As a fitness and wellness professional, I’m careful about my diet. While I do have the occasional piece of cake or handful of dark chocolate chips, I like to eat 80% “clean” (meaning real, whole foods) and 20% treats ( I love ice cream!). Sometimes I find it easy to eat well. And sometimes I don’t. I don’t when I’m low on time and/or don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on produce that goes bad before I can use it.
When Organifi reached out about partnering with me, I jumped at the opportunity because it’s tough to find companies that create powders and supplements that aren’t filled with mystery fillers. Since Organifi offers a bunch of different products, I want to share my thoughts on what they offer and what I like about each of their products.
I am OBSESSED with turmeric. Inflammation is bad, bad news. It’s the source of all sorts of bad health-related issues. Turmeric is shown to help reduce inflammation, supporting joint health. For example, when I first got on the phone with Organifi, I mentioned my dad suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. Organifi generously sent my dad their turmeric, and after it arrived he tried it right away. He called me after he took the first dose because he was amazed. Usually he has to pry his fingers apart in the morning, and after his turmeric, he didn’t have to force his fingers open. If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is.
So many people I know suffer from digestion issues. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear about some sort of gastrointestinal distress from someone in my circle. Biotic Balance is a vegan probiotic capsule with ten of the worlds most potent probiotic strains. Each strain is specifically chosen to fix your digestion, stop bloating, soothe stomach pain, reduce inflammation in your gut, and improve fat loss. I don’t want to get too TMI, but this probiotic has been good for my gut.
Have you ever tried to make green juice? It’s a big mess. And requires lots of produce. And if you don’t use the produce in time, it wilts, dies, and looses all it’s health benefits. Whomp, whomp. However, I was skeptical about this green juice powder. Could it be as good and as good for you as green juice you can make or buy? Yes! And way less mess and way less money. I mix my green juice with water, and I find it a refreshing afternoon pick me up. If you’re thinking you’d like to add more greens to your diet, this is an easy way.
My kids love this red juice. Thomas, my toddler, screams RED JUICE! Again, if a toddler will drink it, what more do you need?! HA! This red juice features all those good-for-you red things, like acai, beet, and pomegranate, to name a few. Like the green juice, I mix this up with water for a refreshing pick me up.
I’ve probably tried 39,534 chocolate protein powders, and this one is my favorite. Not too sweet, not at all chalky. Here’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy this protein powder:
Sarah’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake
+2 scoops Organifi Chocolate Protein Powder
-2 cups unsweetened almond milk
-1 frozen banana
-1 scoop natural peanut butter
-1 handful of spinach
Blend in a blender until smooth and you’ve got a protein and vitamin packed shake.
If I’ve tried 39,534 chocolate powders, I’ve tried even more vanilla powders. Again, not chalky, no weird after taste. I like to blend the vanilla powder in an acai bowl (video coming soon!). It’s also easy to scoop this powder into a blender bottle (the Organifi one is my favorite), and you have an instant on-the-go meal. (Hint: add some cinnamon to the powder and almond milk in your blender bottle!)
