Green super food smoothie bowl

Green smoothie bowl

Raw Vegan Gluten Free

Prep time: 5 min

Use organic ingredients in order to avoid all the chemicals, hormones and GMOs.

Ingredients:

½ banana

1 apple

Almond milk

2 tbsp of hempseeds

2 tbsp brown rice protein

1 tbsp spiroulina

1 tbsp wheatgrass

Topping:

20 Hippophae

10 blueberries

5 strawberries

10 almonds

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp sunflower seeds

Steps: 

Mix it all together in a mixer. Place your topping.

 

This is an optimal health booster. It is full of antioxidants, chlorophyll, micronutrients, fibers and super healthy fatty acids: omega 3, 6 and the very rare 7 from the Hippophae, which beautifully assist you in your fat loss process keeping your skin flexible, radiant, tight and smooth.

More importantly are the healthy fatty acids speeding up your own natural human growth hormone production: your fountain of youth and strength.

 

The real fountain of youth is in you. It is the growth hormone HGH:

HGH stimulates tissue growth, increases muscle tone and lean mass, enhances flexibility, thickens muscles.

From when you are born until the age of 30 years old approximately, HGH is naturally released into your bloodstream about an hour and a half after you go to sleep and once more before you wake up in the morning. High levels of HGH drop over time. That is one of the reasons that we are aging.

The good news is that you can naturally boost your HGH by top quality nutrition, exercise, quality sleep and healthy lifestyle.

Nutrition:

Healthy nutrition is extremely important in maintaining the natural production of HGH. Having adequate intake of good clean protein, in particular, has been found to be associated with HGH production. Best protein choice is plant based, such as hemp seeds, legumes etc combined with 20-30 % healthy fatty acids, omega 3, 6 & 7, which speeds up the natural HGH production. The omega 3, 6 & 7 are beautifully assisting in your fat loss process as well by keeping your skin flexible, smooth, tight and radiant. You will not get lose skin, it will beautifully follow up naturally, even with quite a bit of weight loss.

Exercise:

Exercise is one of the most powerful, natural ways to stimulate the release of HGH in the body.

One of the best workouts for HGH production is strength training, or muscle building exercises, at high intensity.

Lifting weights, or even doing push-ups, are effective.

Sleep:

Sleep is listed as the other powerful, natural means to trigger HGH production. In the April 2000 issue of “Growth Hormone and IGF Research,” researchers at the University of Chicago explain that there is a correlation between the amount of time spent in deep sleep and the amount of HGH produced in the body. Since HGH production is highest in the later hours of sleep, a short sleep span of five hours as opposed to at least seven will limit your natural production of HGH.It is very important to reach the deep D –sleep phase.

Reduce Stress:

Learning to control the stress in your life is critical to natural HGH production. While relaxation won’t actually trigger the secretion of HGH, if you are stressed, you will stop its natural production. Stress produces a rise in your body’s levels of the stress hormone adrenaline. The European Journal of Endocrinology reports that adrenaline will suppress the rise of HGH levels. Meditation, yoga, journaling and exercise have been found to help.

We receive human growth hormone bursts after heavy exercise. 

Weight lifting is an excellent choice for this. Laboratory tests in Miami have produced exciting results. People in their sixties who’ve gone at least ten to fifteen years without any muscle tone are learning to lift weights and create muscle mass equivalent to that of 20 year olds, with energy levels to match. 

What does this mean? 

It means you can be as strong in your seventies and eighties as you were in your twenties and thirties. This however only if you give your body the nutrients and rest it needs.

  • One year progress ‼️
- muscle gain was on the menu, and indeed I gained muscle mass. I gained energy. I gained more knowledge applying this on myself. 
It’s so funny how scared I was to get fat again (remember I used to be 103 kg). My meal plan with a caloric surplus, which added up to more than the amounts that male triathlons are eating, looked a bit extreme. 
All it really did was making me thrive and shine. And understand even more just how important your nutritional meal plan is. Just how huge getting enough sleep is. How important it is to train real hard according to your current state aiming straight towards your goal is, constantly improving and applying new methods. It’s the first time in my career as a sports nutritionist and a personal trainer, I worked myself as a top athlete. The results speak for themselves.
Aiming for optimal health and peak performance, your best and happiest version does exactly that. Making you feel full of energy. Feeding your body with the exact right nutrients, specifically designed for your personal needs and training regimen. Hard training doesn’t make much sense without nutrient support, because what exactly are you going to grow back stronger on? What exactly did you feed your body to build from? How did you support your immune system to fight inflammation and keep your body at its peak performance?

  • Reaching that goal of yours 💯💪🏼
- requires work‼️
- No one ever got fit and ripped by not putting in the training hours!
- No one ever build lean incredible muscle mass without feeding the process! It requires nutritional meal planning specifically for your current state aiming straight towards your goal. - Body fat loss is “simple” but improving body composition, meaning losing body fat and building muscle, is a lot trickier. It requires the use of smart nutritional meal planning and the best of training methods. 
A lot of people who focus on “fat loss” think of their training program as a way to burn more calories, and because of that they assume that the key is to do higher reps and a lot more sets, or/and they end up doing way to much cardio in comparison to lifting weights and actually building some nice lean muscle mass. They are right, you definitely have to increase energy expenditure, but it should not be in the expense of the growth stimulus placed on the muscles. It’s more important to focus on increasing density than volume. Density refers to doing more work per unit of time. This will keep your metabolic rate high both during and after your training. If you plan it correctly you promote growth. And body fat burn! - girls, I mean growth at all the right places 😉 think glutes, lean tight abs and firm arms. With just one dumbbell at hand we can make magic happen.

  • Beach mode on‼️
Feeling so comfortable in your own skin ☺️
- a great expression. An amazing feeling too. - Your skin is alive‼️
It is NOT a dead piece of over-washed clothing. 
Your skin can follow your new transformed fit body. It doesn’t necessarily remain lose. When your transformation is done correctly, your skin will get back into place. This is possible when your transformation is done step by step with quality nutrition specifically calculated for your current state aiming straight towards your goal and specific training for your needs. Lose skin is often created by crash diets, not getting enough nutrient-rich food, not enough water, not enough micronutrients, wrong nutrition, lack of sleep, not helping the skin naturally rebuild, repair and heal itself. The BIG must do is build muscle mass: why? It both build a round, hard, firm foundation and it creates micro trauma: which is a good thing. When we train really hard we aim for micro trauma, and IF we feed the recovery process correctly, we grow back stronger.
