Lemon Ginger Tea

Fall is here and so are gross sicknesses that come with the cold weather. 

My favorite at home remedy for keeping me healthy is ginger! Its amazing for soothing upset stomachs, can help with muscle pain after working out and calms nausea.

I love Bigelow's Lemon Ginger Tea with Probiotics especially in my Mascara and Mermaid cup, thanks Etsy! ❀️

I add one packet of True Lemon too! It's a good substitute to a sweetener or cream πŸ‹

Skinny PB Blossom Protein Shake

Remember those cute little peanut butter cookies with Hershey's kisses on top?!  And remember how yummy they taste?! But remember how unhealthy they are... *sigh* πŸ˜”

Β 

WELL... Have no fear! I've come up with a perfect alternative  πŸ‘Œ

  • 4oz Unsweetened Cashew Milk  
  • 2T PB2 Powder  
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 2-4 scoops Glutamine 
  • 7-10ish Ice Cubes

Wait! What is Glutamine?  

Glutamine is an amino acids that makes up a large percentage of your muscles.

  • Helps with a speedy recovery after workouts.
  • Helps burn body fat while increasing muscle growth
  • Maintains hydration. 
  • Boosts your immune system. 
  • ALSO! It is a key nutrient in your intestines meaning it helps keep a healthy gut structure so being Gluten Free, that's huge for me.  
  • It can even cure ulcers.

Even if you don't workout, Glutamine can still benefit you! 

Stick with the layers

  1. cashew milk
  2. glutamine
  3. protein powder
  4. pb2 powder
  5. ice

    I'm Eating The Batter πŸͺ

    When I was just a peanut, I was always guilty of my sticky little fingers getting into the cookie dough while baking. I can't tell you how many times I saw the fear cross my mom's face of me getting salmonella. πŸ™Š Whoops! But it was so yummy, I couldn't resist! 
     
    I never actually grew out of my cookie dough obsession, I just created a salmonella free, healthy version of my childhood favorite treat (other than Nutella of course.)
     
    • 1/2 cup fat free ricotta cheese
    • 1 tbs vegan 70% dark chocolate chips  
    • 1 tsp agave nectar (optional)
    • PB2 powder to tasting  

    You can also add a 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein  

    Mix together and refrigerate!

    Cheater Cheater Nutella Eater

    Years ago, while living overseas in Singapore, I discovered this heavenly jar of hazelnut and chocolate spread. Believe it or not, (because it's still questionable in my head), Nutella is considered a "healthy breakfast" when served on toast! I know. Something about the calcium... 

    Anyway, I fell in love by the spoonful!

    I would finish a jar of Nutella in 4 days, like Costco size Nutella... GONE! Scraped that sucker clean 😈

    Well, since it's no longer "socially acceptable" to eat it by the jar full, it's now my guilt-free cheat day pleasure! 

     Obsessed!!

           A spoonful of Peanut Butter   A spoonful of Nutella... 😍 

      

    • A spoonful of Peanut Butter
    • A spoonful of Nutella... 😍 

    Makes me want my cheat dessert all over again! Have to wait till next week πŸ˜‰

    Happy Cheating!Β

    Balancing with Brittney

    Today starts my documented journey of health and fitness! While I've always had a passion for being a health nut, I've never broadcasted it on social media. Whether it was embarrassment or fear of judgment, I stayed behind closed doors and never shared the ups and downs of this exciting and emotional journey I started years ago.

    So, here I am at 23, turning a new chapter in my life to hopefully inspire some, and keep motivating myself!
