Ready to kick some ass today! High-ya, I am… on ginger 😛

Like a good ninjas, you must listen deeply to the voice within, and having the proper nutrition can help your mental clarity. Along with adding a wicked punch to your morning breakfast, Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, may help reduce muscle soreness and improve brain function.

Gettin yo ninja on with this nutrient powerhouse!

Greens contain more vitamins and minerals than any other food group – karate chop these into an easy drinking, delicious tasting smoothie. You can boost your immune system, fight disease with powerful antioxidants, improve health and longevity, and naturally boost your energy…Can you already feel yourself *Winning*

Ginger – Ginger is among the healthiest and zestiest spices on the planet. A natural anti-inflammatory, it may reduce nausea, help with digestion, fight cancer and boost the immune system. For athletes, ginger can open up your airways, assist in weight-loss, improve circulation and strengthen your immune system.

Avocado – Full of brain-boosting, muscle building and recovery enhancing omega-3 fatty acids, inflammation reducing antioxidants, and blood pressure reducing potassium (30% more than a banana!).

Kale – High in digestive-aiding fiber, muscle strengthening iron, and vision boosting Vitamin A!

Spinach – One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, this endurance enhancing leaf is full of iron, contains cancer fighting antioxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and 40% of your magnesium requirement daily. Whoa yeah baby let’s get it on!

Banana– Bananas are high in heart rate and blood pressure stabilizing potassium. Rich in antioxidants, which can provide protection from free radicals (not the tubular kind of radical.)

Dates – Dates are rich in blood-sugar stabilizing dietary fiber, age-slowing antioxidants and the essential minerals potassium and magnesium. Dates are an excellent source of iron, so if you’re feeling exhausted, boost iron levels with dates!

Matcha – You’re no matcha for me! When you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the leaf. Matcha boosts metabolism, burns calories, detoxifies, naturally calms the mind and relaxes the body, enhances mood and aids in concentration.

Turmeric – This long lost zesty relative of ginger has an impressive list of uses and benefits. Cancer-fighting is a badge it wears proudly, but also Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and helps support the body’s inflammation levels—a valuable supplement for those active in sport.

Cashew Milk – Rich in minerals like: zinc, phosphorus, iron, manganese, magnesium and copper. No one will cacha-you when you get a dose of this goodness before your sport.

Coconut Milk – Loaded with natural pH feeding electrolytes, immunity and energy enhancing lauric acid and  fat burning MCTs.
