One of the most common questions I get is how I keep going all day, especially when we transition to the after work routine. Working Mom or not, it's safe to say we all start to lose steam come 4pm. Passing papers at the office or chasing a toddler all day is tiring and kudos to you Mama's that do both at the same time!
I operate on minimal amounts of caffeine, after having Sofia my body can't handle it, for some reason it throws me into anxiety overload. I've mixed and matched with a lot of supplements, done intensive research and with the help of some lovely ladies at my local health food store, I've found a solution that works for me.
This daily combo provides amazing energy.
Magnesium| helps ease stress & anxiety
Wheat Grass Superfood| gives me sustainable energy (you don't get the caffeine crash with this stuff!), it also has lots of digestive aids, detoxes the body and all around makes me feel great! A little pricey but I swear by it, been using it for years...even buy the travel packets when we're going on vacay.
Women's One-a-day Vitamin| I've tried a few brands, from drugstore cheapies to high-end liquid vitamins and Rainbow Light is by far my favorite. I used their prenatals & DHA when I was pregnant too. These are easy to swallow, don't upset my stomach & once again make me feel great.
DHA| Continued taking DHA after giving birth, hoping they keep my heart healthy!
1/2 tsp Magnesium mixed with an ounce of hot water
Breakfast bar and fruit
Usually have leftovers from dinner or pack a sandwich
I have a green smoothie with Sofia (recipe is under "snacks")
1 scoop of Amazing Greens Superfood mixed in 1 ounce of water
I try to eat healthy but if I have a craving for pizza or nachos I'm all over it
1/2 tsp Magnesium mixed with 1 ounce of hot water
Tea (Sleepytime, decaf green or red rooibos are my fave)
Lastly, water. I'm a water addict, I get legit pissed when Mike drinks from my glass. Most days I make a conscious effort to consume 8 glasses, the Water Lite Free app is great for keeping track.
Sofia also takes her water very seriously. ;)
Any tricks you have that keep your energy levels up?
