Citrus Chia Energy Drink + ''Increasing Energy Levels Naturally Without Caffeine or Sugar''


I talk a lot about foods without refined sugar and how foods have the ability to give your body treatment that can boost your health inside and out. And yes, I believe that wholesome foods can do that for you because since the moment I’ve decided to stop eating sugar and all sorts of processed foods, my whole body have experienced a range of health benefits. Of course, this is my personal experience,  and I share it with you because I want you to know that there’s another way, a better, healthiest and indulgent way to prepare and eat food. The natural way is the way we all supposed to eat, is the way people used to eat from the beginning of time. And that somehow stops. The process of manipulation and processing of natural foods started and suddenly natural foods and healthy eating were transformed into something that could only put our body and health in question.

Replacing bad eating habits with good eating habits is not a complicated thing, though. It’s challenging at first, yes, but this is simply because ‘most of us’ are not used to eating food in its less or purest state of wholesomeness. Most of the food we’ve been eating since we were little children always have been highly processed and loaded with refined sugar. So most of us neither have the ability or knowledge to the kind of foods we’ve been putting in our mouths.

But if only we would have known about it a huge part of our eating habits would have been good, and no matter how hard other people would try to convince you to try no-so-healthy-food, you would always end up saying ‘no’ to all those foods, right?!

So, yes, all of us can do better and create the healthiest version of ourselves. No matter how long you have been on the road of ‘’I want to eat healthier but’’ you and your body deserve good nourishing foods, your well-being deserves the best so you can keep enjoying life for a long-long while.  Food is something that takes a huge part in our every day, is our fuel from the moment we wake up until the moment we go to sleep.  And when you fill your body with ‘good fuel’ you’re body is going to function as its best for you. But if you fill up your body with ‘artificial fuel’ well your body is not going to behave as good as you hope, right?

Believe in yourself; believe that you can do it. Because you can do it! And while everyone else may think different of you, you know that good choices can always take you to a good port. I want you to be part of this eating healthy lifestyle, feel your best, enjoy wholesome food and know-how to use it as your asset. So you can pass the knowledge to your loved ones too.

Processed and artificial sugars are often hidden in many products, even in those that claim to promote good health if you eat/drink it up. Energy drinks are by far one of those products. The two main ingredients in store-bought energy drinks (besides some other bizarre and mysterious ingredients) are; sugar and caffeine, and while their promises to revive your body and mind by drinking it, they can only over-stimulate and give your body and mind an ‘artificial energy boost.’ Plus an array of harmful side effects such as; adding more toxins to your body, dehydration, tooth damage, and also triggers insulin. Somehow these energy drinks are not even close to giving you a healthy boost of energy.

Sugar and caffeine are not the sources of energy your body needs, but ''food''. Wholesome food that consists of ingredients full of nutrients and natural energy boosters. Such us this ''citrus and chia energy drink''. Chia seeds are an excellent source of energy to fuel your metabolism! In fact, Chia means ‘Strength’ in the Mayan language, and was also used as a medicine by Aztecs. It is believed that chia seeds were used by Mayan warriors and messengers to maintain energy and increase resistance during long voyages and battles.

Chia seeds are rich in protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin c, calcium, potassium, iron, antioxidants, is completely plant-based, gluten-free, and it can also regulate blood sugar.
Plus citrus, in general, is also natural energy boosters (that can also help detoxify your body, good for your hair, clear skin, among other benefits). So yes, as you can see you can skip sugar and caffeine and get all the energy you need by simply using nutrient dense food that can keep you energize for hours!

Isn’t this homemade nutritious energy drink amazing? Seriously, with only four ingredients and less than five minutes, you can easily create your own energizing juice that also tastes incredibly delicious.
