Water, tea, herbal teas and coffee are great drinks to enjoy and all have low carbohydrate content so great for balancing blood sugar levels. Be sure to have full-cream milk or sugar free almond milk and skip the sugar.
The NutriBullet is excellent for creating tasty protein smoothies too! A great way to build on a simple protein shake is by adding in other components, creating a “power shake”! Other nutritious ingredients to consider adding include: 2 tbsp of chia seeds or flaxseeds, 2 tbsp of lecithin granules, 1 tspn of cinnamon powder, a heaped tspn of Maca powder, a heaped tbsp of EnergiRevive powder, a tablespoon of nut butter or a tspn of coconut oil.
Use healthy fats to slow down the release of the sugars from fruit into the blood stream. This will ensure the smoothie will sustain you for longer and keep your energy more consistent. Some healthy fat options include: full fat yoghurt or Kefir (1-3 tbsp), cold-pressed oils such as flaxseed, chia, coconut and hemp oil (1-3 tspn), nut butters such as almond, cashew or walnut (up to 1 tbsp), avocado, nuts and seeds (almonds, flax, chia and coconut) 1-2 tbsp.
Adding a good protein component to your smoothie is another way to balance and ground the smoothie, meaning it will last you for longer energy-wise. Many foods that contain good fats also contain good levels of protein. Examples of this include nuts and seeds and nut butters. Other sources of good protein include protein powders and full-fat yoghurt.
Try and reduce alcohol as much as possible as this is toxic and dehydrating to the body.
