Chlorella a superfood you need, especially for those at high risk for cancer

 
I love learning more about health and nutrition every single day. There is always more to learn and they are always finding new #superfoods out there that used to be overlooked.I especially search for things that keep#Cancer away. Being a one year #cancersurvivor I know first hand the importance of every thing I put in my body. A once self proclaimed smoothie hater, that now can't live without her morning dose of #cancerfighting ingredients.
Because I got a crash course in nutrition during my cancer battle, I realized most people don't even know this stuff. They blindly go to the supermarket and buy box after box of processed chemicals to put in their body. Not even thinking about where all the non-food items go in their bodies after they are done.
The sad truth is, most of the time it doesn't go anywhere. You know how a piece of sand gets stuck in an oyster and it makes a pearl? Well it does the same thing to you, but that pearl is a tumor a syst, a growth. etc.. Everything you put in your body either helps you or hurts you, there is no in between. I hope you take a second and learn about #chlorella today. I don't go a day without it!
If you want an easy tasty way to get it down, and you want the 100% #organic #nongmo form... hit me up.http://www.shakeology.com/momwhatsfordinner

All time favorite Superfood Shake

 

This one takes the cake. 
Like I want it every day. I crave it. I need it. 
SO good. 
The directions are on the image. But I want to tell you more about Maca here. It is all about educating yourself on what it does for your body. 
 supply of Organic non-gmo superfoods that are packed with Maca? Get yours here
All proceeds go to the We are Warriors Cancer Recovery Fund. 


Here are the top 7 health benefits:
1. Vitamins
Maca is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids.

2. Sexual function
Maca is widely used to promote sexual function of both men and women. It serves as a boost to your libido and increases endurance. At the same time it balances your hormones and increases fertility.

3. Women’s health and mood
Maca relieves menstrual issues and menopause. It alleviates cramps, body pain, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, and depression. If you are pregnant or lactating you should avoid taking maca.

4. Energy
Within days of using maca your energy level increases. It is also known for increasing stamina. Many athletes take maca for peak performance. If you find yourself tired most of the time, experiment with maca to see if it helps. Just a small amount could be exactly what you need for a boost!

5. General health
Maca helps your overall health in a number of ways. It supplies iron and helps restore red blood cells, which aids anemia and cardiovascular diseases. Maca keeps your bones and teeth healthy and allows you to heal from wounds more quickly. When used in conjunction with a good workout regime you will notice an increase in muscle mass.

6. Skin
Maca helps to clear acne and blemishes. Another benefit for your skin is that is decreases sensitivity. In hot or cold weather, maca may help your skin withstand extreme temperatures.

7. Mood balance
Maca helps alleviate anxiety, stress, depression or mood swings.  Some have reported an increase in mental energy and focus.

The health benefits of Spirulina




If you have not heard about the health benefits of Spirulina, it is time to do so! Let me tell you what this superfood can do! Below is a summary of what Spirulina can do. Get yours HERE

Immune Support
A number of animal and test tube studies suggest that spirulina increases production of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, and other cells that improve immunity and help ward off infection and chronic illnesses such as cancer. However, it has not been tested in people. In one clinical trial that involved humans, another type of blue-green algae called chlorella did not boost the immune response to flu vaccine.

Protein Supplement
Amino acids make up 62% of spirulina. Because it is a rich source of protein and other nutrients, spirulina has been used as a nutritional supplement. However, although spirulina contains a certain level of protein, you would need to take very large quantities to see any effect. Other sources of protein, such as nuts, legumes, whole grains, and meat, provide protein in smaller servings.

Allergic Reactions
Animal and test tube studies suggest that spirulina may protect against allergic reactions by stopping the release of histamines, substances that contribute to allergy symptoms, such as a runny nose, watery eyes, hives, and soft-tissue swelling. But whether these preliminary studies will help people with allergies is not known.

Antibiotic-related Illnesses
Although antibiotics destroy unwanted organisms in the body, they may also kill "good" bacteria called probiotics, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus. This can cause diarrhea. In test tubes, spirulina has boosted the growth of L. acidophilus and other probiotics. More research is needed to determine whether spirulina will have the same effect in people.

Infection
Test tube studies suggest that spirulina has activity against herpes, influenza, and HIV. But researchers don’t know whether it would also work in people.

Oral Cancer
In one placebo-controlled study, taking spirulina seemed to reduce a precancerous lesion known as leukoplasia in people who chewed tobacco. Lesions were more likely to go away in the spirulina group than in the placebo group. More research in this area is needed.

Liver Disorders
Preliminary evidence suggests that spirulina may help protect against liver damage and cirrhosis (liver failure) in people with chronic hepatitis. Without more research, however, it is impossible to say whether spirulina offers any real benefit.

Here is a tasty way to get it down! Tastes like a strawberry milkshake! 

Green Superfood Strawberry Smoothie 

1 cup frozen organic strawberries, 
1 packet greenberry 
1cup almond milk. 

Blend and serve!! 
Once again this shake contains the nutrients of 5 salads. 
All my superfoods,  and loving the cancer fighting spirulina!

Vanilla Chai Superfood Milkshake


It is fall! Time for all things Chai. That usually means a lot of temptation for me. Not anymore!!!
Now that I have replaced the stuff I used to put in my chai tea with Shakeology, I am staying fit and healthy and get a treat too! Why? Because Shakeology can help you loose weight, reduce cravings, increase energy and stamina, promote health digestion and regularity. By replacing Shakeology with one meal along with regular exercising and eating 5-6 small meals a day it can help lower cholesterol by 30% to 70% and help reduce bad cholesterol by an average 38%. the shakes can reduce cardiovascular risk by 24% on average, lowers oxidant damage caused by free radicals on the average of 45%, which can also help decrease the risk for developing heart disease, dementia, and arthritis.

There are over 30 superfoods in Shakeology, but I am going to educate you today on two of my favorites: CHLORELLA and SPIRULINA - Did you know these superfoods can actually reverse cancers? Both of these super-foods have been clinically shown to demonstrate stunning preventive and curative properties when it comes to all sorts of cancers. They both rebuild nerve and damage in the brain and nervous system. That’s why they have been used for recovery of patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

I would like to help you get the proper nutrition in your body. Eliminate foreign chemicals and non-food items you have been putting in your body, and fill it with superfoods. Contact me today to get started on your new happy healthy fit life. 

Recipe for the Chai shake is on the image. Just blend and serve! Enjoy!

Strawberry Blonde Superfood Shake

So I have been sharing some of the crock pot dishes from this amazing Clean Eating Crockpot challenge I am running. If you missed out, another one is starting December 1st. I had a ton of people wanting to join in on the 2nd and 3rd day and since it is only a 7 day challenge, I am doing another one to train up two coaches and help out those that are ready to get healthy.  Want in? Ask to join the group here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/693383594092028/ 

Today I am sharing one of the available snacks on this challenge. While we offer plenty of options and  you can do the whole challenge without Shakeology, I always choose the shakeology option. Why?  Well let me tell you what is in this beauty.


1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
1 packet Vanilla Shakeology
Blend and serve. 

SO why am I so freaking addicted to this product? Besides being a cancer survivor and knowing that the ingredients are the best out there. 
My hair is growing like CRAZY I have been trying to grow my hair long my whole life. Don't listen to people when they say nothing makes your hair grow faster. Good nutrition WILL MAKE IT GROW... almost too fast. Shaving twice a day isn't going to happen, but I almost need to now! My nails are the same story and I don't like having long nails so I am trimming once a day now.
Here are just SOME of the superfoods that are in just ONE packet. I was buying all this stuff every month (Picture of the products I usually buy attached) and each ingredient ranges from $9.99 to 18.99 a piece if I get the organic non-gmo which I do.. I have to (cancer). So here is how I just cut my grocery budget in half. I am such a believer I finally aligned myself with this company. Which is something companies have wanted from me for several years. Get this stuff. If not from me, (http://www.shakeology.com/momwhatsfordinner) get it. It changed my life.
