We all know the holidays get crazy, your going to eat some fun foods and that’s ok. Don’t beat yourself up about it but DO be proactive about keeping yourself healthy! Avoid getting sick with these drink alternatives during the holiday season to keep your eating (somewhat) on track, but most importantly to get the vitamins and nutrients you need to keep your energy high!

During the holiday season this is one of my favorite things to do for two reasons!

1: Your body gets use to pre-workout or caffeine if you take it regularly so this is a good way to reset your adrenaline response

2: While you can still enjoy your favorite meals and desserts, its an easy way to keep health incorporated into your food.

 

I use to get sick EVERY season!! after changing my diet I haven’t been sick in over a year!! Its crazy to see the affect food has on your body, which is why I want you guys to feel amazing too!

Here is my list of

favorite energy source replacements:



Beet powder
  •  Mix with water, almond milk or juice and enjoy

Useful because: antioxidants, fiber, potassium, folate. Also high in  nitrates, which are converted to nitric oxide in the body (gets oxygen to your blood quicker = quicker recovery during a workout) or just blood circulation in general.

Coconut oil
  • Take a tablespoon by mouth or use it while cooking something in the skillet, (eggs, veggies ect.)
  • Useful because: it has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties AND boosts energy.

 

Honey Matcha

Mix:
  • 1 tsp of matcha
  • 8-16 oz of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon of raw unfiltered honey

 

Useful because: antibacterial, antioxidants, antifungal, reduces cough and throat irritation, immune boost.

 

Hot water with lemon

mix: 8-16 oz
  • Useful because: keeps you hydrated during the cold weather where we sometimes forget to drink, oops. Lemons also have vitamin b, a, c, zinc and many other vitamins.

 

Hot Ginger. turmeric, cinnamon

  • 8-16oz original almond milk
