We Love Nutra Organics

It’s no secret that I live a pretty busy life, every Mum does. I feel like parenting is a marathon and we need to fuel our bodies accordingly.

When we skip meals or live off our kids left overs, we are not maintaining the level of energy we require for everything we do.

As parents we are chefs, coaches, cheerleaders, councillors, chief cuddler, head negotiator and so much more. Our bodies, brains and spirit need bolstering with good food, adequate calories and lots of nutrients. 

I am definitely not a nutritionist, but I am a busy mum and in the last 12 months I have experienced a massive shift in my energy levels and I credit this to a few things:

Actively seeking happiness

Surrounding myself with positive influences

Adding a few key supplements to my daily intake

I have shared my favourite supplements a few times before on Snapchat and Instagram, but everyday we have new people clicking follow. So we wanted to create a blog post to keep our top picks visible for those interested. 

Nutra Organics has also been kind enough to provide our community with a discount!

Hemp Protein | Salted Cacao Maca

This protein powder takes the cake when it comes to flavour and health benefits.

At first I wasn’t sure what to expect from a hemp based protein powder because quite frankly some plant based products taste less than desirable.

I was blown away with this product. It is the perfect salted caramel combo. Sweet, without being sickly and definitely has a true caramel flavour.

Hemp protein is great because:

It is a good source of PROTEIN which is necessary for tissue building, repair, growth & maintenance of muscle mass and bones.
Contains ZINC that contributes to normal fertility, reproduction and cognitive function.
Contains VITAMIN C which supports regular energy metabolism, psychological function & may reduce tiredness & fatigue.
SPROUTED & BIO-FERMENTED for gentle digestion.
PRE-& PROBIOTICS for gut support
Contains FIBRE to keep you feeling satisfied.

Collagen Beauty

Collagen beauty is a completely flavourless, very fine powder, that dissolves into any liquid and is practically undetectable.

It is 100% protein and helps me to easily achieve my protein intake throughout the day.

I add this to my morning coffee and my smoothie everyday. It is perfect to pop into your oats or yoghurt also.

Firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles
Reducing cellulite

The Boy's Non-Negotiable Smoothie

I get a lot of questions about the boys daily smoothie.

I have been really open and honest in sharing the fact that the boys have been fussy eaters during toddlerhood. Matt and I made the decision to introduce a daily ‘non-negotiable’ smoothie.

Sometimes they’ll have it for breakfast and other times, in the afternoon, however we have noticed the biggest difference in their mood and behaviour since including this smoothie.

A lot of classic acting up from a toddler can stem from hunger or dehydration, and I think with our boys fussy food habits they had been missing some essential nutrients like adequate protein and good fats. This smoothie ticks all the boxes.

They enjoy the taste, we feel good knowing it’s helping their minds and bodies and we all reap the rewards of calmer kids with full, satisfied tummies. 

Below you’ll see our smoothie recipe

2x Scoops of Exotic Vanilla Thriving Power
2 x Scoops of Collagen Beauty Powder
Macadamia Milk
1 Ripe Banana
1/2 Cup Frozen Banana Pieces
1 Heaped tablespoon of Peanut Butter

Snacks For On The Go

A snack I’m loving at the moment is to create my own trail mix by combining the below.

I portion this into handful sized serves and find this paired with a piece of fresh fruit really gets me through that 3pm snack attack hour!
