Starting your day off right will set you up for your best day ever.
With the long list of things to do in the morning it can be tough to start the day off on the perfect foot. With having to get ready for work, make breakfast, getting the kids ready for school, figuring out what to wear, getting your lunch and snacks ready for the day, watching the news, catching up on social media, planning your day, getting homework done before class, or anything in between, it is easy to lose sight of the importance of a Live Better Lifestyle (#livebetterlifestyle) morning routine.
Having a simple, healthy, and productive morning routine will start your day off right and lead you on a path to success. Let’s go over my 2 steps to effectively begin the healthiest day ever.
If you start off healthy, you will continue to be healthy. It’s not rocket science.
Have a large glass of spring water.
Sleep is the natural way for your body to detoxify. Throughout the night, while your mind relaxes and rests, your body is hard at work to set you up for the next day. This is one of the most amazing aspects of the human body. While at rest, everything you went through the day before, from breathing in dirty air in the city to drinking one too many beers, is being packaged up and getting ready to be sent out.
This is where drinking a large glass of spring water is extremely important. I choose a liter of Mountain Valley Spring Water because they package in a glass bottle and have the highest quality H2O. Consuming spring water within 5 minutes of waking up, will give your body one last flush to prime you for the day. Start out with a small glass and try and work your way up to a liter over time. Get hydrated.
Enjoy a freshly made Nutriblast.
Using The Nutribullet to create a whole food juice is the best way to replenish your body. After you have helped your body detoxify with a large glass of spring water, the next step is taking in all the best nutrients available in the most productive way for your body. Adding back what you need through a Nutriblast will drive the nutrients directly to your cells and replenish what your body needs in the best way possible. Freshly made juices fuel your body while using less energy to process than food, which is the most productive way to start your day.
This is where the fun starts. You can add your favorite combination of organic vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and superfoods to your nutriblast and give your body what is deserves.
Try out different recipes and change it up each day to get a variety of flavors. Try out my favorite morning recipe:

1 Handful of Organic Spinach
3 Fresh Organic Strawberries
1/2 Handful of Blueberries
2.5 tsp of Nutribullet Superfood Superboost
1 Tbs of Organic Raw Honey
16 oz. of David Wolfe’s Organic Vegan Protein Powder
1/4 Organic Avocado
10 oz. of Mountain Valley Spring Water
8 oz. of Harmless Harvest Raw Organic Coconut Water[/quote_box_center]
After incorporating these steps into your morning routine, you will feel ready to tackle the day like never before. By drinking spring water first thing when you wake up to wash out the system, and then reloading your body with a Nutriblast you will create momentum to fulfill your day with health and nourishment.
This momentum will build into a lifestyle and lead to better choices throughout. Your Live Better Lifestyle will continue to evolve with the opportunities to learn about true health.
Make every morning the best one yet.
