Happy January, friends! This past weekend we had a super fun “My Healthy Day” class! It was based on the fun month long event/challenge that our greater team is doing all about creating healthy habits; from food, to exercise, to supplements!

The products spotlighted in My Healthy Day arePure Protein Complete (ChocolateorVanilla Spice),Balance Complete,NingXia Red 2 oz. Singles,Life 9,OmegaGize,Lemon Essential Oil,Grapefruit Essential Oil,andPeppermint Essential Oil! Along with these awesome products, our team has provided us with a Certified Holistic Nutritionist who has given us great tips and recipes and a Personal Fitness Trainer who is bringing us amazing workouts all month!

Let’s talk about these great products that we went over in the class!

I choseBalance Completefor our family for many reasons! Beckham and I have smoothies regularly andBalance Completeis such a dynamic, nutritious additive to our smoothies! It offers the benefits of NingXia wolfberry powder, brown rice bran, barley grass, extra virgin coconut oil, aloe vera, cinnamon powder, andYoung Living'spremium whey protein blend. It is high in fiber (11 grams per serving!), high in protein, and contains good fats, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals needed for a complete meal! If we are having the smoothie as a snack I will do one scoop ofBalance Completeand if we are having it for breakfast or lunch I will do two scoops! We love adding blueberries, spinach, banana, and almond milk to our smoothies!

Pure Protein Completeis the other meal replacement shake in the “My Healthy Day” class. It is a comprehensive protein supplement that combines a proprietary 5-protein blend, amino acids, and ancient peat and apple extract (which help support ATP production) with a foundation of cow and goat whey, egg white protein, and organic hemp seed protein. This provides the protein powder with a full range of amino acids that along with a proprietary enzyme blend , help support overall protein utilization in the body!

NingXia Redis an everyday must in our house! Beckham LOVES it too! It has helped support my energy, emotions, mental fog, and digestion so much! My husband loves it for energy support! The special ingredient inNingXia Redis an organic puree of the NingXia Wolfberry (same family as the goji berry) from the NingXia province in China. The NingXia Wolfberry is a powerful antioxidant that has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years and is cherished for its health, energy, and longevity benefits. It is great for all ages and stages of life! It is something our family will never go without! I love the saying “Every time you eat you are either feeding or fighting disease.” It is so true! When I drinkNingXia RedI feel like I am feeding my body the nutrients it needs, I feel well!

I have struggled with digestive issues for years andLife 9has been the biggest blessing! I have thought about taking a probiotic for years and have just been lazy! I finally pulled the trigger and I have been amazed with the digestive support I’ve experienced with this probiotic!Life 9combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains in delayed release capsules!

OmegaGizewas a new supplement for us this month!OmegaGizecombines three core daily supplements (Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin D-3, and CoQ10) to help support normal brain, heart, eye, and joint health. It can be hard to get these supplements through our diets alone so it is important to include in your supplement regiment. Vitamin D can help support immunity, help regulate mood, support normal growth and development of bones and teeth, and support the body’s natural response to inflammation. Omega-3 Fatty Acids can help support healthy hormone levels, normal blood pressure, support a healthy heart, normal brain and nerve function, and support the body’s natural response to inflammation and joint pain. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that is involved in the body’s ATP production. Think of CoQ10 as a battery within your cells!

Lemon Essential Oilis great for energy support, can help enhance mood, and helps support a healthy PH balance.

Grapefruit Essential Oilis great for to support cravings, supports a healthy metabolism, and helps support energy and endurance.Grapefruit Essential Oilis high in certain compounds like D-limonene which helps support the metabolism as well as cleansing and drainage of your lymphatic glands. It is also one of my favorites to add to my water!!

Peppermint Essential Oilhelps support healthy energy and mental alertness, aids digestion, and supports a healthy appetite!

These oils are great to add to your water, diffuse, or use topically!

One of the things we made at the class was a “Cravings” Roller withGrapefruit Essential Oil,Peppermint Essential Oil,andLemon Essential Oil! It smelled amazing!! We’ll see how it works! It would be a great roller to roll on the wrists and chest throughout the day to help support cravings and metabolism!

This was such a fun class to teach! My family loves all of the supplements thatYoung Livingoffers! It is a great feeling to be able to support our bodies wholly, from oils to supplements to chemical free home products!
