A few sprinkles of cinnamon went into this almond milk latte and it was delish!!
It was also, secretly nutrish since cinnamon is anti-aging and great for weight loss, too!!
Are you asking yourself how this is even possible? I mean, I drink pumpkin spice lattes with a sprinkle of cinnamon all the time and I'm not squeezing into no bikini right now...
Well, yeah, no on the pumpkin spice front. BUT cinnamon itself does actually lower blood sugar, therefore reducing the weight gaining and aging affect of sugar. Ingesting it regularly (on top of a n unsweetened black coffee, for instance) is majorly beneficial.
Adding cinnamon to your coffee gives it a HUGE nutritional boost!
High in antioxidants (hello, age reversal )
Reduces insulin which means easier weight loss
Full of phytonutrients to boost your health
You can add it to other things, too! How about that baked sweet potato, or your green smoothie?
Chemistry professors know a lot about aging.
They don't necessarily care about what aging means in terms of looks, of course. They are all wrapped up in chemical reactions, but I do, and I learned a lot from them during my years as a student of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology.
Here is what I do know after years of chemistry classes and personal research...
All the known secrets of aging in reverse are found in these few things...
A diet full of colorful plant foods
Nutrient dense fats such as avocado, olive oil and almonds
A tailored supplement regimen (which we will be digging into soon in the No-Diet Diet Club)
Regular exercise (HIIT is best, follow me on Instagram for a lot more tips on this!)
Biohacking (a new one I am experimenting with and will be sharing with you!)
If you have any questions about these, comment and let me know!
There are a lot of unspoken things when it comes to anti-aging.
I mean seriously, what the **** is Cindy Crawford doing?
Well, actually, probably some of what we are going to talk about here today!
I learned from a college chemistry teacher that, technically, if we could eliminate all free radicals for all of time, we would never age or die.
Dang, that blew my mind.
I was like "blueberries, NOW!"
Free radicals are what cause aging. We can eradicate them by ingesting anti-oxidants which are found in plant foods.
Although it is probably not possible to ingest THAT many anti-oxidants, it doesn't hurt to try!
Here are some of the best free radical busting foods available
I am going to break down a whole month of this in the No-Diet Diet Club, so don't miss it! Click here to check it out!
How often do you slow down and take a moment for silence?
If you're like most, chances are you don't.
When I suggest this, most people think it's stupid, a waste of time. They tell me they don't have time for it.
But taking this quiet time can have major benefits...way more benefits than you'll ever get from another 5 minutes of Netflix.
Meditation, as some call it, works on all systems of the body at the cellular level. This isn't just about getting peace and quiet so you don't yell at your kids, this is about altering your body chemistry.
Simply taking five minutes to be still can:
slow the aging process
reduce risk of heart attack
I don't know where else you can get that many benefits out of five minutes...
I would love to know how include this in your day! Comment here and tell me:)
This was one of the coolest things I learned while I was getting my nutrition degree.
The colors in plants mark the nutrients they contain. We can literally color ourselves healthy by eating all these colors,
COLOR is how we nourish our bodies!! Whatever you're eating day in and day out, it should be full of COLOR!
The nutrients in our foods are marked by color
More color means more variety of nutrients
Colors mean anti-aging and anti-disease
Do you think this is as cool as I do?
