Skipping meals is probably one of the worst things you can do for your mood, your metabolism and your over all health. Without sufficient energy (calories/carbs) our bodies are forced into survival mode. This means fat storage, fatigue, headache, moodiness and sometimes even hormonal imbalance. By making sure you’re getting enough during the day, you can experience life to the fullest.
Granted, it’s easier said than done. Caleb and I work from home and even still, it’s challenging to get enough. We’ve pretty much come to an agreement that we communicate during the day who is going to be responsible for making sure we’re fed. Some days, that’s me and some days that’s him. For the most part, our days consist of a lot of fruit and often in the form of liquid meals (smoothies). It’s not that we aren’t into solid food, it’s just that smoothies take like 3 minutes or less to whip together when we’re caught up in a task and instead of skipping a meal all together, we just throw some fruit in the Vitamix and get back to work.
I love this little raspberry energy booster smoothie, it’s so fun tasting and packed with anti-oxidants and essential vitamins that help protect your immune system, keep your skin healthy and your body hydrated. You can split this smoothie with someone or drink it all to yourself. If you’re on the go, just pack some mason jars in a cooler bag.
