Moon Juice Blue Moon Protein

SweatTheStyle_MoonJuice_BlueMoon-3 Moon Juice’s Blue Moon doesn’t just have a cool name it’s a vegan milk that helps build lean muscle, tame inflammation, and boost the immune system. It’s the perfect post workout drink!

Moon Juice delivers with a wide range of specialized organic ingredients that heal, strengthen, and detox the body! What causes the blue color is Phycocyanin Agae which is only found in blue-green algae like spirulina. What’s special about Phycocyanin is that it triggers the production of stem cells which allow your body to regenerate faster, which speeds up recovery after working out and prevents soreness.

Blue Moon has a filling and satisfying texture created by a mixture of coconut, brown rice protein, chia seeds, and a variety of other nutrients that goes down easy after a long workout or first thing in the morning.

SweatTheStyle_ProteinPumkinBalls_IngredientsPumpkin is this season’s super squash and eating with the seasons is key for good health and vitality. These bite-sized, no-bake, dairy-free pumpkin treats make for a healthy, blood-sugar balancing snack that will keep mid-afternoon sugar cravings at bay and will fuel your body with the right set of nutrients for long lasting energy. What makes these snacks so filling and satisfying is their impressive protein and fiber content plus they’re rich in powering vitamins and minerals like zinc, iron, chromium (a natural blood sugar stabilizer), B vitamins and immune-boosting, skin-protecting antioxidants like vitamin A and C. Enjoy 1 or 2 balls as a snack or dessert or consume before or after a workout.

Raw Almonds

SweatTheStyle_AlmondsRaw Almonds are a great source of protein, vitamin E, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Because they contain healthy fats they keep you full longer. They’re great for your skin, hair, and nails. I usually carry a handful of raw almonds in my bag to snack on in between meals, as well as when I travel. It’s better to stick to raw almonds rather than roasted because they’re more nutritious and have not been salted or cooked in oil.
