Give Yourself A Boost

Feeling a little run down after the holiday? Maybe you indulged, so your metabolism is trying to catch up.

Here are a couple easy ways to start giving yourself a boost:

  1. Throw some flax seeds into your morning smoothie. Flax seeds are a good source of omega-3’s, which help stabilize your metabolism.
  2. Replace your coffee with green tea this week. Green tea contains a type of polyphenol called catechin, which helps lift your energy level naturally. That’s the beauty of antioxidants.
  3. Snack on whole grains, like rice crackers, throughout the day to regulate your blood sugar.
  4. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of  magnesium, iron, and zinc. Snack on leftover seeds to increase your energy level and boost your overall health.

Happy Holidays!
