You know that saying “You are what you eat.” Being fit is a reflection of a series of choices, choices you make in your kitchen and on-the-go. So, the next time you need a boost turn to a whole food based drink full of benefits, clean ingredients and good choices. Fawen was created using clean ingredients that fight pain and stress. Let’s face it only REAL foods do this and only REAL foods provide the fuel for a fit life.
By clean we mean, made of NOTHING, but whole foods.
It’s easy for a snack to claim to be whole food based, but when you look at their ingredients, suddenly you see words you’ve never seen before. Then you think to yourself “That’s not a true whole food snack! I don’t think it is anyway, because whole foods have simple names that I would recognize.” Our Nutritionist would tell you, “You’re exactly right.” When it comes to healthy snacking follow your intuition and educate yourself on an ingredient, especially if it’s a word you don’t recognize.
Here’s what you want to look for when shopping clean. Start with snacks that have ingredients you can understand. A great example of a drink that does just that is Fawen Ready-to-Drink-Soup.
In our May Fit Snack box you can now try their Sweet Potato and Red Lentil soup. An ingredients list filled with words you know well, including the superfoods in the name (Sweet Potato & Red Lentils). It contains coconut water for hydration, ginger root and turmeric for the antioxidants you need to thrive.
Benefits of some true superfood ingredients:
The main active ingredient in Tumeric is curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant.
Note from the Fit Snack Nutritionist: Inflammation is caused by a few negative factors. The highly processed foods you eat, stress and more. The leading cause of death in the U.S. is Heart Disease, a preventable disease. Inflammation, is a risk factor for all preventable diseases. Consume foods that lower inflammation and lower your risk of developing these diseases while improving your health.
Ginger root is closely related to Tumeric. The main active ingredient in Ginger root is Gingerol and like curcumin it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Ginger root is pretty exciting stuff. According to one study when participants consumed 2 grams of ginger per day, for 11 days, muscle pain was significantly reduced.
Fawen is the number one soup and a post workout snack you will want to have on you.
Keep a case in your trunk, pour one over ice on a hot summer day, because this is where the energy is at! To often we look at energy as caffeine or some secret ingredient, but this type of boost comes at a cost and that’s a crash. Energy IS the food you eat and the quality determines the energy you have to live the life you want. Remember REAL foods you Recognize get REAL Results!
