Hey guys, so there are a lot of energy drinks out there that promise so many hours of energy in just one bottle, but they can be very dangerous if you drink too many. If you want a less processed way to get energy, make one of these!
The Fire Hydrant
- 1 slice lemon
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
The lemon helps your body maintain a healthy pH level. The cayenne pepper raises your energy naturally and protects your heart. Combine this with the water you need to stay hydrated!
The Quick Fix//
- 1 1/2 – 2 teaspoons honey (for taste)
- 1 inch fresh ginger root
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
Cut off two thin slices of ginger and add it a mug of hot water. Use a garlic press to juice the rest, and add it into the water along with the spices and stir. Ginger and turmeric speeds up metabolism and increased circulation. Cardamom speeds up your metabolism and boosts energy. Honey is one of the best sugars for your body.
The Heavy Lifter//
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/4 cup raw almonds or 2 tablespoons almond butter
- 1 scoop of whey protein powder
- 2 washed kale leaves
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 cup milk
A morning energy smoothie is a good way to make sure you start off your day fueled. Pair this with a slice of whole grain toast, and you’ve got the perfect breakfast!
