Pure Nourishment

I just received my organic bin and inside it a beautiful gift....the latest edition of Vista Magazine! Filled with inspiring articles and information that will truly benefit our daily lives, I am inspired to share from an article written by Brendan Brazier, a vegan professional triathlete, the founder of Vega and bestselling author on performance nutrition.

Brendan recommends supplementing the body with sustainable nourishment from plant based sources and discusses the appropriate time and place for stimulation.  He clarifies that over stimulation results in adrenal stress whereas nourishment provides adrenal support. Those in a continual momentum of short term stimulation via caffeine and sugary foods bring added stresses to adrenals where as a healthy nutritional profile of plant based, alkalizing foods contributes to long term, sustainable energy for healthy, balanced performance. What is the right time for stimulation then? Brendan states that knowing the right time key. A large project that leads to definite progress, aspirations, athletic performance competition or an activity that will boost your goals to the next level are examples. 

For the long term and with just a few simple steps each day, one can truly enjoy an energizing lifestyle supported by sustainable nutrition. Brendan recommends a daily nutrient dense smoothie that includes greens such as chlorellamacaprobioticsenzymes and antioxidants. Chlorella provides healing and prevention properties while maca ensures strengthened adrenal glands and safeguards against burnout and side effects such as low quality sleep, weight gain and general fatigue. All very important aspects easily alleviated with the right choices.
