+ Catalyst: use pre-workout, post-workout & later in the day. You want steady doses throughout the day. BCAA’s are amino acids that help protect your muscles so you utilize fat instead of muscle for energy first. They help you reach that next level.
“provides a blend of branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine to fuel your body with muscle-building components when combined with exercise and a healthy diet.”

ProBiotic: take once a day to support your gut health. You will always find probiotics in my pantry. Fermented foods like kombucha, kefir & kimchi are also a source of probiotics.
“helps support healthy intestinal function and the ability to absorb nutrients from food and supplements.”

Spark: ready to give up coffee? Grab spark. I haven’t had coffee in over a month. Spark is loaded with vitamins & amino acids with a little bit of caffeine and helps with mental focus. My favorite flavors are mandarin & pink lemonade.
“delivers energy and enhanced mental focus with 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients”

OmegaPlex: take once a day to support healthy cholesterol levels & boost your mood. Contains essential omega-3 fatty acids.
“delivers a blend of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids to support cardiovascular health and the immune and nervous systems, and supports healthy skin, hair and nails.”

Majestic Hummus: enjoy with sliced jicama, carrots & especially on fitness bread.
jicama makes a delicious chip alternative.

Farmhouse Cultures: delicious kimchi & kraut.
fermented foods contain probiotics so they are great for a healthy gut.

Nutritional Yeast: you can sprinkle it on quinoa, lentil pasta, salads & more.
cheese substitute.

Fitness Bread: it’s delicious toasted with some avocado, lemon & cayenne. You can also use it for sandwiches.
use fitness bread to replace sourdough. 

Dark Chocolate: if you’re looking for something sweet try one degree chocolate granola. It’s SO good.
