Quick Tip–How to get Prolonged Energy Throughout the Day

How we begin our day, every day, sets us up for prolonged energy or a lack there of. 

Breakfast is the first meal you eat each day. No matter what time you eat, it is still your “break fast.”  What you eat is just as important as when you eat.

If you begin your day with nothing but carbohydrates (breakfast cereals, bagels, donuts, etc.) you are setting your body up for a blood sugar rush and then a plummet.  PLUMMET = ENERGY DROP


When you begin your day with a high quality protein and some fiber it then allows your body to work efficiently and avoids that drop in energy and also avoids the spike in cravings.

Begin your day with a quality, plant based protein and you will find that you don’t get as hungry, early in the day, and that your energy levels are more stable, all day long! When you are a busy mom, like me, a fast smoothee is an amazing way to begin the day, giving me all day energy and it also gets me through to lunch without all the nasty cravings.

Is your protein supplement potent or poison?

Many people choose to add a protein supplement to their diet. I do.  Many people spend good money for this protein, only find they are paying to poison themselves and to possibly give themselves health problems down the line.

Poison in your Protein

A July 2010 Consumer Report revealed a study they had done on protein supplements.  The unfortunate findings included levels of toxic metals in these “healthy replacements” that were right at or, in some cases, above what the US Pharmacopeia say are ‘safe’.  Not that you would want to ingest ANY of these toxins since they build up in your system.


I think it is so sad that the products companies are advertising and touting as healthy alternatives are more concerned about their bottom dollar than they are about human health and safety.

I feel so blessed to have found a source for my nutritional supplementation that, in over 50+ years, has NEVER had a negative market incident.  A company that does so much testing, issues like this would never make to the public.  Thank you Shaklee for keeping MY best interest and health at root of your being.  Thank you, for keeping nutrition balanced and safe for my family and I.  Thank you!

If you, or someone you know is looking for an alternative to these tainted products, please feel free to contact me.  I am here to serve and to keep your human engine happily, humming along on the lead lap of life!
