Drink up & boost your energy – FAST.

The fastest way to feel better and boost your energy is easy. Drink up! Aim for eight glasses of energized water. If you love your coffee, add in a couple of extra glasses to balance out.

Energy Boost Water “How to” and Recipe:
Start with two glasses of water, first thing in the morning, before coffee or breakfast. Our bodies wake up dehydrated and need to be refreshed. Continue replenishing throughout your day with a glass of water at least thirty minutes before any meal and an hour or so after meals. Cut off the spigot a couple of hours before bedtime so you can sleep tight, all night.

Energized Water Recipe:
Just add the following into as many of your glasses as possible. Note: Lemon, and any citrus, is hard on your enamel. Rinse your mouth afterwards.

* A squirt of fresh lemon juice (cleanses your system) and
* An 1/8 tsp of Sea Salt (boosts low blood pressure).

The Sea Salt (not table or iodized salt) boosts blood pressure. Most people with Adrenal Fatigue have low blood pressure and need this boost. If your water tastes “good” to you with the salt, continue. That’s a sign your body needs it. If it doesn’t taste good, pass.

For more information about Adrenal Fatigue, click here:  There is also a “Tired Mom Quiz” you might find helpful. Information is power. I aim to provide you with both, and what you need to feel-better-fast.

Cheers!   Viveca

Hallelujah Hummus Plus – Gluten Free, Energy Boosting Snack

Hallelujah Hummus Plus

This is one of my favorite snacks and it is soooo FAST and easy to make with the “Magic Bullet.” This recipe is one of many with the ‘bullet” and can be made in a couple of minutes – max.

Step 1. Load the following into your bullet (or blender)

¼ cup Chicken (or vegetable) Stock
14 oz can Chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
3 cloves Garlic
2 Tbs Lemon Juice
3 Tbs. Tahihi (sesame paste)

Step 2Add these energy-boosters
½ tsp Kelp Powder
½ tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

Step 3. Blend!
Psst. You can check out the Magic Bullet in our Amazon store. Just click here and look in the “Kitchen Equipment” List.

Scoop your hummus into a pretty bowl, drizzle olive oil on top and serve with a side of veggies and gluten-free crackers.

Another fun way to present it is to make little cucumber sandwiches or lettuce roll ups. You can pack these “to go” in lunches. I  also like to use fun, colorful toothpicks or paper umbrellas to jazz it up for snacks with friends.
