach to weight loss, consider making the new year about SIMPLE STEPS & daily healthy rituals.This makes for longer, lasting results.

Today, I’m excited to share 3 simple tools to help you shine like never before.

1. Lay the foundation. Having a good plan and being prepared is essential. A powerful breakfast made up of protein, healthy fat, & fiber is an excellent way to help control blood sugar, reduce insulin levels and keep your energy up for hours. Try my matcha green goddess smoothie or my new favorite, Kite Hill unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt with berries, cinnamon and sprouted walnuts for a delicious morning treat.YUM!

2. Add in supplements. As we hit our 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond, our bodies may be working at a less-than-optimal level. To boost its function and your cellular performance, consider adding in a high quality multivitamin, probiotic & vitamin D3. You also may want to include chromium, alpha lipoic acid and magnesium if you desire to lose weight, boost your metabolism and/or get a better night’s sleep. To be sure you are getting what is stated on the bottle, look for GMP on the label, which stands for “good manufacturing practice.”

3. Try a tonic. Here’s what’s helping me stay happy, calm and energized: ADAPTOGENS! Although they’ve been around for over 5,000 years and used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, adaptogens and tonic herbs are the next new big thing when it comes to upping your wellness and healing your adrenals. Adaptogens create balance in the body by regulating stress response hormones like cortisol and provide fast, tangible results in stress reduction, energy, stamina and immunity. Companies like Sun Potion, Navitas and Moon Juice are making it quite easy for us all to get them flowing into our lives. Some of my favorites are Ashwagandha, Reishi, Maca and Holy Basil. Simply add into smoothies, lattes and teas – or try my recipe below!

Marlyn’s INNER PEACE Tonic:

1 cup of Tulsi Holy Basil Tea, warm
1/4 cup of unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1 tsp of coconut oil
1-2 tsp of raw cacao
1/2 tsp Ashwagandha (optional)
1/2 tsp Reishi powder (optional)
Cinnamon to taste
Tad of raw honey, coconut sugar or stevia

Make the tea and let sit for about 5 minutes. Heat the milk, if you choose. Place all ingredients, including tea and milk in a high speed blender until blended and frothy, about 30 seconds. Pour into your favorite mug. Sip, savor and enjoy!

Wishing you an amazing New Year!

With love,
