Ageless Energy

What to eat? A good thing to have in your pantry is a snack basket or a snack bin. And you can have granola bars in there, trail mix in there, all ready to grab and go. And have your fruit in the fridge already washed. So you just grab it and go. You can have mixed veggies already chopped up and even in little containers if you can. And then again you just grab and go. I think it all comes back to: If we're not prepared, then it's probably not going to happen.

It's very difficult to live a healthy lifestyle without being properly prepared. So if you could, I suppose, wrap your head around understanding that we need to be prepared on a regular basis, then we're proactive instead of always rushing behind and trying to catch up, especially when it comes to snacking.

Sometimes we're not always sure that we should be snacking all the time and we should be snacking throughout the day. So we can touch on that a little bit about the importance of why we need to be snacking between our regular meals.

So when it comes to the importance of snacking, it's important to understand that we need to snack throughout the day to increase our metabolism. So a lot of times people don't have energy throughout the day. And I think that has a lot to do with lack of food or lack of nutrients. And when we don't have energy, we can't perform well. We all know what it's like to not have proper performance or not feel well, not feel well or energized. So if we can understand that we can increase our metabolism by small meals throughout the day, then we can burn body fat, we can gain energy, we can drop some inches that we're looking for and we can just feel better throughout the day.

I used to believe this or think that the less that you eat throughout the day, you know, for those of you who might be looking to drop a few pounds or lose a bit of weight, I always thought when I was trying to lose weight, the less that you ate, the better. But it wasn't until I started eating more frequently throughout the day and boosting my metabolism that it really started to shed the weight. So it's so interesting because we have that mindset that less food means less weight.

Which is backwards. So when it comes to snacking, you need something like Complete Truth Protein in your smoothies. This is a protein supplement that we designed and it's really based around those nutrients that we don't get throughout the day. So we need whole food in our bodies, we need to continue to put high quality nutrients in our body. complete truth. Complete Truth Protein is made with whole foods. So we have quinoa and we have hemp hearts or hemp seeds. So by putting these good quality nutrients into our body on a regular basis, we can fight cravings. For example, we can gain energy. And one of the first things people say when they start using Complete Truth Protein is that they can't believe how much energy they have. And that's what happens when we put good quality nutrients into our body. 

When our body doesn't recognize, utilize or absorb the foods we put in our body, it's because they're hard to digest or they don't really recognize, or you need to use it in your baking. We have awesome protein balls, for example, it's a great way to increase your metabolism, give you a boost of energy and put proper nutrients into your body throughout the day so you can live healthy all the time.
