The Hidden Component of Health: Restful Sleep (Orb Sleep Complex Review)
There’s no doubt about it that diet counts for 5 gazillion % of fitness success, so that’s where my focus has been lately! Since completing the 21 Day Fix, I’ve been making sure to stay focused on proper food portioning in order to continue those habits (takes 21 days to make one!) and be aware of eating a little at a time throughout the day. LOTS of nutrients being in my system have definitely helped me fill in gaps that make me fell satisfied without craving sugars or candy as often – SHOCKER! I mean, I cheat, no lie – BUT I don’t cheat daily – no more candy bowl for this girl!I do take LOADS of antioxidants a day in my Shakeology so adding Matcha not only AMPS UP the Antioxidant power of this Super Food awesomeness, but can help transform it into a Green Tea smoothie [when using Vanilla] to give it a new and unique flavor![Disclaimer: I was given the opportunity to review Kiss Me Organics’ Green Tea Macha powder in exchange for a compensated review – all opinions in this post are my own]
