I’ve been exceptionally mindful of what I put in this belly since starting Conscious Coconut. I’m traveling and on the road all day and sometimes, I just forget to eat. I’m busy and as 2-3pm comes around – I crash, have a headache and get grumpy; as would be expected. It became quickly apparent that if I didn’t fix this asap I wouldn’t have the energy to grow this business the way I have always dreamt of.
I’ve been a vegetarian and pescatarian on and off but like I mentioned in the healing after injuries post, I needed to up my protein so I eat meat occasionally. If anyone is feeling a little tired and needs a pep in their step I encourage you to try a few of the things below. I feel like wonder woman and have so much more energy. I drink one coconut water a day which keeps me super hydrated and I also love matcha tea which blasts me with energy.
Hot water and lemon
Cup of water
Organic coffee with almond milk or cold brew
Avocado Toast on ezekiel bread, sea salt, lemon, and chile powder
Organic juice like Suja or Pressed Juicery
Greek yogurt with coconut, fresh fruit, granola, agave
Or a smoothie with everything in the world:
– Kale, Spinach, Avocado
– My favorite fruits are mango, blueberries and frozen bananas
– Carrots, Beets
– 2 tbl of coconut oil : )
– Cacao or grape seed powder
– Almond butter
– Aloha packet (the best!)
– Chia seeds
These all take about 2 minutes to make and they give me hours of energy. I usually won’t eat again until 1-2 pm.
For either lunch or dinner I eat a pita or millet flax wrap filled with:
Hard boiled egg
This concoction is the most perfect thing I’ve ever found. It’s flowing with protein and vegetables and I swear I feel better, think clearer and my skin is absolutely glowing.
This may seem like a pretty light menu for a day but the missing link are my almonds. I keep a big bag (currently wasabi soy) in my purse with a liter of water and eat a few handfuls a day. I don’t get hungry whatsoever I feel so much more energetic than I have in YEARS.
