Reach your daily protein macros with Clear Naked Whey Protein Isolate

Reach your daily protein macros with Clear Naked Whey Protein Isolate

I found the miracle product that helps me hit my protein goal without throwing my other macros out of whack! It never fails, when I log my foods I and up in a position where I come short of hitting my daily protein macros but I need to watch the calories and carbs as I try balancing. Finding that extra protein is one of the hardest parts of macro tracking! Then came Clear Naked Whey in delicious flavors I can stir into water for no added calories or use in recipes.

It is like a fruit drink and look at the nutrition label! How great are these macros? 2 full scoops is only 70 calories, 0g Fat and 3g Carbs with a whopping 15g protein! The perfect fix! An added bonus? There are no sugars and it is 100% pure whey protein isolate. It is one of the best forms of protein without the extra ‘crud’. It is lactose, soy and certified gluten free as well as non-GMO. This label is as clean as I want it to be!

Finally, a delicious drink that is high in protein, low in calories and aligns with macro, keto and many other diets. This makes it THREE Naked products I use daily. I also put a scoop of GUT in water in the morning (now I can just mix with this Clear Naked Whey) and I also use this Naked Energy pre-workout formula on my heavy weight training days. These are also available on Amazon!

Get fit while Playing Games & Workouts with Plankpad PRO Total Body Trainer

Get fit while Playing Games & Workouts with Plankpad PRO Total Body Trainer

One of my favorite spaces in my house is my fitness room. Over COVID I transformed a storage room into a home gym. I have slowly accumulated weights, machines and now I have the Plankpad PRO. This a plank and balance board that gives you a few options to motivate you as you work your whole body to get fit. You can see and feel the quality of this board right out of the box. The app has been flawless as well.

If you incorporate one exercise into your day, above all you may want to master and learn to hold a plank. When you hold a plank, you are working your arms, shoulders, back, abs, glutes and legs simultaneously. It is such a great exercise for the entire body. I always incorporate plank holds in my warm up before weight training. Now, I am even more motived to fit a warm up in with the fun games I can play as I work my body.

Once you download the free app you have options to choose a game that all have levels of easy, normal or hard. You can also choose workout videos and challenges. You also get a poster of a 30 day challenge. As you move through your 30 days you can choose to incorporate the workout choices to get your time in. I started with some Fruit Ninja because I have always loved that game. You get a timer in the upper corner so you know when it’s quit time. I dare you to stop cutting fruit right at 30 seconds or 1 minute…you’ll hold on just a bit longer!

The Plankpad PRO belongs in every gym for those times your motivation slips. I am in love with how fast I began holding my planks longer than I ever have. 2 weeks in and it has been a smooth incline through the challenges. This will make a great gift for the fitness enthusiast this year! Visit Plankpad PRO online and when you are ready to shop, find it available on Amazon.

The benefits of consuming Manuka Honey

The benefits of consuming Manuka Honey

Maybe you have heard of manuka honey. If not, Manuka honey has gained attention for its abundance of therapeutic effects from certain bacteria ailments to skin and immunity improvements. The Manuka plant of New Zealand is climate-sensitive and only flowers two to six weeks per year, making the honey a scarce resource.

Manuka honey can be great for your gut. According to a report published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, manuka honey had been found to be potent against 7 different Helicobacter pylori (h pylori) strains, but a similar effect was not observed with other types of honey. Using a Manuka honey with a UMF 10+ or higher seems best. UMF™ 15+ sits in the middle, between everyday wellness and more therapeutic uses. For this reason, it’s our all-time best selling Manuka honey.

This honey is also great for your immune system. Lab tests have shown that manuka honey contains certain substances that can stimulate cytokine production. Cytokines are signaling proteins involved in immune reactions by the body. They kickstart the defense mechanisms of the body and gets it to fight off pathogens and diseases.

These are just a few of the many benefits of manuka honeys. Shop the New Zealand Honey Co. to begin adding these benefits to your health!
