Happy Friday, I hope you have had a great week! I officially started training for Ironman Lake Placid on Monday and it has felt good to get back into a structured fitness routine. However, I must admit, I am much more tired and hungry at the end of the day now. As I did my long swim workout on Tuesday, I was reflecting back to my last training cycle and I thought about how many times I had gotten sick during the year. I know part of it was sleep deprivation and not keeping up with my nutrition, so I made a promise to myself to make this year’s training different by focusing on proper rest and eating healthy. So last night I was in bed before 10pm (which is unheard of for this night owl) and after my early morning run, I made a delicious nutrient dense Chocolate Strawberry Banana Superfood Parfait to refuel my body.
If you follow my blog, you know that I made a commitment a few months ago to incorporate five superfoods a day into my diet. My mission is now a little easier since I discovered Navitas™ Organic Essential Superfood Blends and Daily Superfood Boosts. The Essential Blends are plant based and free of dairy, soy, and gluten. They also contain 12 grams of protein, 14 or more superfoods, and 6 billion CFU’s of probiotics. The Daily Boosts are a unique blend of superfoods formulated to focus on different areas of wellness. I used the Beauty and Focus Boosts with the Cacao and Greens Essential Blend for my lovely parfait this morning.
What are Superfoods?
“Superfood” is a term to describe anything edible that is a nutritional powerhouse. These foods contain high amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They may also aid in weight loss and reduce the risk of chronic diseases in individuals that consistently eat them. These nutrient dense foods can help increase one’s energy level as well! Navitas™ Organics Essential Blends and Organic Daily Boosts are a quick and easy way to add several superfoods to your diet every day! I love adding them to smoothies, smoothie bowls, coconut milk, and yogurt. This morning I blended it into strawberry greek yogurt to make my parfait. Check out the recipe below:
