Super moms deserve a life of abundance. Abundance of good health, love of family and friends and happiness and contentment. At cleanfitmom.com we know one of the most important ingredients to having this well-deserved abundance is a healthy family and healthy you. How do super moms achieve healthy living? You guessed it! Clean eating and exercise.
Studies show that although staying active is extremely important, eating healthy is the number one priority whether we want to lose weight, fight disease or maintain a balanced state of mind and emotion. Clean eating can help super moms stay energized and happy so we can continue to enjoy our children and loved ones.
Let’s talk about power foods!
Kale as we all know is rich in essential vitamins and calcium. It is even proclaimed to help fight cancer and repair sick cells in our bodies. It helps lower our cholesterol and gives us tons of energy to keep up with our babies. Nutrition isn’t the only reason we love kale, though. It is crisp, light and filling. We can eat kale raw, steamed, sautéed or baked. It is a super food with super power!
Another power food cleanfitmom.com loves is quinoa. It is a grain that is cooked and eaten like rice. Easy to prepare and easy to eat. How does a tiny grain pack so much power? It has the full protein package with calcium and iron that our bodies can digest it easily. It can be eaten as a breakfast cereal but that’s another post.
Putting power foods together means an abundance of power for super moms.
