The Healthy Grocery

IT has been two weeks since New Years Eve. Which means most people are “getting back on track.” The never ending cycle of including weight loss, health, and exercise as part of their New Year resolution. You work really hard to burn off the holiday weight and once you feel like you’ve reached your goal, it is once again the “ber” months, and back to the same routine. 
 
I don’t know about you, but at least for me, it feels that way. I try my best to behave, using every ounce of self-control I have in me to focus on not over indulging on all the festive food. Lunch after lunch, dinner after dinner. Not to mention all the fruit cake, cookies and “food for the gods” that are sent over to the house! It’s a constant battle. The problem with me is, I do not like depriving myself over the holidays, so I usually do end up eating more than I need too, just because the food is there in front of me, and because I justify it by thinking “oh what the heck! It’s just once a year!” 
 
I was very stressed during the “ber” months. Much more than usual. My hectic schedule plus the horrid holiday traffic made it almost impossible for me to reach the Plana Forma studio (which I consider to be my second home) to exercise. I was just exhausted all the time, and eating all the wrong things. Sometimes I would be so busy that I would forget to eat lunch then by mid afternoon I would realize that I was starving and instead of taking the time to prep something healthy I would grab the most convenient and quickest thing to eat, which was usually some form of junk food and pig out on it like a ravenous wild animal. As a result, I would get sick more often than normal. The combination of late nights and early mornings, plus not eating properly just got the best of me. I am usually very good about having a balanced diet and incorporating exercise into my weekly schedule. But I just could not keep up with everything at the time. 
 
I voiced out my concern of feeling bloated, sluggish, and completely unhealthy to my friend, Anton San Vicente who is all about health and wellness, and also the owner/ founder of “The Healthy Grocery”. He asked me to message him my eating habits and daily routine/ schedule. I told him that I felt like my body needed to be cleansed, but that I did not want to go on a strict liquid diet, and that my body definitely needed a nutrition boost. Based on that information, he gave me some suggestions along with a starter kit of all the ingredients I would need to get started based on my needs. The kit included: 
 
1) Raw Spirulina Powder – an ancient superfood algae used for its strength, endurance, and health rejuvenating benefits. It is densely packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, trace elements, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, enzymes, and probiotic and more protein per gram than any other known food. Consuming Spirulina daily is the easiest way for you to get more green life force into your diet. The effects of Spirulina on one’s mood are nothing short of amazing. Many people are reporting that they have “never felt happier” and have been “in total balance”.
 
2) Chia Seeds - especially beneficial for endurance sports such as running, biking, and water sports. They give your body a sustained release of energy and continuous hydration through its supply of electrolytes. Chia has 5 times the calcium of milk, 2 times the potassium of bananas, 3 times the antioxidant content of blueberries, and 3 times more iron than spinach.
 
3) Raw Maca Powder - used for its incredible energizing, rejuvenating, and libido boosting properties. Maca is perfect for vegetarians, adventurers, office workers, students, and people living a fast paced lifestyle. Asides from its adaptogenic and energizing properties, Maca is also beneficial for those suffering from hormonal problems because of its hormone balancing effects. Women with PMS and menopausal symptoms have reported much relief upon consumption of Maca.
 
4) Raw Goji Berries - perhaps the most nutritionally rich berry-fruit on earth. They taste delicious and are good for almost all body types, blood types, and metabolisms.
 
Goji berries are considered the number one food-herb in Chinese and Himalayan medicine. Traditional medicine uses them to cure a variety of ailments. Ancient Chinese texts say that they increase one’s vital life force.
 
The berries have a flavor that is a cross between strawberries and raspberries. In addition to its profile of nutrients, Goji Berries are deemed to be anti-aging. Goji Berries are the only known food to stimulate the production of HGH. This makes it the number one anti-aging food. Goji berries contain more than 19 amino acids and 9 essential amino acids, 500 times more vitamin c than oranges by weight, 21 trace minerals, B-Vitamins, riboflavin, phosphorus, potassium, carotenoids, and zeaxanthin.
 
5) Raw Cacao Nibs – Cacao is chocolate in raw form. It still contains the antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients that are lost when they are cooked to make chocolate. In addition to its superior nutrition, it contains phenylethylamine (increases dopamine), tryptophan (increases seratonin), and anandamide, the natural chemical that gives us the good feelings after a workout.
 
This mix of superfood was exactly what I needed at the moment since I was constantly in a rush. Anton had all sorts of wonderful suggestion on how to incorporate these ingredients into my daily diet, and explained that if I wanted to shed off unwanted weight that I should substitute one or two meals with a smoothie made of fresh fruit and a mix of spirulina powder, maca powder, and chia seeds to fill me up and give me a nutritious energy boost. 
 
He also told me to snack on the goji berries and cacao nibs. I learned that together they taste almost like chocolate dipped strawberries! 
 
I felt great after starting my morning with a smoothie, or even just a big glass of water mixed with spirulina, and maca. It tastes a little strange at first, like raw unseasoned mushrooms, but you get used to it. I would wait a few minutes, then follow up with fresh papaya and goji berries, or a poached egg and toast. Then munch on cacao nibs. I made it a point that at least have one glass of this a day, or substitute junk food snacks with the goji berries, chia seeds, and cacao nibs instead, and I felt great! I was less sluggish, more energized, I felt lighter and healthier. Plus I felt full most of the time, so I would not over indulge when it came to holiday feasting. 
 
This really was a perfect way for me to incorporate essential nutrients into my diet at a time when I felt like there were not enough hours in a day to get things done! So this New Year, I am proud to say, that even though I ventured abroad and enjoyed all the treats there, I did not come home and dread getting on the scale. The goodies from The Healthy Grocery, and Anton’s suggestions really helped keep me on track over the holidays and I feel great about having have been one step ahead of the game and not having to start from scratch this New Year. 
 
One of the best parts about The Healthy Grocery is how convenient it is to order from them and how reasonable their prices are. You can simply order online from www.thehealthygrocery.com and they will have it delivered right to your doorstep. I guarantee you will feel so much better once you incorporate this natural nutritional boost into your daily diet. So let’s raise our spirulina smoothie filled glasses and cheers to the New Year and good health!
